Sports : Trenton's Season Ends With 4th Straight Loss, 42-7 At Brookfield
Posted by Tom on 2013/11/4 9:20:00 (267 reads) News by the same author

After an early October win in Kansas City gave the Trenton Bulldogs a 4-2 record, hopes were high for continued momentum and the potential of a district game at C.F. Russell Stadium. Unfortunately, that win over Lincoln Prep turned out to be the "high-water mark" for the Bulldogs in 2013.

Brookfield senior J.J. Obongo dominated Trenton's defense in a 42-7 win for the Bulldogs on Friday night, scoring three touchdowns in the first half on passes from Anthony Cupp. BHS led 28-0 at the break, and 36-0 after three quarters.

Trenton sophomore running back Colton Neff battled through a badly sprained ankle that was tweaked twice during the game, managing 47 yards on 10 carries for the visiting Bulldogs, who lost their final four games of the season, ending the campaign at 4-6.

The only score of the game for Trenton came on the first play of the fourth quarter, with senior split end Chris Kurtz grabbing an eight-yard touchdown pass from Dalton Ellis, with Jonathan Lamp adding the extra point.

Sophomore fullback Reed McBroom was solid out of the Brookfield backfield, scoring on a pair of two-yard runs (one in the second quarter and the other early in the third quarter). Brycen Corf finished the scoring for Brookfield with a three-yard touchdown run with 7:23 left to go in regulation.

The victory sends #4 seed Brookfield into a Class 2, District 8 semifinal game at Lawson High School on Wednesday night at 7 o'clock. The Cardinals, in quarterfinal action on Thursday night, beat Carrollton 35-6.

The other semifinal will be a rematch of last year's District 8 championship game, with the Lathrop Mules playing the Leblond Golden Eagles. Unlike last year's game, this year's game (Wednesday night at 7:00) will be played in Lathrop. The Mules, in the district quarterfinals, beat Plattsburg 42-7, while the Golden Eagles demolished Lexington 67-6.

Semifinals are set in Class 3, District 8. Maryville will host St. Pius the Tenth (Kansas City) on Wednesday night, with Cameron hosting Richmond at the same time.

The Class 3, District 6 semifinals will feature Fulton at California and Macon at Centralia.

In first-round eight-man district action from Friday night, West Nodaway beat North Nodaway (District 1) 60-6, in District 2, Nodaway-Holt beat Craig/Fairfax 66-28, in District 3, DeKalb downed Union Star 56-8, while Stewartsville won by forfeit (2-0) over South Holt. In District 4, Northwest-Hughesville outscored Chilhowee 58-30 and Lincoln defeated Norborne 66-28.

Eight-man district semifinals will be played this Friday night (November 8th) at 7 o'clock.
