There’s no need for panic in Trojan Nation. Euless Trinity has righted the ship and is plowing through District 6-5A again.

Following a 43-7 romp Friday over Irving Nimitz at Pennington Field, the perennial powerhouse Trojans (4-2, 3-0 District 6-5A) have erased all memories of the unfamiliar 0-2 start to the season and have won four straight.

With precision offense and a swarming, physical defense, Trinity rolled to a 34-0 first-half lead and never let the Vikings (2-4, 1-2 District 6-4A) get on track.

Senior quarterback Christian Hammack, who had thrown just six touchdown passes in Trinity’s first five games, lit up the Nimitz defense for four first-half touchdowns.

Raphael Longangu started the scoring with touchdown catches of 14 and 33 yards. Tyler Natee built the lead to 34-0 with a 3-yard TD run and a 32-yard run on a pass that bounced off a teammate.
