Saline used a 16-point second quarter run to pull away from the Skyline Eagles in a 51-18 win on the road Friday.

Saline improved to 6-3 in the SEC red 12-6 overall.

10 Lady Hornets scratched the scoresheet in Friday’s victory, which competed the season sweep of Skyline.

“It was a great team win,” Saline coach Jeff Waltz said. “I thought our defense was outstanding tonight. We had a couple offensive lulls, but out defense kept Skyline from making any ground. We got contributions from everyone tonight.”

Amy Theisen drove to her Lodi Lane home at lunch hour Wednesday to take out the family dog, Cooper. She saw smoke coming from the roof of her family's ranch home.

“I wasn’t completely sure it was coming out of my house. So, I went in and immediately got my dog out. Then I went around back and saw the smoke coming from the two vents, so I called 911,” said Theisen, who was on break from her job at Saline Area Schools.

Nobody but Cooper was home at the time of the fire. Theisen said the dog appears healthy.
