Chargers Headed in Right Direction after Win over Nelson County

Right back on track.

The Chargers football team had been struggling to say the least in the past few weeks to open up the season, but this changed last Friday as Bullitt East took down Nelson County 33-21.

Bullitt East, coming off a 7-3 loss against the Shelby County Rockets, was hungry for another win. They practiced hard all week, made a few adjustments in the offensive system, and focused on executing and controlling what they could control.

The Chargers controlled the line of scrimmage and were able to open up holes for the running backs, and in return the running backs gained chunks of yards. “It’s always nice being able to come away with a ‘W’, and when your able to execute on what we failed to do in the weeks before, it feels good to know that we have the ability to do that,” said junior linebacker Josh Bynum-Cook. “We need to ride that positive energy into the upcoming games, especially this week against BC (Bullitt Central) in the start to keep the Bullitt Cup. We have all the pieces to do some good things, it all just needs to fall into place,” said Bynum-Cook.

Although the Chargers walked out of Nelson County with a win, it was bittersweet in a way. On the opening kickoff, star senior running back Ty Hawkins returned the kick and was injured on the play in what is believed to be a season ending leg/foot injury. Also, just before halftime, starting linebacker Blake Rhoades landed awkwardly on his hand and is also out for the rest of the season after fracturing two bones in his hand.

Even with two key missing pieces for the Chargers offense and defense, they will still look to ride the winning vibes down to the other side of U.S. Highway 44 as they take on their rival, the Bullitt Central Cougars. The Chargers go into the game sitting with a 2-3 record, and a win will put them back at .500 and give them a good confidence boost to finish the season strong.
