Trinidad shuts out Campbell for first win
TRINIDAD–The Trinidad Trojans shut down the Campbell Indians Saturday, Oct. 3 during their homecoming night.
The Trinidad defense provided the spark for the offense at the beginning of Saturday night’s contest. A tackle from Colton Clark caused a fumble, which was recovered on the Campbell 30-yard line by Clayton Pierce.
Pierce made a 30-yard touchdown catch later in the first quarter on a pass from Lance Davis as the Trojans took an 8-0 lead with 2:06 remaining in the quarter.
The Trojans’ defense once again stood tall early in the second quarter as a Braydon Dickey interception stopped the Indians’ drive on the Trinidad five-yard line.
Montez Shofner showed off his speed just seconds later as he took off down the field for a 75-yard touchdown run to increase the Trojans lead to 14-0.
Trinidad forced their third turnover of the first half as Clark added an interception to go along with a forced fumble as the Trojans took over on their own 30-yard line.
The Trojans closed out the first half in dramatic fashion as Dickey broke multiple tackles to make his way into the end zone as time expired for a 10-yard touchdown as Trinidad entered halftime with a 22-0 lead over the Indians.
Trinidad would add 24 more points in the second half on their way to a 46-0 shutout victory over the Indians to make their 2020 homecoming a night to remember.
The win was the first for Aaron Colvin in his first year as head coach of the Trojans.
Trinidad takes on the Indians again at home Oct. 10 at 2 p.m.
