Around the end: Chilton Christian’s Chris Lassinger rusn for yardage.

Chilton Christian Academy fell to the Marion Academy Panthers Friday night at home, ending a six-game winning streak.

The final score was 53-38.

Patriots head coach Todd Stephens said the loss will help his players prepare for their playoff game next week, which will determine who goes on to the state championship.

“Losses aren’t always bad,” Stephens said. “It was a good reality check. I think we just overlooked this game.”

Stephens commended the Panthers for their work on the field as well.

“Hats off to that team,” Stephens said. “They played hard, helped us see what we had to work on.”

Junior Chris Lassinger finished with 138 yards and three touchdowns.

Senior Will Hamby passed for 100 yards and had three interceptions, two of which were returned for touchdowns.

Sophomore Carl Mitchell had two touchdowns, a 20-yard reception and a fumble recovery.

Freshman Kevin Kemp secured a 52-yard touchdown reception.
