IN SHORT 

A high-octane running game fueled the home team as Goodwin rushed for two touchdowns, and added an 85-yard kickoff return for a score in the fourth quarter. Register added two scores, while Dilan Kluge and Carson Lassiter ran for one touchdown apiece.

DODGER OF THE GAME

The defense. It held the Cougars to 150 yards of total offense — including negative two yards of passing — and would've had a shutout if not for a 70-yard touchdown run from Chatham's Dylan Adams in the waning minutes of the fourth quarter. The Dodgers also recovered a fumble to set up a score and added a sack. In addition, the visitors finagled just three first downs in the game.

THEY SAID IT

“I'm proud of them, they came out against a good football team. We wanted to set the tone, we wanted to dominate this game. We knew Chatham was going to play hard, so when you're going against a team that is going to play hard you gotta get after 'em immediately. That's what we did, we put a lot of pressure on them.” —Head coach Chris Kubik

“(The Cougars) don't want to throw the ball, they want to pound the ball. The more points you put up, the tougher it is on them.” —Kubik

Tough loss for Chatham. Maybe they should throw a pep rally to cheer them up; what could go wrong?
