The North Decatur Chargers fell short on the road against non-conference opponent, Lapel Bulldogs. The Bulldogs struck first on a 22 yard pass from QB Cole Alexander to Tanner Mroz at the 8:54 mark of the first quarter. The Chargers answered back at the 4:14 mark with a 22 yard pass from Alex Stirn to Alex Byrd. This back and forth would continue throughout the game. The teams went into halftime with the Bulldogs up 14-6. The Chargers moved the ball well in the second half but could not find the end zone. After a big Bulldog stand on the goal line, the Charger defense answered immediately forcing a safety. The Charger quick offense then scored in less than a minute, bringing the score to 15-20. The Bulldogs recovered the ensuing onside kick and were then able to kneel out for the victory. The Chargers next face conference opponent Oldenburg Academy.
