The game was a topsy-turvy affair throughout, with both teams trading momentum until the finish.

Trenton opened the scoring midway through the first quarter, with Colton Neff scoring on a four yard run. The extra point kick failed, leaving the score 6-0 after the opening quarter.

Trenton's defense had continuous troubles containing the Trojans "spread" offense, giving up over 200 yards passing on the night, with senior quarterback Luke Wozny doing damage by both air and ground. Wozny tied the game with a two yard run with 7:49 remaining in the first half, only to have Trenton junior Travis Leeper score on a 53 yard jaunt with 2:58 to go, giving the visiting Bulldogs a 12-6 lead. Carrollton, on the strength of a 2 yard Wozny run, and a successful two point conversion, with 38 seconds left in the half, led 14-12 at the break.

Trenton came out of the second half gates on fire, with quarterback Dalton Ellis regaining the lead on an eight yard scamper, ending a 69 yard, 4:20 drive to start the half.

Two plays into Carrollton's next possession, the Bulldog secondary forced a fumble after a completed pass, giving Trenton the ball at the Trojan 31. A one-yard scoring pass to Aaron Anderson, and an Ellis conversion run, gave the 'Dogs a 26-14 lead.

Just when it seemed Carrollton was on the ropes, the Trojans responded with a 28 yard scoring strike from Wozny to Chandler Webb, with a Wozny two-point run making it 26-22 early in the fourth quarter. A key fourth-down stop at the Trenton 44 gave the Trojans great field position on the next drive, finished on an eight-yard Wozny run, and two point conversion run by the senior QB as well.

Trenton would drive the ball inside the Trojan five yard line late in the fourth quarter, only to see the Carrollton defense stiffen and take the ball on downs. Two plays later, a safety gave Trenton life, down 30-28 with still over a minute remaining on the clock. A free kick was returned to midfield, but the Bulldog offense failed to move the football, and lost the ball on downs at the final horn, ending hopes for a come-from-behind win.

Friday night's game was broadcast on Hot Country Z 101.7 and www.kgozfm.com. Trenton, at 0-1 on the young season, plays its home opener next Friday night (August 29th) against the Lexington Minutemen at 7 o'clock.
