The 6th Grade squad came out strong against the Cougars, moving the ball down the field, before being plagued by a series of turnovers, and they could not seem to get on track after that, ultimately falling 28-0.
The 7th Grade team came out on fire, jumping out to a 16-0 lead in their first two series. Chatham came back to cut the lead in half at 16-8, and it looked like it was going to be a back and forth battle. Summit's high-powered offense was not to be stopped, however, posting 41 points en route to a convincing 41-8 victory.
The 8th Grade lost a hard fought battle to Chatham 32-31, with Summit scoring easily on its first possession, only to see Chatham come right back and tie the game.

Summit dominated the first half, was up as much as 17 points at one time, but Chatham owned the second half, scoring on its last possession of the game with a 1.28 to go to put the Cougars ahead to stay.
Next week the Hilltoppers Youth Football teams travel to Morristown.

Extra Time

It was close to 70 minutes into the match and I had to go to the bathroom.  Badly.

As fans watching the World Cup know too well, bathroom breaks are a serious dilemma, especially for those who don’t have a TV in the loo.  This biological necessity is exasperated by beer, which during World Cup matches also fuels a strong propensity to throw chairs and instigate riots.
