Jr Pee Wee
The Junior Pee Wee Chargers played a tough last home game on Saturday against the Orland Aztecs. The JPW fell behind by three scores in the first half. The defense was led by Linebacker Pergish Montgomery and defensive guard Elijah Croy. Elijah was able to penetrate their offensive line and made several tackles in Orland’s backfield. Defensive Ends Devon Applewhite and Randall Hughes sealed the outside. Also Linebacker Titus Christy stepped in and was involved in several tackles. Orland attempted several pass plays, but cornerbacks Avery Jerry, Jai Case, Wyatt Weddle and Safeties Davon Ruiz and Tanner Watson played great cover defense against Orland’s receivers.
Even with the slow start, the JPW regrouped in the second half and locked down Orland’s offense. The Chargers were able to regain possession due to Linebacker Lyle Frank’s interception. The Chargers offense, led by Quarterback Tyler Rightmier, responded by completing several pass plays. WR Davon Ruiz had one reception. Lyle Frank had another reception and ran it to the five yard line for a gain of sixty yards. Tyler Rightmier was able to score the next play on a quarterback sneak behind his blockers Tanner Ewing, Tony Fernandez, Earl Croy, Jai Case and Kristopher Hogue. The Aztecs were unable to put the ball in the end zone in the second half.
The Chargers were on fire this weekend for the last home game of the season. The first half began with a 30-yd, first down run by Cale Cool. On the very next play Tyraye Bush scored a TD. Our defense was amazing with tackles by Jacob Lisby, Skyler Conrad, Timothy Soli, Caden Corbin, Tyraye Bush, Trevor Ewing, Delbert Henson, and Tyler Robinson. Jeremy Persing had three tackles in the backfield. Our Charger offense was also on fire, with outstanding runs by Bush and Soli, which led to another Charger TD by Soli. The Aztecs came back with a TD of their own, but Delbert Henson blocked the extra point. Next, Bush ran back a 70 yd kickoff return for a TD, followed by a conversion by Cool. Robert Giannini was the next Charger to score a TD run, with the extra point by Bush. The score at halftime was Yreka 26 – Orland 6.
The second half of the game was more of the same. Great defensive playing by Jamiel Nicholson, Tyler Robinson, Gabe Koch, Trevor Ewing, Timothy Soli, Kaleb Hammond, Delbert Henson, Caden Corbin, Kellen Smith, Cameron Hagerman, Lorenzo Martinez, and Anthoni Evangelisti. There were two interceptions in the second half by Bush and Soli. The offense was working hard with the skills of Cool, Bush, Giannini, Soli, Isaiah Martinez, Devin Gomes and Jeremy Persing. There was a completed pass from Bush to Giannini for another Charger TD. Final score of the game was Chargers 32 – Aztecs 6. The Charger Pee Wee’s gave the crowd hard hitting and action filled football! (more…)
