Josh Anderson stood out in all three phases of the game to lead the Chargers to victory.

Offensively, Anderson racked up 157 yards rushing on the night.  On special teams, he returned a punt 51 yards for a touchdown. On defense, he totaled eight tackles.

Clayton Halbert chipped in with 103 yards rushing and a 2-yard touchdown run.  Auston Wingard added a 33-yard touchdown run for the Chargers in the victory.

Cornerstone improves to 1-3 overall on the season with the victory.

The Chargers look to record two wins in a row as they travel to Bessemer to take on Flint Hill Christian in a non-region game Sept. 24.
