The Estevan Century 21 Chargers managed their first touchdown of the season on Sunday, but the peewee football club went down to defeat 39-6 against the Weyburn Eagles in their home opener.
The team's lone touchdown came midway through the third quarter when Ethan Pick ran into the end zone on a lineman hand-off.
"We were able to march pretty much the whole field on that one," said Chargers head coach Steve McLellan.
Weyburn led 19-0 at the half.
"We started a little slow," said McLellan. "Our first play of the game was an interception, which is always tough to overcome.
"It's unfortunate, the outcome, but I think it would've been a much different game if we started differently," he added.
The Chargers did step up their game in the second half, being outscored 12-6.
"I think we increased our intensity a bit, got our momentum back and started playing the way we should be playing," said McLellan.
The Chargers are on the road for the long weekend, taking on the Regina Patriots on Monday.
