Game recap submitted from North Decatur
In a game that wasn’t scheduled to happened until the past Tuesday, the Chargers fought back from a double digit point deficit not once, but twice to defeat the defending 1A State Champion Covenant Christian Warriors. With a COVID cancellation, the Chargers picked up the #6 ranked Warriors for a contest that would prove to be a knock-down, drag out affair. Under the threat of rain for the majority of the game (until it finally arrived late in the fourth quarter) the Chargers started the game with a quick interception, but were not able to capitalize on their defensive stand. The Warriors would find the scoreboard twice in the first two quarters before the Chargers rallied back with 1:31 left in the second quarter. The Chargers would start the second half with a score, but the Warriors answered just two plays later. The Warriors would find the end zone one more time in the third quarter, but the resilient Chargers would not quit. Reid Messer found the endzone late in the third quarter and at the 7:13 mark of the fourth quarter, the Chargers scored the go ahead touchdown. Despite multiple opportunities thereafter, the Chargers defense stood strong and kept the Warriors at bay until the offense could take the victory formation to end the game. The Chargers will face county opponent South Decatur Cougars in the first round of sectional play.
