In 4A North , Salem welcomed Dominion to Salem Stadium. The Spartans could clinch another ten win season, especially if the offense continued to click like it had in recent weeks. Stephen Magenbauer's team had lit up the scoreboard for 40 plus points in six of the last seven weeks.
Salem walked out of the locker room and the Spartans were ready for this second-round matchup against Dominion.
We pick up the action early in the first quarter when Coleman Fox bounced one up the middle, took it to the left side and went 27 yards for the score. Salem was out front quickly 7-nothing.
Fox was at work again on the next drive. This time he carried it deep into Dominion territory to the 20-yard line.
Two plays later Devante Payne finished the drive, plunging in from 1-yard out. It was 14-nothing still in the first.
On the next drive for Salem, Fox was at it again. He went up the middle completely untouched. He admired the scenery as he goes 66 yards. It was Salem 21-zip on just three possessions.
Dominion was trying to get something going as Donnie Gasser hit Justin Lyles in the right flat for 17 yards and the score. 21-6.
Fox was going back to work on the next drive this time he bobbed and weaved his way 56 yards like a bowling ball. And the Spartans were back in business deep in Titan territory.
Three plays later Austin Couling hit Fox on the left side. He rolled on into the endzone. It was 28-6 Salem.
Salem rolls on to win it 52-26.
