Trojans knock off Carrollton 22-14

Topple the No. 5 state ranked team in Class 1A

The Trojans couldn’t throw the ball; Carrollton couldn’t run the ball, but Triopia ran the ball better than Carrollton threw it in a 22-14 win in a “Valley” matchup of two of the better teams in the conference.

Triopia rushed for 264 yards, while Carrollton’s Flowers threw for 195, and the Hawks managed 69 yards rushing giving them a 265-264 edge in total yards. Zach Thompson led the Trojans with 177 yards on 28 carries.

The Big Blue, looking to avenge a loss from last season to the Hawks, got on the board first after a scoreless first quarter. &nbsp;&nbsp;<ahref="http://etypeservices.com/Cass%20County%20Star%20GazetteID497/"><spanstyl... 13px; color: rgb(0, 0, 0);">To view more, please log in or subscribe to the digital edition.</span></a></p>
