DALLAS — A year later, DeSoto still has too much speed and too many offensive weapons for Euless Trinity to overcome.
The Eagles (3-0) ran up 596 total yards Saturday night, taking a 61-35 win in the final game of a three-game showcase at Kincaide Stadium.
It’s the second year in row that Trinity, off to an 0-2 start for the first time since 2009, has been dominated by DeSoto.
Eagles quarterback Desmon White was masterful, tossing five touchdown passes in the first half, while completing 19 passes for 322 yards. He also ran 15 times for 157 yards to lead five ball carriers.
White got things going right away, opening the game with a nine-play, 73-yard drive capped with a 4-yard touchdown pass to Akile Davis.
That opened the floodgates, as DeSoto got out to a 21-0 lead after scoring twice in an eight-second span.
Jatory Brown scored on a 4-yard run and after Trinity muffed the ensuing kickoff, White found William Jackson over the middle for a 23-yard touchdown catch.
Trinity, which had 479 yards of offense in the game, used a dual quarterback rotation to get into the end zone when back up Deion Guignard engineered a 13-play drive and capped it with a 1-yard touchdown run.
Guignard rushed seven times for 59 yards to go along with his touchdown run and completed two passes for 43 yards. He also caught two passes for 55 yards. Trinity’s starting quarterback, Christian Hammack, completed five passes for 126 yards and a touchdown.
DeSoto put up 33 second-quarter points, which included three more touchdown passes and White running for another. He hit Kevin Thomas for 7- and 23-yard scores to make it 35-7 at the 6:53 mark.
