Region 3-4A got off to a fine start for Senatobia last Friday night.
Traveling to Greenwood in the Warriors’ first game as part of a new regional alignment, SHS rumbled to a 22-0 halftime lead before taking care of the Bulldogs, 35-8.
Senatobia scored twice in the first quarter, as Tyreese Hullette’s 25-yard run and a 15-yard run from Jordan Osborn put the Warriors up 14-0. Hullette would again find the end zone in the second quarter, this time on a 30-yard carry, as the Warriors stretched their lead to 22-0 after two successful two-point conversions.
Hullette also showed off his arm in the third quarter, as the quarterback hit JaBrysten Abram on a 13-yard pass in the end zone, pushing the lead to 28-0 after an unsuccessful kick.
Greenwood got on the board late in the quarter with a short seven-yard run, but the Warriors put the game away for good in the fourth, as Hullette hit Khalil Kimble on a 19-yard touchdown.
Senatobia totaled 405 yards, with nearly 300 coming on the ground. Osborn accounted for 193 yards to lead all rushers, while Hullette ran for 86 of his own, while completing eight of his 14 passes for 106 yards and two touchdowns.
Abram and Hunter Mabry combined for five catches and 82 yards to lead the Warriors’ receivers.
With the win, Senatobia won its sixth in a row, improving to 6-1 on the season and 1-0 in region competition. The Warriors will be off this week, before closing out the final two weeks of the season at home against Yazoo City and Clarksdale.
