The Chargers hadn't played a close game this season and aren't likely to again until late in the year.

“We've been going out pretty early so it was nice to be able to play for four quarters,” Shepard said.

Davis, the top team in Class 2A, doesn't figure to be challenged much during district play either.

Preparing for the Wolves' offense was a difficult task for Heritage Hall.

“We're lucky to have played them enough in the past where we know what they're going to do,” Bogert said. “But we don't want our guys going like they go. The past three or four years we've put (Heritage Hall assistant) Brett (Bogert) at quarterback in practice because he's so quick. Nobody on our team can replicate that.”

Bogert will give his team time to heal this week.

“They're going to be plenty sore this week,” he said. “Both teams will be.”

The Chargers had a 9-0 lead early in the second quarter before Davis ground it out with their long, slow touchdown drive that was exclusively on the ground.

But then, Clifton found his hole.

“We could've gone in deflated at half and instead, we're going in high and then we came out on a high,” Bogert said.
