   It was the first chance for the Grenada Chargers to go through live contact against someone other than themselves.
   This past weekend, GHS faced longtime foe Columbus in a scrimmage at Mississippi State University’s Davis Wade Stadium. It was just a half of football, but it allowed third-year head coach Ashley Kuhn and his staff a time of evaluation.
   As is the case with most scrimmages, there were some high points and some points that weren’t as good as most would have liked. In the end, GHS came up short losing a 10-6 decision to the Falcons.
   “We got exactly what we wanted out of it,” Kuhn said. “Our guys went out and competed against someone other than themselves,” Kuhn said. “We had some bright points and we had some things that we are going to have to clean up before the first game.”
