The Girard Trojans fell to the Chanute Blue Comets Thursday night in the last game of the regular season, advancing Chanute to playoff action.

The Trojans got off to a rough start in the first half, with Tucker Johnson throwing an interception in the first quarter, and the Trojan defense allowing 14 unanswered Blue Comet points in the half.

The first Chanute touchdown came from a 20-yard run by Sam Son in the first quarter. Son scored again in the second with a one yard run coming off a 59-yard pass play from Brock Gilmore to Grant McMillan. Son also ran in two other touchdowns earlier in the second, which were called back by penalties.

Girard came back with an explosive offensive game in the third quarter, with senior Matt Perez running in a one-yard touchdown with 3:30 left to play. The trojans had a seven-minute, 16-play drive and ended the third trailing 14-6.

The Blue Comets took over the fourth quarter, with Sam Son once again running in for a 19-yard touchdown within the first few minutes. Chanute gained another touchdown just minutes later thanks to a 47-yard connection from Gilmore to Brandon Bell.
The Trojans allowed two turnovers in the fourth, the first due to a fumble from Johnson. Girardthen turned around and recovered a fumble by Chanute, but eventually lost possession from a turnover on downs.

Girard ends the season 5-4, while Chanute will face Parsons in the playoffs.
