But Schanbacher wasn't alone. The Dewar running game was stopped in a big way. The Dragons only rushed for 68 yards on 35 carries in the first three quarters before earning some yards on the ground when Cherokee had a huge lead.
Ă˘â‚¬Ĺ“Justin gets a lot of the attention, but we have a lot of guys who have stepped up all season and do their job well,Ă˘â‚¬Âť coach Bryan Schanbacher said.
Cherokee senior Chase Wallace added two touchdowns on the ground as the Chiefs rushed for 321 yards.
Dewar's Micah McGowen scored from 4 yards out on the second play of the game. However, he injured his leg on the next drive, and the offense was never the same. The Dragons end the season at 12-1.
