Savannah State proved that while defense may not be a problem this season, scoring points might be.

The Orange and Blue teams at Saturday's scrimmage combined for only 186 total yards and one touchdown.

The Orange won the game 7-0 on a touchdown pass from JaCorey Kilcrease to DeLeon Hollinger with just over 3 minutes left in the 4th quarter.

Kilcrease was 4-14 on the game for 57 yards, and interception and that touchdown.

For the Blue team, Brandon Webster was 9-13 for 25 yards.

Reginald May led all rushers with 41 yards on 12 carries.

Coach Theo Lemon says he was happy with the running game, but his passing game needed work.

He also believes there are a few more players who haven't made it to camp yet who will help put points on the board.

Overall coach Lemon was pleased with his team's effort and believes they are on the right track to bettering last year's 2-9 record.
