The Football Team Dishes Out a Beatdown


Tyler Mozingo, Sports Editor

The Cougars came to Bullitt East on Friday and the Chargers took it to them. 

East walked home with a 46-3 victory as it wasn’t close from the start.

It was the debut of East’s ‘back in black’ uniforms and the Chargers showed why they earned the right to wear them. The Chargers were ready for the game all week and that showed Friday night. Once they scored, they never looked back.

The offense for the Chargers came out guns blazing as they scored three times in five plays, but one of them was called back for a holding penalty.

Senior Linebacker Landon Maki got the defense going early as he picked off BC quarterback Warren Coogle to get the offense set up with good field position as Junior Quarterback Aeron Adams found Junior Wide Receiver Bryce Clements wide open for a touchdown to go up 7-0.

The score continued to rise as Adams hooked up with freshman wide receiver Camron Brogan to go up 13-0 late in the first quarter. That connection between Adams and Brogan wasn’t short lived as they connected again for another passing touchdown to go up 19-0 with nine minutes left in the half. Extra points were a struggle for the Chargers, though, as they didn’t capitalize on a few.

The Cougars had no answer for the explosive Charger offense as Senior running back Montrell Page added a rushing touchdown to the stat sheet to go up 26-0 and Bullitt Central had no offense to help their defense.

The Chargers picked off Coogle again as this time it was Senior safety Mason Huff with the interception that set up East with another opportunity to score. This time it was sophomore Yared Raley getting in on the act as he had a rushing touchdown to extend the lead to 32-0.

The phrase ‘stay on the gas pedal and don’t let off’ proved to come true as the Chargers caught Bullitt Central off guard and recovered an onside kick looking to score again before the half. Adams found Clements for his second receiving touchdown of the night to lead 39-0, and at that point it became a running clock. The Chargers took a 39-0 lead going into the half.

With the running clock, there was little action in the second half as the third quarter was complete with no scoring on either side.

Clements had himself a day as he hauled in another pass for a touchdown from Adams. That proved to be the final scoring for the Chargers as they went up 46-0. The Cougars were able to crack the scoreboard as the clock hit zero as they hit a field goal. The final was 46-3, with East coming home with the annual ‘Bullitt Cup’.

The Chargers are currently (4-1) and hit the road again as they will take on North Hardin  Friday, Sept. 27 at 7:30 p.m.
