Bears Remain Perfect With Big Win Over Woodlawn

On Halloween night at Memorial Stadium, the CHS football team came up with mostly treats in a 56-20 victory over Woodlawn. The Bears racked up over 400 yards of total offense and scored two defensive touchdowns despite being without some key players. Head coach Gabe Feritta and the Bears are now 9-0 on the season.

“I’m extremely pleased that we had some guys step up tonight and play well,” coach Fertitta said. “It speaks to the depth of our team, and I’m very proud of where we are right now.”

Early in the game, seniors Jackson Thomas and Braelen Morgan provided a spark. Thomas connected with Morgan on two scoring passes to give the Bears the early lead. Thomas passed for 171 yards and was responsible for four scores, including an 8-yard pass to Tre Benson and a 1-yard run, in just the first half. Senior Patrick Delatte added an interception return for a touchdown that gave CHS a 35-12 halftime lead.

The Bears scored three more times in the second half. Chase Grey and Jackson Guest found the end zone for the offense and Connor Stewart provided the defense’s second interception return for a touchdown.

Next Friday, CHS will try to remain undefeated as they travel to district rival Dutchtown. The Griffins are 8-1 on the season. A win will secure the 5-5A district title for the Bears.
