REEDLEY - The Bears played shut down defense while their offense proved to be too much to handle for Independence High in a 35-0 non-league win over the Falcons (0-2) at Sal Gonzalez Field at Reedley High on Friday.
The Bears improved to 2-0 after the win. Their defense put up a goose egg a week after allowing 21 points in its win over Kerman. It’s Selma’ first shutout victory since a 27-0 win over Kingsburg during the 2017 season.
The Bears’ offense out gained Independence 311-144 yards and attempted one punt. In last year’s matchup, Selma fell 47-0 to the Falcons.
