Quarterbacks Luke McAloon and Max Dinnhaupt, along with Chase Carlin at running back, led the offense.  Strong line play from Michael Dangler backed up with some hard hitting from Will Agostinelli with support from corner back Andrew Spencer.

Sixth-grade team bowed, 13-0, to Staten Island.

Plainsmen topped the Chatham 7th grade, 25-8.

For Chatham, Jack Coffey led all receivers with multiple catches from quarterback Ryan Lonergan.  Colin Schroeder continues to make acrobatic catches with one standout long reception.  Colin Hart had a numerous long runs from scrimmage and a bandaged-together offensive line did their best to keep the large Staten Island offensive and defensive lines at bay.

 Eighth grade dropped a 36-12 game to the Plainsmen.

Next week, the Chatham Youth Football Cougars are at home on Cougar Field, starting at 1030 a.m. vs. Bloomfield.
