BC’s top offensive performer last week was quarterback Connor Douglas, who completed 12-of-20 passes for 150 yards. D.J. Nunnery led Bogue Chitto in rushing with four catches for 64 yards.

Defensively, Sherman Jackson led the Bobcats with 11 tackles. Kody Halford contributed with 10 tackles. Kobe Roberts provided nine tackles. Terrance Morgan and Chris Taylor had seven tackles apiece.

Last year, Salem roared past Bogue Chitto 46-7 at Troy Smith Field.
