The Chaparrals are off to a great start this fall by anyone’s’ standards with two consecutive wins.

The Chaparrals’ talent and teamwork was evidently was carried into their second home game on Sept. 7 as they blew out the Illinois Wesleyan Titans, 31-0.

The landslide victory began at the very start of the second quarter after the Chaparrals scored a touchdown, extra-point and successful field goal kick. From that point on to the rest of the game, the Chaparrals seemed comfortable and in control against the Titans.

The defense was able to hinder any efforts of the opposing team to score, and the offense seemed to be  coordinated together in every right way to keep the ball moving on the field. The Chaparrals are proving to be a fearsome rival for any opposing team.

The Chaparrals will need to continue playing this well to beat the nationally ranked Georgia Military College Bulldogs on their homecoming game slated for Sept. 27.
