Trimble Sprints Past Wahama

Another night, another big performance from Justice Jenkins.

But what else is new?

Jenkins piled on 279 yards on 29 carries, scoring five times during Trimble’s (4-1, 4-0) 46-14 blowout win against Wahama (2-3, 1-3).

The Tomcats came out of the gates quickly, scoring twice before a wacky Wahama response. White Falcon wide receiver Bryton Gate came a few yards away from a 42-yard touchdown score before he fumbled the ball into the end zone. Fortunately for him, a teammate jumped on the ball to secure the score.

With the exception of that play, the passing game was a non-factor in some very sloppy conditions, making the rushing game all the more important. Wahama’s Phillip Hoffman finished 10-of-24 through the air for 136 yards, but a slick football accounted for drops on many catchable passes.

That kind of game plays into Trimble’s wheelhouse and the Tomcats took advantage, accumulating a 33-8 lead before halftime.

Trimble will meet Southern (3-3) next week while Wahama will have a legetmiate chance against a struggling Eastern (2-4) team next Friday. Federal Hocking. Wahama has a good chance to rebound from this loss when they take on a subpar Eastern team on the road next Friday.
