Chargers survive Dragons in section semis

COKATO — The DC Chargers football team overcame numerous miscues to score a game-winning, go-ahead touchdown in the fourth quarter and take a 14-7 victory over Litchfield in their section semifinal game Saturday afternoon.

The Dragons took a 7-6 halftime lead, and held that one-point advantage into the fourth quarter. But the Chargers scored a go-ahead touchdown with 5:30 left in the fourth quarter, and got back-to-back sacks by Logan Christopherson and Hunter Grindeland to turn Litchfield over on downs.

Tate Link had 48 carries for 277 yards, and both touchdowns for DC. The Chargers were hurt by six penalties, and two turnovers, but held Litchfield to just 141 yards of total offense.

DC will now face Watertown-Mayer in the section championship Friday at Buffalo.
