TROY — The Troy freshmen football team played what was probably ikts most dominant game to date and completely overwhelmed the Sidney Yellow Jackets by the score of 49-6 at Ferguson Field last Saturday.
Troy’s offense was so effective moving the ball that it did not have to punt even once during the game. Good blocking and great running by several of Troy’s players allowed the young Trojan offense to move the ball quickly down the field and score. The only things which prevented Troy from scoring on all their offensive possessions were a fumble and the end of the first half.
On the defensive side of the ball, Sidney was limited all afternoon with the Trojan defensive players often in their backfield causing chaos. The defense intercepted two Yellow Jacket passes and recovered a fumble.
Numerous long runs and great plays put smiles on the faces of the Trojan crowd, but a couple highlights of the game were a beautiful 28-yd pass from quarterback Jacob Adams to wide-open tight end Spencer Klopfeinstein for a touchdown in the second quarter and
A 73-yd kickoff return for a touchdown by Jayden Culp-Bishop opened the second half.
The win improved Troy’s record to 5-2. The freshmen travel to Vandalia to take on Butler on Saturday.
