After the Blue Tigers took a 7-0 lead five minutes into the first quarter, Trenton's running game would slowly take over the game, with sophomore Colton Neff going off for 196 on 31 carries yards and four touchdowns, in addition to a pair of two-point conversions. Meanwhile, Neff's sophomore backfield mate, Travis Leeper, had 14 carries for 103 yards.

Trenton's defense forced three turnovers. Sophomore Travis Leeper finished the Trenton scoring with a seven-yard scamper in the fourth quarter. Jonathan Lamp connected on two-of-three extra point attempts for THS.

Trenton, now 4-2 on the season, returns to C.F. Russell Stadium next Friday night for a 6 o'clock kickoff against the Illini West Chargers. Lincoln Prep, with the loss, falls to 4-2 on the season as well.

With the win, Trenton improved to 4-2 overall on the season. Trenton still sits in fourth place in the Class 2, District 16 standings, but reeled in the leaders a bit. The Bulldogs are under one single point behind Lathrop and Lawson, second and third in the standings respectively, and just over one and a half points behind district leader LeBlond.

The Bulldogs enter the final third of the season this Friday, facing Illini West at C.F. Russell Stadium in Trenton. The Bulldogs will round out the regular season traveling to Kirksville the following week before hosting Concordia in the finale.

Saturday afternoon's game was broadcast on Hot Country Z 101.7, www.kgozfm.com, and City-Link TV.
