HIGH SCHOOL FOOTBALL: Chargers celebrate a homecoming win
The Chancellor Chargers put on a great performance on their homecoming weekend, defeating Millbrook 37–3.
Chancellor played great run defense, holding the Pioneers to 50 yards on the ground.
Chancellor opened the scoring with a 5-yard touchdown run from Jamal Jones. After a Millbrook field goal, the Chargers rattled off 30 unanswered points to seal the victory.
Jones led the Chargers on the ground with 156 yards on 19 carries with three touchdowns. Freshman quarterback Jason Brown had over 100 total yards, and the Chargers defense forced three interceptions.
“We had a good week of practice. That helped us play well. Our line was blocking the best they have all year,” Jones said.
With this being Chancellor’s homecoming game, there was plenty of incentive to play hard.
“Its definitely easier to go to the dance now after this win,” Jones joked.
This was the first win of the season for the Chargers, who have next week off before starting district play.
“This [win] definitely puts us in the right direction, especially heading into our first district game. It leads us into a bye week nice and strong. I look forward to having another strong week of practice,” Jones said.
Chancellor head coach Bob Oliver couldn’t agree more.
“It was a great team win. I’m happy for the team and for the coaching staff,” said coach Oliver. “Homecoming is a special night for a football player, and we got the job done. We executed well on offense and played great defense.”
The Chargers sported a rarely seen black alternative jersey for their annual celebrated game.
“The kids wanted to wear the black jerseys tonight. We haven’t worn them in a while, so the kids were excited and they had fun tonight,” Oliver said.
The Chargers (1–4) play at Caroline Oct. 11.
