Chesterfield— The Chesterfield Golden Rams went into the final game of the season hoping to squeeze into the playoffs but a loss to Lewisville brought the season to a close.

The Golden Rams ended with a 3-7 record and a 1-5 in the region.

Chesterfield Head Coach Mike Mains, despite the disappointing end to the season, was upbeat about his team.

“I was pleased with the effort of our play,” he said. “Our defense played very well all season and was the backbone of our team. Our offense got better and started to score more points. Our special teams were pretty solid all year. We eliminated giving up big plays and made some of our own in special teams the last couple weeks.

“On offense we started running the ball much better. We didn’t break big runs, but we consistently were getting 5-7 yards per carry which is much better than what it was at the beginning of the year. On defense, our defensive line was playing really strong. They were stopping the run and making big plays. On special teams we were consistent in the punt game and were real solid on field goals inside 35 yards.”

Going into the last game of the season, Mains was hoping to see improvement.

“I'd like to see us improve upon our big plays. We need to generate some more big plays on offense and we have to eliminate giving them up on defense. On Special Teams we've been hurt by a couple big returns, we have to eliminate these and find a way to create a couple of our own.”

 Guys that were playing well on defense were Josh Sellers (DL), Jalen Thompson (DB} and Tymarion Melton (DL). On Offense, it was James McBride (RB), Colby Smith (OL), Zane Huggins (OL) and Kevin Diggs (QB/WR).
