Chamberlain 13, Gaither 6

TAMPA — Chamberlain played well enough on both sides of the ball to ruin Gaither's homecoming and leave with a 13-6 victory.

For Chamberlain (1-7, 1-1), the Class 5A, District 5 win ensures the Chiefs won't go winless for the first time since 1966. The loss was especially frustrating for Gaither (1-6, 0-2), which moved the ball well but couldn't score enough.

Of the four times Gaither drove deep into Chiefs territory, it scored one touchdown. Twice quarterback Zach Condon was intercepted; the Cowboys turned the ball over on downs on the other drive.

Chamberlain made the most of its chances, taking a 7-0 lead on Andra Hubbard's 7-yard touchdown run early in the second quarter. Gaither struck back minutes later when a long drive ended with a 1-yard scoring run by Condon.

A 54-yard touchdown run by Chamberlain's Blake Bell with 11:14 left was the difference.
