The Euless Trinity Trojans dominate the Bell Raiders from start to end Thursday night at Choctaw Field in Arlington, Texas. The Trojans used a steady dose of running back Ollie Gordon and a swarming defense to get a 48-0 victory over their district rival.
Gordon, an Oklahoma State verbal commit, scored five touchdowns and rushed for 246 yards on just 18 carries. The early "Overrated" chants from the Bell crowd were quickly silenced, as Gordon scored four first half touchdowns. Gordon didn't get to play last year, so it was really important for the Trojans to get off to a fast start. "It was really important. Last year I didn't play, because I broke my collarbone, but this year I told them to come out and execute."
Execute is exactly what the Trojan offense did, racking up 399 yards of offense. Only 20 yards came through the air. The Trojan offensive line were no match for the Raiders.
The Trojan defense never let the Raiders offense get into a rhythm. They dominated upfront holding the only 94 yard rushing. The secondary along with a strong pass rush only allowed 9 yards passing and caused two interceptions. One interception was taking back for six, as Jacob Schaeffer takes the interception 53-yards for the score.
Trinity (4-1) have a bye week before traveling to face North Crowley. Bell (0-5) has a bye week also, they will face Haltom at home the week after.
