St. James Chargers Win SPAL Title

Mark Beasley, Savannah Morning News

St. James 14, Savannah Christian 6 - John Patrick McCarthy caught a 60-yard touchdown pass and running back Ben Wright added a 25-yard scoring run to lead St. James over Savannah Christian.

The win concluded a perfect 8-0 season for the Chargers.

The Chargers went up 8-0 when McCarthy hauled in the scoring pass from Wright, and quarterback Mike Huggins Jr. added the conversion.

The Red Raiders cut the lead to 8-6 in the second quarter when fullback Scott Brannen scored on a 6-yard run. The stiff Chargers' defense then stopped the crucial two-point conversion.
The Chargers added to the lead in the second half when Wright found a seam and rambled 25 yards to the end zone.

The Chargers sealed the victory late in the fourth quarter on a key third-and-9 play. Huggins went 13 yards to pick up the first down. From there, the Chargers ran out the clock.

Other Charger standouts were Connor Beytagh, Andrew McNulty, Patrick McBride, Stuart Harriott, Kyle South, Taylor Jakubsen, Grant Koncul, Andrew Sparks, Andrew Ward, Chris Herold, Zach Park, Patrick Brennen, Reed Cetti, Stephen Buttimer and Nigel Wright.
The Chargers were coached by Jack Beytagh, Mike Huggins Sr., Joe Herb, Wes Worthington and Scott Moore.

Speaks volumes of coaches Beytagh and Herb (a BSS alum). Good news for Seawright Drive too.
