The Trojans gave AAAAA's top-ranked, defending state champion Bainbridge Bearcats all they could handle, ultimately coming up short, 27-26, on the road. It was a crushing defeat as, according to The Post Search Light's Powell Cobb, the Trojans scored with 1:28 remaining and were going for the win via a two-point conversion attempt. However, they were called for illegal procedure on the play and instead lined up for an extra point, which missed the mark and brought the score to its final margin.
The Trojans are now 1-2 on the season and it’s unclear how the loss will affect their position in the rankings. Nonetheless, it’s clear the Trojans can compete with the best of the best.
