The Natchitoches Central Chiefs are having another tough start to their season going 1-2. Still, they have silenced many critics. Their first two losses the Chiefs have lost by no more than 3 points. A few plays away from a completely different outcome. The chiefs had a chip on their shoulder going into their first game in district.

Airline’s offense capitalized off mistakes made by the offense early. With just 9:10 left in the first, Airline scored its first TD, coming off a 5 yard run. The assuming PAT was good. The Chiefs offense has a tendency of starting out slow. In the first, the Chiefs struggled to successfully move the ball.

Airline forced another 3 and out forcing the chiefs to punt the ball.
