The Appoquinimink Jaguars came into Saturday's match up with Charter School of Wilmington standing at 3-4 on the season.
The Jags were coming off a loss, in which they performed well, against powerhouse Middletown. While they were hoping to ride some of that momentum into Saturday's match-up against the Force, things didn't go exactly as planned early on.
Appo would open the scoring with a 23-yard passing strike from Landon Archangelo to wide receiver Codi Elias. However, Charter would respond with two scores of their own.
First, Charter sophomore QB Matt Oliver found WR Jarrett Ross for a 37-yard score. Then, Oliver would throw his second touchdown pass of the day, this time a 10-yard score to Rob Johnston. Oliver found Ross Kamen to complete a two-point conversion, putting the Force up by one score.
After Charter failed to score on their first drive of the second half, Appoquinimink drove down the field to tie the game. Appo QB Shane Anderson found Andre Connally on an 18-yard screen pass for his first of three second-half touchdowns.
Connally would then score on a 65-yard run to give the Jags a 21-14 lead heading into the final stanza.
Charter still had some life, led by strong play by quarterback Matt Oliver.
Oliver threw his third touchdown pass of the day this time a long 50-yard strike to Evan Carson to bring Charter even at 21 apiece.
Appo would go on to tally the final two score of the game, both rushing touchdowns from Connally and a quarterback keeper from Anderson.
The loss puts the Force at 1-7 on the season. Next Saturday Charter will host A.I. du Pont in their last home game of the season.
