CHELSEA — Chelsea entertains a potent Salina Wildcats team tonight that’s fresh off a huge shutout win over Inola.

Last Friday night, the Wildcats rolled past Inola, 28-0 in their home opener. The common interest with that result, though, is Inola shutout Chelsea, 36-0 in Week 1.

Chelsea (1-1) rebounded, though, with an impressive 36-18 win over Foyil in Week 2.

Running back Damien McLeod sparked the Green Dragons to victory with 209 rushing yards on 33 carries and three touchdowns against Foyil.

Kickoff for tonight’s showdown against Salina is at 7 p.m. in Chelsea. The win over Foyil was head coach Gary Kirk’s first at Chelsea.
