The title brings a smile the the faces of the St. Charles community that was ravaged by Hurricane Ida in early September. SCC had finished runner-up to LCA during the last three season.

Offensively, the Comets jumped-out to a 14-0 lead, but LCA fought back to take a 27-24 lead with 9:20 to play in the game.

With 2:26 to play, LCA had a bad snap on a punt. The ball went into the end zone and Kyle Cannon recovered for the game-winning score.
