The Isle of Wight Academy football team used a perfect passing game and a 41-point first half to blow out host Portsmouth Christian School 47-0 on Friday night.

It was a big turnaround for the Chargers after they gave up 41 first half points in their 54-12 season-opening loss to visiting Atlantic Shores Christian School on Aug. 22.

On Friday, junior quarterback Bryce Casey helped IWA fans forget about the first-week loss by going 7-for-7 passing, resulting in 171 yards and two touchdowns against the Patriots. He also ran for a touchdown.
