Wheaton/Herman-Norcross scored in every quarter on Friday night and defeated the Brandon-Evansville Chargers by the score of 42-0.

The Warriors had 369 yards of total offense with 176 coming on the ground and 193 through the air.

"We played very well defensively against B-E this past Friday," acknowledged Warriors Head Coach James Paul.   "We had close to 10 tackles for loss during the game! The guys executed the game plan very well.  Offensively we made a few more mistakes. We had a few penalties that stalled out drives and did not punch the ball into the end zone well enough in the red zone. But, overall our offense did a good job of getting the job done and finding 1st downs on 3rd and 4th down."

Zach Braaten completed 16-of-27 passes for 193 yards and a pair of touchdowns.  Braaten also led the Warriors with 68 rushing yards on 11 carries.  Clint Determan led the receivers with 69 yards on 5 catches.  Bryant Callenius was in on 9 tackles and also had a sack to lead the defensive effort.

Determan got in the end zone first on the receiving end of a 22 yard pass from Braaten.  The two-point conversion run was successful by Tim Blume to give the Warriors an 8-0 lead after one quarter.  Callenius scored on a fumble return and caught the two point conversion pass from Blume to make it 16-0 at the half.  He then caught an 8 yard TD pass from Braaten in the third and the Warriors had a 22-0 lead after three quarters.  Fourth quarter scores from Brayden Hofer (5 yard run), Zach Braaten (12 yard run) and Marshall Tolifson (3 yard run), along with a pair of extra-point kicks by Determan, made the final score 42-0.

Brandon-Evansville had 139 rushing yards and 12 passing yards for 151 yards of total offense.

Leaders for the Chargers were Tyler Bitzan (20 carries, 108 yards) and Titus Fuller (14 carries, 31 yards, 4 completions, 12 passing yards).Defensive leaders were Bitzan, Logan Haburn and Lucas Fuller with six tackles each.

"Hard fought game against a very physical opponent tonight,” said Chargers Head Coach Tim Pattrin.  “I'm very proud about how our guys battled to the end.  We'll learn from this and get ready for next week."
