Chargers come up short in debut at Ferris State.

Every new College Football season is an adventure and for the #18 Hillsdale Chargers, Friday night's 20-17 loss at Ferris State was an adventure, and an ugly one at that.

The Bulldogs took a 7-0 lead when quarterback Tom Schneider capped the opening drive with a 2 yard touchdown run.

Hillsdale began to find its rhythm in the second quarter with a 1 yard plunge from Cam White. The Colin McGreevy extra point was good and things would remain 14-14 until 1:56 of the first half when Joe Glendening took an option pitch from quarterback Anthony Mifsud.

Mifsud looked like he was a seasoned veteran on that scoring drive, converting two big 3rd down conversions to Cam White.

The momentum continued after the half as Hillsdale drove deep into Ferris territory and came away with a McGreevy fieldgoal from 20 yards out.

That would be it from Mifsud though as he missed most of the 2nd half with a hamstring injury.

Ferris stayed in the game and its running game would be the difference. Bulldog back Skylar Stoker would get two more scores tearing up a Hillsdale defense that yielded 286 yards on the ground.

Glendening would finish with 153 yards on 29 carries. Mifsud would finish 15/20 for 144 yards. Matt Bryan played most of the second half and would go 5 of 10 for 22 yards and a pick.

We all knew it would a re-building year in Hillsdale, but most would have picked the Chargers over Ferris tonight.

Hillsdale hosts GVSU next Saturday night at 7:00.
