Coming off the huge win against Trinity last week, the Chaminade football team drove west down Highway 40 to face off against the CBHS Cadets for their second straight road game, and it was sure to be a dogfight.

The Red Devils knew the MCC matchup was going to be an uphill fight. Even though CBHS isn’t the football program it once was, their aggressive “marketing” practices have continued to keep the program relevant.

The Cadet’s head coach Scott Pingel runs a West Coast-style offense like that of Sean McVay’s Los Angeles Rams.  Much of their offensive production stems from their senior skill players; Wide Receivers Zach Hahn and Kenneth Hamilton, alongside RB Jordan Clay. With his senior heavy offense, Pingel uses misdirection, RPO fakes and designed QB runs against opposing defenses.

CBHS and Chaminade went back and forth for the first two quarters, as the score was within two points up until the last two minutes of the second quarter.  But after two quick scores before the half, the Cadets took a two-possession lead.

Chaminade couldn’t turn it around and it was all CBHS the remainder of the game. On their senior night, the Cadets came out on top with the score of 49-19.

The loss was a learning process for the Red Devils.

“We needed this,” said senior RB Amar Johnson. Johnson felt that the Red Devil’s needed to be humbled if they want to make a deep playoff run.

Even though Friday’s loss knocked the Red Devils out of the #1 seed of their district, they will still receive a first-round bye due to Webster Groves’ postseason being canceled after a team outbreak of Covid. Chaminade’s first district game will be Friday November 6th against the winner this coming Friday’s game between Ladue and Westminster.
