Chargers Drop Opener 29-21

The 2005 Charger season got off to a disappointing start for the Hillsdale faithful.

Trailing 23-7 at the half, Chad Gurica brought the Chargers closer with a spectacular 95 yard touchdown return of the second half kickoff.

The Chargers drew within 2 at 23-21 to end the 3rd quarter when Aaron Scholl found Chris Clay for the 19 yard TD before Indy scored to put the Greyhounds up 29-21.

Andy Dione had a big sack in the 4th quarter and Gurica used a 40 yard punt return to get Scholl one more shot with 2:03 left. All hope was shot though 3 plays later when Scholl was intercepted allowing Indy to run out the clock.

The Chargers mustered just 32 yards rushing. Scholl was 8 of 14, 2 TD, 2 Interceptions, 112 yards. Hillsdale possessed the ball just 19 minutes. The Charger defense allowed 186 yards rushing and 257 yards passing for 443 total yards.

Hillsdale travels to Findlay next Saturday.
