However, when first quarter ended, Spangler had thrown an interception to Shaun Tkach, the Bobcats were stopped on downs and lost a fumble.

“We watched a lot of film and were ready for this game,” Tkach said. “We knew we were going to have some opportunities to make things happen.”

Spangler, one of the best quarterbacks in the state, was held to 35 yards and threw two interceptions. The Chargers also recovered two fumbles and limited the rushing attack to 85 yards.

With the defense in control, the offense found its footing in the second quarter. Senior quarterback Cooper Cloud connected on touchdowns with Sanders (25 yards) and Shepard (32 yards) to give the Chargers a 14-0 lead at half.

Cloud and Shepard hooked up one more time for a 35-yard score to start a string of three straight drives ending in touchdowns.

It wasn't Sanders' best night. He only rushed for 34 yards on 15 attempts but his presence gave the team that swagger again.

“I feel good. I could be healthier right now, but I'm doing OK,” Sanders said. “I was a little bit nervous about being out here, but I'm ready.”
