The Prentiss Christian Saints dominated the Christian Collegiate Academy (CCA) Cougars in all phases of the game with a 36-0 victory in the first home game of the season Friday night.

Jacob Anderson scored on a 24-yard run before halftime to give the Saints a 20-0 lead.

The Saints’ defense opened up scoring in the second half with a tackle by Triston Bridges, resulting in a safety, adding two points to their lead.

Hunter Bolin and Micah Bullock led the defense with six tackles each and Layton Hudson had a crucial sack of the quarterback, stopping a Bulldog drive. Colson continued the scoring attack with a 27-yard run.

Finally, the Saints defense finished up the scoring on an electric 67-yard interception return by Jacob Anderson, culminating in a 36-0 win.
