Sports

SAVANNAH, Ga. (WSAV) – You couldn’t ask for a much better way to send Savannah State’s homecoming crowd into their Saturday nights.

Leading by just a single touchdown in the third quarter, the Savannah State football team rattled off 28 unanswered points to earn a blowout 49-14 win over Clark Atlanta.

The Tigers jumped out to a 21-0 lead in the first half in front of the sold-out crowd, but allowed the Panthers to claw back into the game with a pair of touchdowns and make it a 21-14 game in the third quarter.

The fourth quarter belonged to the Tigers, as Savannah State regrouped and roared back with 2 rushing touchdowns, a JT Hartage touchdown pass to Adunte Devereux, and a fumble recovery touchdown from defensive lineman Salik McRae.

Do-it-all sophomore Einaj ‘Quick Six’ Carter was efficient in the ground game and led the Tigers with 109 yards and touchdown on just six carries.
