“It was a really great performance from the entire team,” said head coach Jim Pughe. “We held them late and were able to get the ball back. We had a long ride down here, so it’s great to get this win. We’re back to work this week to prepare for Gloucester.”

Mike Tivinis ran in the final Chieftain score from 34 yards out and Dylan Mann ran hard all game.
