Lancers close early, Chargers prevail

Shorecrest dominated both sides of the ball Saturday night, holding Cambridge to 13 yards on the ground while amassing 336 en route to a 26-11 victory.

Jacob Stein, the Chargers' prolific scorer, got Shorecrest on the board first, capping an eight-play drive with a 2-yard plunge in the first quarter.

Korey Sims brought the Lancers within 7-3 with a 35-yard field goal as time expired in the quarter.

Chris Fontana, a running back/linebacker for the Chargers, scored on a 2-yard run to cap an 87-yard drive with 6:52 left in the first half. Stein scored his second TD on a 72-yard run with 3:53 left in the third quarter.

Nate Dameron capped the scoring for the Chargers, barrelling in from 1 yard to finish a 10-play drive with 8:59 left.

A change of quarterbacks brought some respectable passing yardage for Cambridge, but no points until the final play of the game as Sims hit Jason Genninger for an 84-yard touchdown.

"They've been working really hard in practice and I think tonight they really came together," Shorecrest coach Phil Hayford said of his offensive line.

Running back Sam Wells of Shorecrest was injured late in the fourth quarter and was taken from the field via ambulance. The extent of his injury was not known.
