Tri-County falls at Waco

The Trojans football team suffered another tough loss when they traveled to Waco last Friday. 

 

The first quarter resulted in a bulk of the scoring with Waco taking an early 14-0 lead. Tri-County had its chances early, but a fumble just outside their own end-zone hurt. By the end of the first 12 minutes, Waco lead 35-0. 

 

The second quarter was a much different story. Tri-County failed to get on the scoreboard but limited the damage by holding Waco to one more touchdown.  

 

Waco was stymied by the Trojan defense, only getting a 50-yard field goal in the third quarter.  

 

Tri-County faced an improbable deficit heading into the final quarter, but did score two touchdowns. Brayden Monroe accounted for both, with rushes of 38 and 40 yards.  

 

Waco tacked on one more score between Tri-County's pair, ending the scoring at 53-14. 

There were some positive aspects for the Trojans, including holding the ball for five more minutes than Waco. They also only incurred a loss of 19 yards on four penalties, an improvement from weeks prior.  

 

The one area that hurt the most was in the turnover department, coughing up the ball four times throughout the game. 

 

Cameron Krumm led the Trojan defense with five solo tackles, three of which went for a loss of yards. Monroe also played well defensively, with five solo tackles, two which produced lost yardage.  

 

Tri-County will continue to build off their performance when they take on Melcher-Dallas on Friday.
