Fitzgerald shines in defeat


Bloomington 35, Centennial 26

BLOOMINGTON — Jimmy Fitzgerald had three touchdown passes among his 356 yards in completions, but the Chargers came up short on the road.

Fitzgerald got Centennial on the board first with a 75-yard pass to Dominic Stampley, but the Purple Raiders regrouped and built a 35-12 lead before the Chargers reached the end zone twice more.

Stampley had 167 receiving yards on six catches. Austin was the top Centennial rusher with 63 yards on 18 carries.

Fitzgerald did not throw an interception in his 48 attempts, and completed 30.
