Cambridge-Salem Rolls Past Corinth


It was senior recognition day Saturday afternoon in Cambridge with appreciation shown to the football seniors in a nice pregame ceremony lasting about ten minutes.  The Indians needed about the same amount of time to decide the game’s outcome as Cambridge-Salem dominated from the start and rolled to a 62-6 decision over the Tomahawks of Corinth.

The Indians got on the board with some fans were still choosing their seats, when Tommy English took the opening kickoff to the house from 75 yards out and with the Austin Hackman point after Cambridge-Salem led 7-0 just :12 in.

After a Corinth three and out a Kaeden Ogilvie punt return to the Tomahawk one-yard line set up English for his second score with 10:14 left in the period.

The Tomahawks again failed to pick up yardage on their second series and were forced to punt and Indian points came quickly, this time on a 26-yard tote by Tyler Linendoll and a 21-0 advantage with less than five minutes gone in the first.

Less than a minute later a five-yard fumble return by Linendoll pushed the lead to 28-0 and with 1:24 remining in the quarter it was English again, this time from nine yards out and the decision was in.

Aiden Terry on a 10-yard TD run and an Eli Truehart 16-yard touchdown pass to Lane Peters added to the Indians cushion in the second.

In the third Doug Pennington scored on a 12-yard run for Cambridge-Salem and Ogilvie did the same from 22 yards out pushing the lead to 62-0.

On the last series of the contest the Tomahawks put together a drive and with :48 remining Gabe Allen scored on a 25-yard run to maybe the biggest ovation of the game, as fans understood, applauding Corinth’s effort at the end of a tough afternoon.

With the victory Cambridge-Salem improves to 5-0 on the year and looking quite comfortable in their new Class C digs, where the Indians hold the number one ranking in the state.
