Game Preview: Cherokee Chiefs VS Millville Thunderbolts

By: Ryan Schumacher

CHEROKEE, N.J. – Though the Cherokee High School Chiefs are having a strong season this year, tonight they kick off against the Millville Thunderbolts, who buried them 32-7 last year. This year is shaping up to be a different story, as Millville comes to the Cherokee’s bowl with a 1-3 record.

Millville’s offense has struggled to get going this year and the Chiefs look to put a stop to both the passing and running game early on. The key to this game will be to score early and control the clock. Cherokee tends to take care of business on the road this year, yet struggled to beat their sister school, Shawnee, at home. Tonight is their chance to right the ship as they make a strong push for the playoffs with the rest of the season being their hardest half.

Looking ahead, Cherokee faces Williamstown at home then will travel to St. Augustine Prep. Defeating Millville at home may give them the momentum they need to beat those two powerhouses.
