SENTINEL TRIBUNE Wednesday, September 9, 2009 Page 8 Chargers racked up 496 yards for a 46-20 win liege By Tom Merchant Sentinel Tribune WESTBROOK -- The Chargers started the 2009 sea- son with a big win over E d g e r t o n Ellsworth Thursday night for the home opener. The Chargers out gunned the newly paired Flying Dutchmen with a balanced offense and a stubborn defense. On defense the Chargers held the Dutchmen to 108 yards. "That was a fun ballgame for our kids and a good way to start the season," W-WG co- head coach Carter Ross said after the game. "Our offen- sive line did a great job, and we were able to spread the ball around and get several players involved. We had a nice offensive mix and moved the ball very well." With the stats looking quite lopsided for the Chargers, stats don't always reveal the whole story. In the first quarter EE's Jordan Gunnick returned a pair of kick returns for touch- downs. Gunnick took the opening kickoff 94 yards for the first score of the night. The Chargers took little time countering the score when quarterback Mason Comnick engineered a 73 yard scoring drive tossing a 21 yard ariel to Aaron Theisen and a 51 yard dash by Garett Amundson to knot the score at six a piece. "I thought answering that opening touchdown with a scoring drive of our own was a real confidence-booster for us," W-WG co-head coach Leo Theisen said. "That was a key element for us, and we really played a solid game overall. We played some good football, especially in the sec- ond half." Then the Dutchmen came back with 73 yard scoring drive of their own. The Dutchmen upped the score on a seven yard run by quarter- back Dylan Voge. After a suc- cessful two point conversion the Dutchmen lead 14-6. The Chargei's responded with a 61 yard possession capped by a 3 yard touchdown run by Kyle West. Comnick added the two point conver- sion on a quarterback keeper to knot the score at 14-14. In the second quarter the Chargers upped the ante by scoring a pair of touchdowns. With just under four minutes left in the second quarter, Comnick found Spencer Knott on the sideline and Knot ran it 52 yards for a touchdown. The extra point attempt failed. On the next Dutchmen possession defensive lineman Levi Brummer recovered a fumble for the Chargers at the 21 of the Dutchmen. Comnick took advantage of the great field possession firing a touchdown strike to Aaron Theisen. The two point attempt failed but the Chargers upped their lead to 26-14. Just before the quarter closed Gunnick returned a second touchdown on an 88 yard kickoff return. The score put the Dutchmen within six points as the half came to a close. In the second half the Charger defense dominated the line of scrimmage holding the Dutchmen scoreless the rest of the game. The Chargers were hardly finished for the night.
