COLDSPRING — The first scrimmage for the Trojans on Friday answered a lot of questions and spotlighted a few problems to work on in the coming weeks.
Squaring off against the Lumberton Raiders, which dropped from a 5A school to a 4A division 1 team this year, proved to be a good scrimmage. The Raiders are picked to win their district and showed why.
The first play from scrimmage was a TD pass from the Raiders and found the Trojans looking to fix a few problems in its pass coverage. As the evening wore on, the Trojan defense came alive, but there are still several holes to fix.
Trojans QB Luke Monroe said the team had a good practice this week, and the coaches had the team looking at a lot of game films to help them prepare for the Raiders.
Next week will be another scrimmage that will test the Trojans, as they will face East Chambers in the second scrimmage of the season.
