COKATO – The DC Chargers scored a late touchdown to stop a 19-0 Annandale run, and held on for a 29-26 victory over the Cardinals Friday night in the team’s first home game of the season.
After falling behind 7-0 in the first quarter, DC rattled off three straight touchdowns in the second quarter, including an 11-yard hookup from Paul Raisanen to Collin Krick, and two Blake Johnson TD runs.
However, Annandale scored a late first-half touchdown to pull to within 21-14, and scored the first two TDs of the second half to take a 26-21 lead.
But Johnson scored his third TD of the game with 3:23 left, and Kaden Schmidt had a big interception on the ensuing Annandale drive to help secure the Charger victory.

DC is now 2-0 on the season. Next Friday, they will travel to Litchfield, who is also 2-0 on the year.
