Despite fumbling the ball away not once, not twice, but three times in the game’s first nine minutes, the Gales still rushed for 518 yards — the most ground yards ever gained by a Logan Chieftain football foe — and scored a whopping 57 unanswered points en route to shellacking the Chiefs 57-7 at Fulton Field.
The one-sidedness of the season-opening series again reared its head as the bigger, stronger Gales dominated both sides of the ball… at least when they weren’t giving it away.
“We had fumble problems last year, but it was mostly getting through the line of scrimmage and handoffs. Our fumbles today were at the end of runs,” said Lancaster coach Rob Carpenter. “Logan was well-coached defensively, they were punching and stripping the ball, and we hadn’t really practiced (against) that.”
