Again Chester was close at halftime, and again Chester couldn't score in the second half and fell 21-12 to the Haverford Ford. Chester falls to 0-2 while Haverford improves to 1-1. Two costly fumbles doomed Chester on offense and blown coverage assignments hurt the defense.
On the positive side the offense did produce over 200 yards rushing (Ed Nelson, Jr. 96 yards). Rushing touchdowns by Jaquan Flood (6 yd. run) and Arlo Lee, Jr. (11 yd. run) completed the scoring for the Clippers. D'Andre Dill had 2 sacks and 3 tackles for loss. Also Rashee Alexander had an interception and Jihad Brown and Amaru Muhammad recovered fumbles for the defense.
Chester will be back in action this Saturday September 19th for their home opener against Father Judge from the Philadelphia Catholic League.
