Trimble Takes Care of Business Over Federal Hocking< < Back to
The Trimble Tomcats turned in a fine performance against the Federal Hocking Lancers at Glouster Memorial Stadium on Senior Night, winning by the score of 41-8. It was the first time in their last seven games that the Tomcats defense had allowed a touchdown.
Konner Standley took control on the first offensive drive of the game, not different from the offensive philosophy the Tomcats have employed all year. Standley completed several passes and ran several times on the 78-yard drive, which culminated in a 3-yard Jacob Koons touchdown run.
From there, Trimble would score on their next three possessions before punting the ball away for the first time with 1:34 left in the first half.
Trimble would gain 445 yards on the nights, led by Standley’s 13-of-20 passing with one touchdown. He also added 119 yards rushing and two scores on 21 carries. He outgained Fed Hock's 142 total yards of offense on his own.
Federal Hocking would struggle all night at the hands of the Tomcat defense. In the first half, they would find themselves in Trimble territory only once. With the Lancers moving, quarterback Kyle Jackson’s pass would be intercepted by Wyatt Deak.
Trimble’s defense stepped up to the challenge all night, turning in yet another fine performance. However they would give up their first touchdown in seven weeks on a Kyle Jackson 47-yard touchdown pass with 35 seconds left in the game. It is of note, that the ferocious Tomcats defense have allowed a mere 40 points on the entire season.
Federal Hocking had quite the respectable 2012 season, doing better than many pundits expected with a 6-4 record and finished at 5-3 in the TVC-Hocking.
Trimble is looking to carry this momentum into the Division VI playoffs in Region 23.
