Back-to-back wins have the St. Clair County Saints atop the Class 4A, Region 6 standings at 2-0 after they easily defeated Douglas, 30-16, last week.
SCCHS is 2-1 overall, and looks to make it three straight wins Friday with a trip to Guntersville.
SCCHS scored three of the four times they had the football in the first half and took a 22-8 halftime lead. They cruised in the second half.
The Saints marched 79 yards in eight plays the first time they had the ball. Kartez Carr had runs of 27, 13, 4 and 17 yards in the drive. The touchdown came on a four-yard run by Juan Montgomery. Matt Hicks threw to Billy Kirby for the two-point conversion, to make it 8-0 with 5:12 remaining in the first quarter.
Douglas fumbled the next time they had the ball, and Chase Acker recovered for the Saints at their own 41-yard line. Six plays later, and on the first play of the second quarter, Joshua Hardin scored on a six-yard run. The two-point conversion by Hicks was no good, and the score was 14-0.
Douglas marched 65 yards in 11 plays and scored on a one-yard run. The two-point conversion pass was good to make the score 14-8 with 6:30 remaining in the first half.
After a couple of possession changes, the Saints only needed two plays to march 57 yards, and it was all Carr. He had runs of 30 yards and 27 yards for the touchdown. Hicks threw to Joshua Hardrick for two, making it 22-8 with 3:12 remaining in the first half.
It turned out to be the halftime score.
St Clair took the ball to start the second half, and marched 72 yards in 12 plays, using almost half the quarter on the drive. The touchdown came on a seven-yard run by Hardin. Carr ran in the two-point conversion to make the score 30-8 with 6:50 remaining in the third quarter.
Douglas added a touchdown in the fourth quarter to make the final score 30-16.
