Trimble Drops Two In A Row For The First Time Since 2011; Fort Frye Extends Historic Win Streak< < Back to
GLOUSTER, Ohio (WOUB) – The matchup between the Trimble Tomcats and the Fort Frye Cadets was the first meeting between these two teams in this millennium. The Tomcats are looking to bounce back from their first lost this season to John Marshall, while the Cadets are set to continue their perfect season after their win against Warren.
The Cadets begin the game striking early as Caleb Riggs blocks Trimble’s first drive punt attempt, giving Fort Frye a great field position. Fort Frye would use that momentum for a 20-yard TD run for Ethan Duskey, putting the score to 7-0 Fort Frye.
Fort Frye would continue to put the pain on the Tomcats as Ian Ellis leads multiple passes to leading to another Cadets touchdown.
Trimble wouldn’t back down that eastly however, as Tabor Lackey would run into the end zone for a quick three-yard touchdown run. This would end the eventful 1st quarter with Fort Frye leading 15-7.
The second quarter continued with more action on each side. The Fort Frye Cadets would continue to put on points as they would score two more touchdowns by Ellis and Austin Powell, but Trimble wouldn’t be put down too easy. Running back Bryce Downs would run for a 13-yard TD to keep Trimble in contention at halftime, 30-13 Cadets.
The Cadets would continue to pound points on the board going into the second half of the game. After a strong run by Maeson Long, Ellis would go to the air to Braxton Brown for a 51-yard TD. Maeson Long wouldn’t be done getting open space as Long would run for a 60-yard touchdown as the Cadets would go on to win 45-13.
Fort Frye’s rush-heavy offense was the main factor for the Cadets success throughout the game. Maeson Long would rush for 159 yards on 11 carries and one TD proving to be a huge factor for the game. Ian Ellis would end up having 3 touchdowns — 2 rushing and 1 through the air. Braxton Brown would prove to be an effective receiver recording 78 yards on 3 catches and 1 touchdown.
Trimble’s offense would struggle all night, converting only 3 of 13 on third down. The Tomcats would turnover the ball on downs three times.
The Fort Frye Cadets will continue to improve their 39-game regular season win streak as they will take on Lima Central Catholic at London, Ohio for a neutral site location game. The Trimble Tomcats will try to recover from this unusual losing stretch as they take on the Eastern Eagles.
