“That pick-six really won us the game,” head coach Zach Rogel said. “It feels great. To see the work paying off and it’s a relief for me as well. It’s about the program.”

In the first quarter, Jaylen Williams turned a screen pass into a 60-yard touchdown, giving Delta Charter a 6-0 lead.

The middle quarters we dominated by defense.

“(LCCP) did a very good job of containing us,” Rogel said. “I really have to hand it to their defense.”

Poole returned an interception for a touchdown in the third quarter.

Williams led the Storm with 56 rushing yards. Quarterback Lee Lancaster complete five of 26 passes for 31 yards.

“I thought it went well overall; we didn’t give (Lancaster) a whole lot of time,” Rogel said. “(He) just got cleared to play this week.”

Delta Charter (1-0) continues its campaign next week at Cedar Creek.
