The Chargers (2-3) won their second game in a row with the victory over Flint Hill.

“We went back to the wing and it’s made us better,” Smith said. “We got back to doing what we do best. We’re trying to get better every week.”

Halbert led the Chargers with 13 tackles. Anderson added 11 tackles. Eric Braun contributed eight tackles.

Hagan Joiner picked off a Flint Hill pass in the victory.
