Trenton has too much offense for ’Jackets
Posted: Tuesday, November 1, 2011 12:02 pm
Trenton found its offense, keeping Greenfield from discovering that elusive first win.
The Golden Tide’s offensive unit scored a season-high five touchdowns, three in the second quarter, to go with one defensive score in a 42-0 win over the Yellowjackets Friday night at Trenton’s Walter Kilzer Stadium.
With the win, Peabody improves to 4-6 overall and will travel to Memphis Booker T. Washington in the first round of the Class 2A State Playoffs. Greenfield, meanwhile, closes the book on an 0-10 season.
Mark Hines, who had seven tackles, put the Tide on the board just past the midway point of the first quarter with a fumble recovery at 5:44. Brett Ferrari hit the first of his five point-after kicks for a 7-0 lead.
Trenton’s best offensive quarter of the season followed as the Golden Tide put up three touchdowns to take a 28-0 halftime advantage.
Tyler Gadlen had touchdown runs of one and 43 yards, sandwiching a three-yard burst by Ty Fields.
The Tide scored twice more in the second half, with quarterback Braxton Baugus involved in both scores.
Kaelan Lester grabbed an 18-yard pass from Baugus in the third quarter, and then Baugus kept for a 35-yard TD run in the fourth period.
Trenton finished with 311 total yards, 262 coming on 39 rushing attempts, while Greenfield was held to just 117 yards. The ’Jackets fumbled eight times, losing four.
Christian McAlister led Greenfield with 79 yards on 10 carries. Published in The WCP 11.1.11
