Delta Charter defeated Tensas Parish 24-6 Friday to improve to 5-1 on the season.

“It wasn’t one of our better games,” said Delta Charter head coach Blake Wheeler. “We missed a lot of tackles and didn’t block particularly well. Tensas has good players and made it tough for us to tackle at times. But a win, no matter how ugly.”

The 5-1 start is the best ever for Delta Charter.

“This is another teaching opportunity for our team,” Wheeler said. “We will learn from the mistakes we made and move on.”

Delta Charter led 16-0 at halftime.

Storm quarterback Juvari Singleton scored twice, while Payten Roberts added a touchdown run.

Singleton finished with 174 rushing yards on 22 attempts, while passing for 17 more.

Roberts had 10 carries for 64 yards. And caught a pass for nine yards.

Tensas scored on a fourth down tipped pass from four yards out from Jamal Coleman to Zyadrain Bass.

“We just couldn’t get any offense going,” said Tensas head coach Quinton Powell. “But the guys played hard. We have to move on from here and get ready to Delhi.”

Davis Cooper finished with nine tackles, while Will Wiley had an interception.
