Given what little I listened to the Rocks fought hard for their first ever victory at Montgomery Bell.

 

 

That said they still have quite a bit to work on in regards to consistency. They could be great, right now they are just pretty good.

Trinity had a lot of silly ill-timed penalties. MBA's size and speed really hurt Trinity. They did a nice job stuffing the middle and keeping Dawkins in check. They even tackled him from behind a few times. You never see that.

 

I think the difference from last year to this year is OL play. Still not quite there. Teams have a much better understanding of what Trinity is going to do second time around. Both Tennessee teams seem to know where plays were going. Wright can't sit back and in the pocket this year and wait like last year. He constantly has to be moving.

 

Defense was giving up big pass plays at this time last year. Then they got it together and teams had little success going down field.

 

They have two weeks to prepare for Elder. I expect them to look much more efficient on both sides of the ball by then.

Trinity rallies past Montgomery Bell in second half, 27-23

 

Montgomery Bell Academy battled nationally ranked Trinity down to the wire, but the Big Red couldn’t put the ball in the end zone in the fourth quarter and lost 27-23 at Tommy Owen Stadium Friday night.

“The defense gave us a chance to win, but we just couldn’t put the points on the board in the second half,” said MBA quarterback Dylan Hall, who threw for 297 yards in the loss.

“We knew from the film that their quarterback (Hall) has supreme command of the offense,” said Trinity coach Bob Beatty. “MBA is a solid team. We showed our character in the fourth quarter, though.”

MBA marched downfield for a touchdown on their first possession of the second half to take a 20-10 lead, and the Big Red could smell upset. “We expected to compete,” said Hall, “and in the third quarter we really felt we were going to win.”

Trinity responded immediately when James Quick took a screen pass from Travis Wright, escaped five tacklers on the sideline, reversed his field and cruised to a 78-yard score. He also scored on a 77-yard pass in the first half and had 240 total yards receiving.

Trinity's O-line needs some work as they had an off night but Dawkins still found a way to have a nice night by making some tough runs. Had had 24 carries 104 yards & a 37 yard Td on a slip screen to take the led for good. That's a good night for any RB with a new O-line against that type of competition. Was MBA able to slow Dawkins down? yes. but Hold him in Check? No.

 

Travis Wright also found a way to get it done as he was heavily pressured thru out the game. He made some tough throws in clutch situtions.

Just wondering... when was the last time Trinity was down 10+ points??? VS St. X in title game a few years ago?

 

I believe you're right. When was the last time THS was down 24+ points other than to X? Anyone remember? Did they lose big in 2009 other than to X?
