Two touchdowns in the fourth quarter helped propel the Charleston freshmen to a 16-6 win over Mt Zion on Thursday night at Trojan Hill.
After an afternoon of on and off rain, the freshman teams from Charleston and Mt. Zion faced off on a wet and muddy field. Neither team could get very far and left the field scoreless at the half.
Mt. Zion was the first team to score when quarterback Devon Kelley felt pressure from the Charleston defense and ended up running the ball in himself to score Mt. Zion’s only points of the night.
Charleston quarterback Luke Bonnstetter connected with Jacob Roe for a big pass play that set up Charleston to start the fourth quarter from the 7-yard line. Charleston’s Ben Coffey quickly started the fourth quarter by running in a touchdown and two-point conversion to give Charleston an 8-6 lead.
Bonnstetter later connected with Roe again, who this time ran it all the way in for Charleston’s second touchdown. Coffey ran in for another successful two-point conversion to give Charleston the 16-6 win in its final game of the season.
