The sun glowed orange over the Chieftain’s home field on Friday. Tension filled the air as our young chiefs hit the field. Seventeen young men suited up to play against a full opposing sideline.
The boys came out ready to wash away the doubt that had been cast upon them. In the first half the boys secured their lead at 21 and had only to defend against Maranatha for the second half.
The last few minutes of the games were tense. Muscle cramps were occurring left and right as the boys exuded what little energy they had left to hold back the offense.
With one second left and one yard left our boys held back Maranatha and secured their first victory of the season. 21-16.
Please congratulate the young men the next time you see them!
