Varsity Football · Football Blows Out Murray 70-3

The defense came out and set the tone early for the Chargers, quickly eliminating any hopes Murray had for a first round upset.  The Chargers forced several turnovers, including a pick 6 by linebacker Josh Wilson.  The offense got things going later in the first quarter and then dominated the second en route to a 56-3 half time lead and eventually the 70-3 win.

Austin Bell ended the game with 3 touchdowns, 2 rushing and 1 off a screen pass that went for over 50 yards.  John Mitchell hauled in 2 TD’s, both on deep passes over the middle from Cole Hagen.  Mitchell’s 2 touchdowns were both over 70 yards from scrimmage.

The Chargers will face Viewmont in the 5A quarterfinals.  The game is tentatively scheduled for 4:00 PM on Friday Nov. 2and will be played at Charger stadium.  Follow this week for ticket information.
