Springdale plays its first full season in 1B ranks…
The Springdale Chargers finished their first full season in the 8-man game, and it’s one of the best in the school’s recent history.
Including Hunters’ forfeit, the Chargers finished with seven wins and capped the 2019 season off by posting a 24-22 victory over NE 1B North 2nd place team Cusick.
“I do believe we got better as an eight-man team the more time we were playing the game,” Springdale Coach Mark Edwards said. “You have to spend time on it and we were getting better as the season went on.”
Against Cusick on Nov. 8, the Chargers used ball-control offense, rushed for 185 yards and came up with the victory against Cusick.
The game started with a touchdown run by Austin Paladin (of Valley!) in the first quarter, followed by a three-yard touchdown run by Avery Kitt. More
