Heritage Hall receiver Domonique James had one simple goal heading into Thursday night's game against rival Casady.

Catch everything thrown his way.

The senior did just that, catching five passes for 201 yards and three touchdowns to lead the Chargers to a 30-22 victory over the Cyclones.

“I told (quarterback Connor McGinnis) if we're going deep to throw the ball to Domonique,” said coach Andy Bogert. “I knew he was going to get open. He's got great moves. He's just a guy that we put out there and don't worry about because he's going to get the job done.”

James' three touchdown catches — 91, 57, and 38 yards — all came on deep routes in which he beat man-to-man coverage on the outside.

“It's a good way to go out in my last chance to play Casady,” James said. “Coach Bogert told us coming into the game we had a really good chance to beat them outside and we went out and did it.”

McGinnis also had a big night for Heritage Hall, going 14-for-23 with 307 yards and three touchdowns through the air.

“It took Connor a while to get settled in, but once he did he started throwing it around really well,” Bogert said. “I thought once he got comfortable, and got his reads down, he just took off.”
