By Tony Farkas
TRINITY — It was rough, and it was physical, and at one time, the COCISD Trojans were behind, but the tough got going, and the Trojans downed district rival Trinity 61-51 on Feb. 1.
Coldspring was down 23-15 at halftime, a place it has been in some time, according to Head Coach Greg Devers.
“Fifteen points were the fewest points that we had in seven years,” he said. “We were 6 of 31 shooting and 1 of 3 from the free throw line.”
The Trojans rallied in the second half as they outscored the Tigers 46 to 28, including 26 to 11 in the third quarter.
From there, the Trojans were 13 of 27 shooting and 17 of 19 from the free throw line.
Leading scorers were Luke Monroe with 27 points, Chris Harden with 13 points, and Cam Shaw-Rucker with 11 points, 6 steals and 5 rebounds.
K.D. Bookman had a good overall game with 7 points, 7 rebounds, 3 assists and 5 steals.
Meanwhile, the Lady Trojans commanded the first three quarters against the Lady Tigers, staying anywhere from 12 to 20 points ahead.
However, the fourth quarter would see Trinity pull within two to scare the Lady Trojans; fouls and foul shots were what kept the lead firmly in the hands of the Lady Trojans, who won by 6.
The final score was 51-45.
