Chicken Hawks Crush Caribs 40-12 in Football Championship

Dec. 9, 2006 — The Charlotte Amalie High School Chicken Hawks dominated the Central High Caribs on both sides of the ball Saturday night as they claimed the territorial interscholastic football championship 40-12.
The Hawks' freshman quarterback, Ryan Mills, proved his usual dominant self on both offense and defense. He threw for five touchdowns and ran one in for another. With no one keeping stats for the game there is no tally of his final numbers, but he appeared to have well over 200 yards passing and another 75 to 100 yards on the ground. On defense he played cornerback, covering Centrals best wide-out.
Central, on the other hand, showed flashes of good play but not enough to compete with that juggernaut that is CAHS.
The Caribs played well enough to find themselves down only six points at the half at 12-6, but any hopes of their having a good game were dashed in the third quarter when the Hawks put 22 unanswered points on the board for a 34-6 lead entering the fourth quarter. The Hawks would add another TD in the fourth to lead 40-6. With time winding down, the Caribs got a late touchdown with less that a minute to play to make the final score a somewhat more respectable 40-12.
"When we lost our first game of the season 22-0, our feelings were hurt, we were embarrassed, but I know we had the personnel to win," said Hawks Coach Robert Massey. "We just had to go back and make a few adjustments here and there, and I knew we would be fine. We came here tonight prepared, and I knew as long as we did what we practiced we should not lose."
