But even with a 14-0 lead, Heritage Hall was far from done with Bethany. The Bronchos got right back into the game on a 71-yard touchdown pass from Ryley Claborn to Gage Diffee made it 14-6, and the Bronchos tied it at 14 in the second quarter.

“That's a great team, and we knew they were going to keep fighting,” Shepard said. “We kept our composure and did what we needed to do.”

And with the offense sputtering at times, the Chargers looked to their defense. And as the group has done all season, it delivered.

Heritage Hall limited Bethany to nine yards in the second half. The Chargers sacked Claborn three times and forced a fumble that Wakefield recovered in the end zone for his second touchdown of the night.

“You could see it in their eyes at halftime,” Bogert said. “Not one of them was down. They were ready. That was an outstanding second half on defense.”

For the game, Heritage Hall had five sacks and caused three turnovers.

Heritage Hall quarterback Cooper Cloud threw for two touchdowns, while Bethany star running back Devin Campbell also had a touchdown.
