Coach Ward reports:
Wow, what a night for Trojan fans. The boys came out pumped up and ready to play putting 26 points on the board in the first quarter. Two of the touchdowns were scored by our defense which was very stingy all night and was led by linebackers Uriel Lopez, Javier Guillen, Marcus Vanderholm, and Jesus Lopez. The game started with a 30 yard pass by QB Kent Ustanik and reception by Paul Toolson who climbed the ladder and made a spectacular game opening catch. The first drive was capped off by a 24 yard TD run by Javier Guillen. Our defense immediately responded when cornerback Gabe Garcia intercepted his first pass and rumbled into the end zone for our second score of the game. The Trojans never looked back after that.
Those two series really set the tone for the rest of the night. Our boys were very physical and played with a high level of intensity. Entiat is a very young team and is in the process of rebuilding. To their credit their boys never gave up all night. I could see their boys giving it their all on every play and that is what Entiat is all about. I couldnít help but remember our current senior group being in their shoes 3 years ago.
In the second half of the game we really made a lot of mental mistakes and were penalized pretty heavily for it. We are going to have to reduce the mental mistakes if we are going to compete against the better teams in our league. We will continue to work hard and prepare for next Fridayís game when we travel to Brewster and play the Bears who are undefeated in league play this year. This should be a very good test for our team.

I would like to give special thanks to all of our fans that came out to support us. I havenít seen that many fans at a Manson football game in many years. The Trojan football team really appreciates all of the support.
