In a game that came about as the result of cancellations from opponents still dealing with Hurricane Harvey’s aftermath, Euless Trinity jumped out to an early lead over Montgomery and didn’t look back in a 39-6 win at Pennington Field. The Trojans scored 23 first-half points while holding the Bears to two field goals. Trinity pitched a second-half shutout.
Trinity was originally scheduled to host Spring Westfield on Friday and Montgomery was supposed to play Aldine Eisenhower but those games were called off due to circumstances surrounding the flooding in the Houston area.
Key players: Trinity running back Courage Keihn ran for 31 yards, including a 9-yard touchdown on the Trojans’ opening drive to put them up 7-0. Trinity running back Ja’Lon Wilson ran 64 yards for a TD in the second quarter and finished with 130 yards on 13 carries. Keanu Hill scored on a 41-yard pass from Laki Lewis and finished with 61 yards on three catches. Trinity running back Katerian Lewis added two second-half scores to put the game away.
Key stat: Trinity, rebounding from an uncharacteristically lopsided 38-7 defeat last week at Tulsa Union, ran for 324 yards and four touchdowns on 47 carries.
Records: Montgomery 0-1, Trinity 1-1.
