North Montgomery will travel to Danville with the hopes of earning its first Sagamore Conference victory under the Friday night lights.

The Chargin’ Chargers started the season 2-0 behind a balanced rushing attack and a strong offensive line display. Since then, the Chargers have let Southmont come from behind for a 41-31 county victory on Sept. 2 and failed to stop the bleeding as Lebanon walked out of Linden with a 40-9 victory on a Saturday after inclement weather postponed the Sept. 9 action.

Chargers head coach Josh Thompson feels that his team needs to complete four quarters of play to win their games.

“We need to continue with a good start but we have to finish.” Thompson said. “Our players understand that we need to improve in all three phases of the game and we have had better focus this week.”

North Montgomery’s quarterback Colin Knecht has 651 passing yards, six touchdowns and four interceptions to go with a 49.5 percent completion rating. He has thrown to juniors Micah Wray and Dalton Surface 11 times for 142 yards and 201 yards respectively. Surface has four of Knecht’s six touchdown passes. Senior Isaac Fruits also has 11 receptions for 186 yards with one touchdown.

The Chargers have a spear-headed rushing attack in the form of seniors Nate Emmert and Caleb Randolph. Emmert has 144 yards on 31 carries good enough for 4.6 yards per carry. Randolph has 179 yards on 33 carries and three touchdowns.

The Danville Warriors find themselves in the same boat, as they are also 2-2 on the year and 0-2 in SAC action. Senior quarterback Christian Schabel comes in with a 47.3 percent completion rating while racking up 573 passing yards, five touchdowns and five interceptions.

Senior fullback and outside linebacker James Cosgrove leads the Warriors in rushing with 60 carries for 306 yards, good enough for 5.1 yards per carry. Danville has a trio of junior receivers that have 10 catches or more. Ben Stevens leads that group with 15 receptions worth 170 yards. Alec Burton has 13 receptions for 122 yards and Zach Luken rounds out the bunch with 10 catches for 200 yards.

Kickoff is set for 7 p.m. at Danville High School.
