SEFFNER — Facing unbeaten Jesuit, host Strawberry Crest tried to shake things up by going with a no-huddle offense. The Chargers might have to rethink that strategy.
Freshman Trey Vandergrift passed for 139 yards and scored on a keeper, but threw two interceptions. The latter was returned 20 yards for a touchdown by Bryce Walker, who had both Jesuit picks.
"At the end of the day they have to be set for a second to run a play," Jesuit coach James Harrell said. "We made the adjustment and took care of them."
Jesuit recovered an onside kick and scoring on the opening drive on Patton Chillura's 16-yard touchdown to Travis Johnson.
Trailing 14-0, Strawberry Crest got on the scoreboard with nine seconds left in the first half. Vandergrift's 1-yard plunge finished an eight-play, 71-yard drive set up by Walker's fumble on a punt return.
