DOVER -- North Montgomery competed in another nail bitter of a game, where the team with the only score won the game.

This week the Chargers were able to get the victory in a close game. They won on the road 8-0 against the Western Boone Stars. The only score came with 11 minutes and 53 seconds left in the second quarter. Junior quarterback Baylee Adams found his favorite target and fellow junior Alex Parsons for a 6-yard touchdown.

North Montgomery's head coach Josh Thompson said it's good to be on the winning side of a close one.

"Oh, it's great! I'm excited for the guys. It was a great. I loved the effort out of those kids tonight" Thompson said.

"It's great to win after a close loss last week" Parsons said.

This game was all about defense from the start of the game until the last seconds ticked off the clock. Both teams were held to one first down in the first quarter. The Chargers held the run-heavy Stars to 91 total rushing yards, which is the lowest they have been held to all season.

"Very proud of the defense tonight. They read their keys and didn't allow the big plays" Thompson said.

Junior outside linebacker Jordan Banta said the reason the defense is playing so well is all due to watching film and knowing the other teams offense.

"We have been pretty solid the last couple games," Banta said. "Whenever you watch a lot of film you just know what's coming and what's going to happen."

The Chargers winning score was on a six yard fade route from Adams to Parsons early in the second quarter. It all started when the Charger defense forced another three-and-out on a drive where the Stars had negative six yards. A good return set the Chargers up on the Stars 28-yard line. Four plays later, Adams found Parsons. Senior tight end Kobi Wray caught the two-point conversion. That was all the defense needed.

"We just needed to contain Baxter and stop their fullback" Parsons said.

The Chargers defense did just that. Baxter had a total of six rushing yards while Martin had 61.

"It's good to be on the up swing and we have Danville next week" Thompson said.

The Chargers improve to 5-3 (4-2 SAC) and will close the regular season at home against the Warriors on Friday. The win knocks Western Boone (6-2, 4-2 SAC) from contention in the Sagamore Athletic Conference, which Tri-West won outright with a 56-0 win over Southmont Friday.
