The mission is complete. In July, the Knights set out to avenge last season’s state championship loss. On Friday night, they did just that. Charlotte Christian won the NCISAA Division 1 State Championship after defeating Providence Day 47-21.

 

Two weeks previous, the Knights played the Chargers in what could only be considered a blowout. Still, no one knew how this matchup would end. It was expected to be a closer game, but their team proved once again that they are just not on our level.

 

The key to winning the game was getting a sizable lead to start off because of the Chargers’ tendency to give up. The score at the first half, 13-7 with touchdowns from senior Justus Woods and junior Josh Eboboko, was unsettling. It wasn’t the margin anyone was hoping for.

 

In the second half, the game turned around as the Knights scored 34 consecutive points. Justus scored two more touchdowns and junior quarterback Garrett Shrader ran the ball into the end zone himself.

 

Not only was the offense playing at the top of their game, the defense also had a stellar performance. Senior Willi Lohoff-Gaida, junior Obi Egbuna and sophomore LJ Brown all intercepted passes; Obi’s interception was returned for a pick 6.

 

Smiles were abundant on the sideline. The mood could only be described as elated and relieved. The fans rushed the field and swarmed the players – jumping, screaming, and congratulating. It was a night worth celebrating.

 

After all, we are the champs of Sardis Road.
