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.
