Playoff Hopeful

The mighty Churchill football team has fought back from a 1-4 record to a good 4-5 record putting them in the spotlight of playoff hopefuls. Only losing one in the past four games, the chargers have one opponent left to play. The Roosevelt Rough Riders.

The chargers are usually victorious when matched up against the Rough Riders, but this matchup is so much more intense. With a win the chargers will end the season with a 5-5 record that will put them in the playoffs, but with a loss,  their season will end with broken hearts and regrets.

This seasons early struggles set the chargers back quite a bit, but they have fought  back with heart, sweat, and tears to get a shot to make the playoffs, and there is nothing stopping them besides themselves.
