The Our Lady of Sacred Heart Chargers football program had broken many records the previous two season under second-year head coach Dan Bradley. This season they are looking to break some more records along the way hoping to make their first appearance at Heinz Field this November. OLSH with a heavy home schedule early this year reel off 46 straight points to beat Sto-Rox 46-6 in each team's first conference game of the season.
The Chargers first test was the storied program of the Sto-Rox Vikings who with new coach LaRoi Johnson is trying to restore the Vikings to the powerhouse of old. Lead by third-year start Eric Wilson things seem to be going well for the Vikings to start the game, scoring on just their second offensive play of the game from scrimmage. An 80 yd screen pass to Vinnie Eggleton to take the lead early 6-0. OLSH offense was coming off a 41 point performance in week zero against Westinghouse but struggled early and throughout the entire first quarter.
The Vikings seemed to have the Chargers on their heels, but could not convert good field position into any offensive momentum. By not capitalizing on the early momentum it gave the Chargers a chance to regroup and reel off 46 straight points. Lead by senior running back Austin Wigley, the Chargers offense and defense turned up the tempo and pressure dictating what was going to happen in the final three quarters. Wigley who is coming off a fibula and tibia injury causing him to miss his entire junior year looked more than excited to be back on the field and quickly showed that coach Bradley's team is going to be a force on the offensive side of the ball this season.
The young Sto-Rox team travels up to Union next Friday, as the Chargers continue their early season home stretch with Northgate at Moon Area High School on Saturday, September 8th. OLSH will have to get through Northgate before the much-anticapted matchup on the road with Rochester the following Friday.
