If the goal was to improve, then Chester made an extra touchdown this year. Chester scored in the last quarter by making two touchdowns and a 2 points conversion. Typically, Chester does not score in the first 2 to 3 quarters; this should change. Chester should score earlier in the game to give them a better chance at getting a win. If another goal was not to fight during the game, then Chester was successful. West Chester Henderson was accused of unsportsmanlike conduct during the game but they did donate half the 50/50 chance won to Chester’s Athletics.
