Underwood jumped out to a 28-0 lead in the second quarter against Brandon-Evansville and did not look back. Head coach Tim Pattrin said injuries from earlier games forced him to start some of the team’s younger players against Underwood.

“We played a lot of young guys tonight and we had a couple of young mistakes,” Pattrin said. “They will learn and be better for it.”

The Chargers were only able to rush for a total of 83 yards while passing for 104. Quarterback Tom Bosek completed only two passes, but two were for long touchdowns. McKennen Plaster caught one pass for 61 yards and a touchdown, and Collin Carlson caught a 35-yard pass in the fourth quarter for a touchdown. Skyler Quinn also caught one pass for eight yards.

James Huisman led Brandon-Evansville’s rushing attack with 12 carries for 50 yards.

Quinn led the Chargers with

Brandon-Evansville finished the season with a 3-6 record after the loss on Tuesday. The Chargers jumped out to three early wins before losing the final six games. Many of the losses came against a tough schedule, but injuries played a part in the losing streak at the end of the season.

“We knew that the middle part of our schedule would be very tough,” Pattrin said. “We had a couple of injuries that hurt us and put a lot of young players into key positions.”

Pattrin said the team will work hard in the off-season to come back and play for the same goals they had this season. With only four seniors on the roster, the Chargers will have a larger portion of the roster back in 2014.

“We had lofty expectations for the team and we will work this off-season to reach them next year,” he said.
