Delta Charter quarterback Juvari Singleton scored on a 5-yard run, while Payten Roberts ran in the conversion.
“We didn’t play well at all in the first half, but I think when the guys realized they can play varsity football in the second half, it was much better,” said Delta Charter head coach Blake Wheeler. “We had a couple of turnovers that killed drives, but we moved the ball. Delhi Charter is a good-sized, physical team.”
