Scores and Photos of Friday night high school football - Sept. 18
Less than 100 feet away from the Signal Mountain field where his Chattanooga Christian football team had posted the program's first-ever victory over the Eagles, coach Rob Spence asked his players to take a knee and pause to reflect on a historic moment.
Friday night, Spence and the Chargers were giving thanks for more than a well-executed offensive and defensive game plan that had powered a 24-7 Region 3-3A triumph. Signal Mountain had dominated CCS so thoroughly in the past that the continuously running clock had been invoked during every contest the two teams played.
Before offering the postgame prayer, Spence applauded his team's commitment to their collective belief that the Chargers could go on the road and play the type of game that could register a signature victory.
