chargers-remain-1LUNENBURG – The Central Chargers continue to roll through the James River District after another blowout win over Buckingham by a 41-12 margin.

The Chargers kicked off to the Knights to start the game and immediately forced a three and out as Chris Fowler, John McGrath and Tyler Heatwole each had early stops in the game. The Central offense began a march down the field from their own one-yard line, but a fumble near the twenty gave the ball back to Buckingham. The Knights got on the board first with a touchdown run, but Dion Graham made a stop on the two point try to keep the score at 6-0.

The Chargers would once again pick up a few first downs on the next series, but another fumble gave the ball back to Buckingham and gave Knights fans false hope that they might pull off an upset.

The Central defense stepped up with Qwazale Jones, Ben Spencer and Jackson Parsons coming up with big tackles to force a punt. Central had their third turnover of the first quarter on the punt after a Central player touched the ball that was recovered by Buckingham.

The Central defense again forced a three and out to give the offense the ball back. This series, the Chargers offense looked like they had over the past several weeks as the offensive line took control of the game. Malik Foster, Dashawn Moore and Kenan Anunay took turns picking up big yardage. Foster eventually scored from three yards out and a Ben Atkins extra point gave Central the 7-6 lead.

The CHS defense was dominant once again with John McGrath flying up from his safety position to make a tackle for loss on third down. Buckingham punted the ball to the CHS 40-yard line and the Chargers once again pounded the ball down the field. Anunay picked up good blocking by Kester Long and DaQuan Cleaton for a 3-yard touchdown and a 14-6 Central lead.

Central continued to dominate on defense while the offense gave Buckingham a little different look. Malik Foster took the snap at QB and hit Tylik Thomas on a 51-yard touchdown pass to push the Central lead to 21-6 following an Atkins extra point.

Raymond Alexander would lead the defense on the next Buckingham possession as he picked up a tackle and then a sack to force another punt by the Knights. Malik Foster followed the blocks of Jeffery Goodwin and Garrett Williams to daylight on the way to a 48-yard touchdown run and a 28-6 halftime lead for Central.

The Chargers started the second half much like the first as they fumbled on the opening possession, but Ben Spencer had a nice tackle for loss against the Knights offense and Anunay picked off a pass at the 30-yard line to give Central momentum back.

Anunay would pick off his second Buckingham pass later in the third quarter and Central got the offense going again when Dashawn Moore scored behind a block from Parsons to put the Chargers up 35-6.

Anunay had the trifecta in interceptions as he picked off another Buckingham pass midway through the fourth quarter. This set up a 40-yard touchdown run by Foster that gave Central the 41-12 victory.

The Chargers once again dominated on the ground while picking up over 400 yards rushing on the night. Foster had a huge night as he picked up 231 yards on 22 carries with three touchdowns. Foster also had his second game with one pass and one touchdown for over 50 yards.

Dashawn Moore ended the night with 165 yards on 22 carries and touchdown while Anunay had 32 yards on 7 carries and a touchdown.

Defensively, Anunay had a big night with three interceptions. Alexander, Spencer and Fowler had 7 tackles. McGrath, Jones, Parsons and Graham checked in with 5 each.

The Chargers travel to Nottoway on Friday at 7 p.m.
