The Chargers came out a little slow for the game and were unable to score any points in the first half of the game. The Patriots were able to break through and score 24 points in the first half of the game. During the second half of the game, the Chargers seemed to pour on their bat- tling spirit and score points, along with holding the Pa- triots scoreless in the last quarter of the game. Howev- er, the damage was done and the Charger ended up losing to the Patriots 42-11. Pike Central Charger Car- son Wiscaver was the team's leading scorer of the night, scoring nine of the eleven points the Chargers made. While Joshua Harker did a "really good job of blocking," according to Coach Damon Schnarr. Coach Schnarr said, "Their (Heritage Hills) half court pressure, man-to-man de- fense gave us fits all night as they challenged every drib- ble and pass. When we faced that pressure and attacked, we got good looks, but they just didn't fall for us. Defen- sively, we gave up far too ma- ny second-chance points off of offensive rebounds."

Since Larry had already taken a buck during bow season, a five-pointer became her tar- get when she switched her shotgun for Larry's rifle. The result was a shot through the heart at about 200 yards. Jace Searls bags nice eight-point Eleven-year-old Jace Searls took an eight-point buck last Saturday using a 6.5 Creedmore caliber ri- fle in Pike County, near Bowman.
