Chargers Rains on Colome’s Parade, Down Cowboys on Homecoming Night

A rain delay at halftime of one hour and fifteen minutes turned the tide Sully Buttes’ way, as the Chargers–leading 8-6 at the half–came out strong in the second half and defeated the Colome Cowboys 24-6 to push their record to 5-0.

The Cowboys opened with a strong first drive, only to stall at the Chargers 11 yard line, while Sully Buttes could not get into gear. The teams exchanged possessions until the second quarter, where quarterback Landon Hepker found tight end Trever Marshall open in the corner of the endzone, and went ahead 8-0 after the two point conversion. Later on in the second quarter, Colome got a big strike downfield, and had a Eii Vobr to Lane Leighton eight yard pass, but missed the extra point, to make the score 8-6.

A strong storm system dumped torrents of rain, along with wind just before the second half started, and both teams waited the weather out to continue play.

Sully Buttes stopped Colome after an onside kick and went to work. The Charger defense gave Sully Buttes excellent field position all night long, and found ways to disrupt the Cowboy attack. Hepker runs of two yards and one yard, plus both made extra point attempts pushed the score to 24-6 to seal the victory.

The 5-0 Chargers will now host Class 9B top ranked Herreid Selby Area for a homecoming matchup Friday night, while the 2-2 Cowboys will travel to Freeman to face the Freeman/Marion/Freeman Academy Phoenix for their homecoming.
