Onward to Playoffs

On a cold and miserable Friday the matchup between the Churchill Chargers and the Roosevelt Rough Riders took place. This matchup decided who would go to playoffs and it was a game for the ages. It was a close game throughout, but towards the end was when the real action took place.

Down 20-10 with only a few minutes left the chargers had to act fast…. AND DID! Senior quarterback Derek Perez ran in a touchdown to bring the game within 3. Now it was up to the defense to give our offense another chance.

On third down the Rough Riders decided to throw which was a costly mistake. The pass was tipped by senior Luke rosas, and then tipped of the hands of Junior Braden Gill, and finally landed in the hands of sophomore Gavin castro. This gave our offense a shot to send us to playoffs. The high powered Churchill offense took it all the way down and scored to take the lead 24-20.

With time running out,Roosevelt took their shot deep and failed. Sophomore Gavin Castro came in clutch again with another interception to seal the deal and send the Chargers into playoffs. They will be matched up against the Brandeis Broncos in the first round which is sure to be a great matchup.

The Turkey Shoot Competition

From November 12th to the 16th, JROTC is hosting the annual turkey shoot which rewards first to third place winners a turkey. Students will be able to attend from first to eighth period, and can fire five shots for two dollars using a pellet gun.

The objective operates simply. The maximum total score is 50 points, and the most a single shot can yield is 10 points. The goal is to make as many accurate hits possible to place high enough for the turkey prize. Since last year though, fourth place winners have also been given a rubber chicken as their takeaway. The Turkey Shoot has witnessed gradual rise in popularity though, and concessions have been planned to entertain those who watch or participate.

“We will be having movies playing, and concessions with popcorn, slushies, some candy, and chips,” junior Brendan Bishop said. “It’s something we do every year for the school, and a way we can raise money at this time of year. It’s a way of us showing thanks by having students come out and have fun.”
