COLLEGE STATION — The Fulshear Chargers were down in the fourth quarter after dropping a 19-point halftime lead to A&M Consolidated, but two late touchdowns saved the Chargers’ season and advanced them to the program’s first regional semifinals.
It was a wild ride for Head Coach Nick Codutti and his confident Chargers as the District 20-5A co-champs ended on top, 50-38.
“These kids instill confidence in themselves and it’s been awesome to see,” Codutti said. “We were losing in the fourth quarter after being up three scores and coming back makes me so proud of these guys.”
The packed house at Consol’s Tiger Stadium was stunned in the cold after watching the Chargers dominate the first half, 36-17.
The Chargers could not have started better as the offense completed an opening touchdown drive that lasted 8:40 to go up 8-0.
The game was tied 15 seconds later as Albert Garcia returned the following kickoff for a touchdown.
Fulshear quarterback Parker Williams and running back Davion Godley dominated the Tiger defense for the remainder of the half.
