Chester County and Jackson Christian battled it out the first three quarters for a victory as they scored points back to back. At the end of the third quarter, the game was tied at 28.
However, CCHS was not able to keep it up as they fell behind during the fourth quarter due to JCS using passing plays that CCHS could not keep up with. By the end, JCS ended up gaining 408 passing yards, with a final score of 28-49.
“We knew where we were weak, and we knew where they were going to attack us,” Head Coach Steve Robinson said. “Hats off to them in their game plan.”
CCHS was even ahead at one point during the third quarter after a 1-yard run making it 28-21.
Quarterback Zach Armour (#7), even put up some points with a 51 yard run for a touchdown. Running back Ellis Patterson (#24) scored a massive 212 rushing yards.
Coach Robinson was happy with the improvement that the team had on offense.
“Offensively we moved the ball well. We did a better job blocking…hitting the cutbacks and finding holes,” he said.
His hope is that the offense continues to improve and that the defense finds something that works before the first region game this Friday against South Side.
“We’re trying to find the right niche back there,” he said in reference to the defensive secondary. “We’re trying to find something that works.”
