CLEVELAND — The Tarkington Longhorns never had a clue on how to handle the fast-acting Coldspring Trojans, and were held scoreless on Friday
The Trojans posted a 51-0 win over Tarkington.
The Trojans scored early and often. With just 9:45 on the clock in the first quarter, Eddie Brown rolled off-tackle for the first score of the night. The two-point attempt failed so the early score was just 6-0.
Later on in the first quarter, with just 2:43 left on the clock, the Trojans pushed another TD and this time the two-point attempt was successful, sending the score to 14-0.
Early in the second quarter the Trojans posted yet another TD, putting the score at 21-0. Coldspring scored twice more to send the teams into halftime with the Trojans leading 33-0.
The second half was more of the same, leading to the final score of 51-0. Coldspring put up 423 rushing yards and 439 total yards on offense.
Leading rushers for the night are Eddie Brown, with 134 yards on 7 carries and 2 TDs; Easton Dean, 75 yards on 9 carries and 2 TDs; and Noah Vercher, 81 yards on 4 carries and 1 TD.
Other notable rushers were Luke Monroe, Andy Tyson, Jaden Sparks and Max Irving.
In the air, quarterback Luke Monroe went 1-of-2 for 16 yards
Next week is the district’s bye week, after which district play will start against Trinity.
