Bayside Admirals secure playoff berth with 39-6 home win over Southside Selma

DAPHNE, Ala.— Bayside Academy’s Admirals assured themselves of a playoff spot Thursday night with a 39-6 win over Southside-Selma in their final Class 3A, Region 1 contest of the regular season.

Bayside scored on every drive of the first half and the first possession of the third quarter to lead 32-0 before reserves took over.

Tripp Puckett scored twice on first-half runs of 24 and 9 yards. Landon Lasseter scored on a 7-yard Hunter Slater touchdown pass and a 1-yard run to make it 26-0 at the half. Lasseter then capped the opening drive of the second half with a 13-yard rushing TD. In the fourth quarter, freshman quarterback Trey Barry found Blake Giles for a 19-yard TD pass. Zack  Dyas scored on a 2-point conversion and Chris Johnson kicked an extra point and intercepted Panther quarterback Kajari Gibbs to set up Puckett’s second score. The Admiral defense also made a fourth-and-goal stand inside their own two yard line in the third period.

The Panthers scored with under a minute left in the game when Christopher Raymond found Derick Daniels in the endzone for a 19-yard TD toss.

“I’m really proud of the kids tonight,” said Bayside coach Phil Lazenby. “They understood we had to have this one and also understood how we had to play to do it. Selma has the ability to score on any play if you let them get by you, but our defense played smart. Kept them in front of us, stayed in our lanes. And then the offense did a good job of playing aggressively early and putting some points up. Offensive line did a fantastic job.”

The 5-4, 5-2 Admirals will host 5A Satsuma next week in the final regular-season contest.
