It was the last two minutes that mattered.
The Centennial Chargers were hard pressed over almost a full four quarters trying to bridge the gap on a 6-2 deficit to the Moira Trojans.
They had their break with a surprising move by Charger Quarterback Brady Crowe who sauntered the ball within striking distance of the Trojan’s end zone at just over a minute and a half left in the fourth quarter.
Head coach Joe Dicresce, said the day didn’t go how he scripted it, in fact he conceded the nail biting suspense likely caused a few more grey hairs on his head.
The Chargers proceeded to score a touchdown and a subsequent field goal, just 20 seconds later after Kyle Rutter intercepted a Moira pass and nailed another touchdown for Centennial clearing the Chargers for their third consecutive Bay of Quinte Championship with a 16-6 victory.
Dicresce said the Chargers expect to be facing Adam Scott or Crestwood on Thursday for the COSSA finals, teams that he and the Chargers machine have had much difficulty in the past trying to overcome.
The Senior Chargers will be hosting COSSA finals in Belleville at the artificial turf of MA Sills Park at 1 p.m.
