The ELCA Chargers come into this week looking to remain in contention for another state title.

There is a time when things begin to become clear but the road for Eagle's Landing Christian Academy was made a bit clearer after the team topped Athens Academy a week ago.

But the Chargers may be the underdog this week considering Prince Avenue potentially found their defensive weaknesses. Add in the fact the Holy Innocents has topped many of their teams by more than 21 points in each round.

The Chargers escaped Prince Avenue two weeks ago and then downed Athens Academy easily. Add in the fact that this is a rematch of earlier this season where both teams went into overtime and Holy Innocents won 42-41, the Chargers should remember their previous loss.

In the loss to Holy Innocents early in the season, Keaton Mitchell was limited to 195 rushing yards while Gabe Wright only had 190 passing yards.

This game will be played once more on the road with the Chargers looking for another state title game on the horizon
