Heritage Hall beats rival Casady

Just 43 seconds later, Domonique James intercepted a Cook pass and returned it 52 yards for a touchdown and what had been a hard-fought, tight ballgame for 3½ quarters was suddenly lopsided.

“We decided we wanted to come after them. We didn't want to give them a chance to put it up,” Bogert said. “They've got some pretty good receivers. We wanted to pressure the quarterback and make him uneasy and I think we did that.”

Cook said the Cyclones played well for three quarters, but being one-dimensional caught up with them.

“You can't rely on passing the whole game,” he said. “We got to find a run game. They were getting pressure up the middle and we couldn't do much. Their linebackers are fast and they would come right off the edge it seemed like they would (on me) in no time.”

Knowles said Thursday night's victory proves the cupboard isn't bare at Heritage Hall.

“A lot of people thought we weren't going to be the team we were without Sterling and Barry, but we got a lot of heart,” Knowles said.

The Chargers now face a brutal three-week stretch of games where they play Clinton, Davis and Kingfisher.

“The caliber of competition is going to go up,” Bogert said. “We just got to be ready. If we can stay healthy through those games, we are looking forward to the latter part of the year and getting on a roll.”
