The Northgate Flames (2-3, 3-3) hit the road last Friday night, and took a big step toward dispelling the belief that they are not a second half team. The Flames came from behind in the third quarter and played solid defense in the fourth to hold on to a 22-20 win against the Brentwood Spartans (1-3, 2-4).

The Flames began the game on offense with Stephon Adams under center. Northgate orchestrated a 14-play drive from their 30-yard line to the Brentwood 26 before turning it over on downs, and the drive ate up over seven minutes of clock.

Enough was enough last Friday night when the Northgate Flames (1-3, 2-3) decided to turn up the heat and claim their first conference win against the OUr Lady of the Sacred Heart Chargers (0-4, 0-5). The Flames put up 35 unanswered points in the second half to set the Chargers ablaze in a 49-7 victory.

The Flames’ defense set the tone early, and behind the play of Jon Lenoski, Tyler Lenhart and Perry Dorsey, the Chargers were forced to go three-and-out on their first series.

The Avonworth football team entered last Friday's game at Fort Cherry with several key players sidelined with injuries, but that wasn't enough to keep the Antelopes out of the win column.

Quarterback Zach Chandler took total command of the offense, completing 19 of 32 passes for 447 yards, including four touchdowns, as the 'Lopes rolled past the Rangers 28-6.

"Zach is throwing the ball really well," said coach Duke Johncour.

For the second week in a row, the Northgate Flames (0-3, 1-3) jumped out to a commanding first half lead only to be stymied on offense in the second half and have the victory ripped from their grasp.

Northgate lost 23 - 13 last Friday night after the Chartiers-Houston Buccaneers (1-2, 2-2) held the Flames scoreless in the second half. The loss leaves Northgate winless in the Black Hills Conference.

Northgate was on fire last Friday night when they lit up the Vincentian Royals, winning 33-14 in a non-conference match-up at Stone Field in North Park.

Coach T. J. Wiley wanted to build on the second half momentum from the prior week’s North Catholic game, saying, "What we stressed all week was that we started slow and then played a whale of a second half, and we wanted to build on that positive."

Opening the season at home possibly with some early game jitters the Avonworth football team was able to overcome some setbacks as they cruised to a 42-20 conference win over Chartiers-Houston.

"We were able to come out and execute some of the plays we wanted to execute and that was real good," said coach Duke Johncour.

The 'Lopes were led by quarterback Zach Chandler who threw for 325 yards and three TD passes in the first half alone.

"He had a really good half," said Johncour.
