Chambers Academy takes care of “business trip” at Success Unlimited
Published 10:37 pm Thursday, October 3, 2019
MONTGOMERY — Every time Chambers Academy found itself in the end zone in Thursday night’s 48-12 win at Success Unlimited, there was little to no celebration that was shown, only a handoff to the nearest official and a trip back to the huddle.
“It was a very business-like game,” Chambers Academy head football coach Jason Allen said. “Our seniors led us well and they took control of the game.”
AISA No. 3-ranked Chambers Academy (7-0, 2-0) capitalized on Success Unlimited’s early turnovers and took a 35-0 lead into halftime.
