TMS Football Recap - September 30 @ Axtell
The Troy Middle School Trojans football team traveled to Axtell on Thursday, September 30th, to battle the Eagles.
The offense set the tone early, producing a five-minute drive on its first possession. Although it faltered in the second quarter, the offense also came out firing after half, scoring thirty-four points total. Kaston Jasper (QB) and Sawyer Ashburn (WR) connected on a Tight End seam pass in the second half that saw Jasper place the ball perfectly over a defender while Ashburn leaped over said defender.
However, similar to the rest of the season thus far, the defense was the catalyst for the Trojans, allowing only fourteen points. Aiden Rather (DL), in his first action of the season after returning from injury, and Marcus McKittrick (DL) were animals in the middle, while Caden Rosenberger (LB) did a good job open-field tackling.
The offense is averaging thirty-three points a game, while the defense is allowing only seven points a game.
The Trojans’ 32-14 victory over the Eagles improves Troy’s record to 5-0. Their next game is at home against the Frankfort Wildcats on Oct. 14.
