Ja’Ron Wilson rushed for two touchdowns, and Tyler Natee passed for a pair of scores as Euless Trinity beat Hurst L.D. Bell 48-3 Thursday night at Pennington Field.
The win was the Trojans’ 17th in a row over the Blue Raiders (0-7, 0-3 District 7-6A). And it was as dominant of a performance as expected in what’s been a lopsided series between the two longtime rivals from the Hurst-Euless-Bedford district.
On the first possession of the game, Trinity sacked Bell quarterback Dominique Lawson twice, forcing a punt. Then the Trojans (7-0, 3-0) scored on their second offensive play, a 62-yard run from Natee, who gashed the middle of the Raiders’ defense.
From there, Wilson added touchdown runs of 12 yards and four yards.
After exchanging turnovers — a Trinity fumble followed by a Lawson interception — the Trojans were held scoreless in the second quarter, despite amassing 294 rushing yards before halftime.
Natee opened up the passing game after the break, hitting Caleb Brockington for a 13-yard touchdown and then Caleb Cumbie for a 4-yard score.
Trinity coach Steve Lineweaver said he was pleased with the win but knows the Trojans must tune up certain areas of their game. They were flagged seven times for 80 yards.
“We’ve got great guys. The effort is outstanding,” Lineweaver said. “We just need a little bit more smart [play]. ”
Natee finished 7-of-9 passing for 109 yards and rushed for 101 yards. Wilson rushed for 120 yards on 15 rushes.
