 Smithson Valley came into House Park as the heavy favorite. The odds didn’t deter the Trojan faithful and the football boys proved true to the Trojan tradition of never quitting.

In the first quarter, Riley McCarty provided a crucial first down by powering through tackles. Then senior quarterback, Trey Lundquist found Jacob Graves for the first points to the game. Alfredo Estrada’s strong foot successfully added the extra point. The Rangers quickly responded returning the kickoff for 6 points.

On defense, Reed St Pierre was busy breaking up passes. The Trojans fought Smithville

Valley’s possession deep into downs multiple times but were unable to thwart the Rangers from scoring. Anderson’s second scoring drive happened with a successful quarterback sneak bringing the ball to the goal line and the offensive line powered the ball in for points.

Halftime entertainment was excellent. The Belles performed an impressive high kick routine and the band unveiled this season’s choreography… a Tango.

Neither team converted in the third quarter. In the fourth quarter, junior quarterback Davis Adams connected with senior receiver, Haden Buckman, for Anderson’s third touchdown. The Trojans defense had a tense short yardage goal line stand led by the encouragement of senior captain, Lucas Vargas. The Ranger drive was ended by an interception by junior defender, Peyton Zachry.

True to the Trojan tradition, the Trojans fought to the finish. Coy Fullmer ran for extended yards with 15 seconds left in the game putting the Trojans in position to score again, but the clock was not our friend.
