The game started out as a slug fest.

Alex Parsons started the game off with a quick hop into the endzone. The Tigers responded immediately after to end in a tie after the first half.

The second quarter saw even more action. The Tigers delivered another slug but soon after the Chargers slugged right back with an 11 yard pass to Banta.

At the end of the first half the Tigers took a 21-13 lead.

However, the second half proved to be a different story all together. North Montgomery shut out the Tigers the rest of the game to make the final score 41-21.

The Chargers had a huge second half as they scored three times in the third quarter alone. The dagger came at the beginning of the fourth as Alex Parsons carried the ball six yards for the final touchdown.

“The only thing I had to say to the team is it’s our decision on how this game ends. Let’s go out and make it happen,” Coach Josh Thompson said.

The passing game was huge in this game for Baylee Adams. He passed 17 times and completed 12 of those passes for 238 yards. On the receiving end of 121 of those yards was Senior Devon Zachary.

Zachary was very happy with how the offense played overall.

“The line blocked well and let Baylee set his feet and get the ball to an open receiver,” Zachary said.

Coach Thompson is looking to keep the winning streak going.

“We just have to take it week by week and work our way through the season,” he said.

Adams agrees with Thompson.

“The bar will always be set high and we got to keep it rolling,” Adams said. “The game we lost against Brebeuf was a tough one, we just have to keep looking ahead.”

The Chargers are now 3-1 and a 2-0 in the Sagamore Conference.

Next Friday, the Chargers will take on the Danville Warriors in a conference matchup.
