It was a tale of two halves on Monday night when the Trenton JV Bulldogs hosted Pembroke Hill at C.F. Russell Stadium. The Raiders took the opening kickoff and marched down the field, scoring just 90 seconds into the first quarter. The two point PAT made it Pembroke Hill 8, Trenton 0 early in the contest.

The Bulldogs fumbled away the football on their first play from scrimmage, and Pembroke's Alex Kittoe scored for the second time on the ensuing drive, this time from 14 yards out, with the Kohl Hollenquest two point run making it 16-0 in favor of the visitors from Kansas City, with 6:41 left in the opening quarter.

On the next Trenton possession, the Bulldogs again fumbled the football, this time on the second play run, however the Trenton defense stiffened to keep the Raiders from scoring again. A Ben Wang touchdown run of four yards came with 5:42 left in the first half, combined with a third Hollenquest PAT run, made it 24-0 Pembroke Hill.

Trenton's comeback started late in the second quarter, as quarterback Dalton Ellis connected on a long pass with Aaron Anderson to get the ball inside the Raider 5 yard line. With 1:41 to go until the break, Bailey Owen scored on a 3 yard touchdown run, with Mason Mounce converting the two point conversion, making it 24-8 Raiders at the break.

Trenton's momentum continued to spike in the second half, with the Bulldogs scoring on the opening possession of the third quarter, this time on a 6 yard touchdown run by Dalton Ellis. The Ellis two point conversion closed THS to within 24-16.

After an "over-one-quarter" period of no scoring and teams battling for field position, Trenton dented the scoreboard with 3:28 left on a Mason Mounce 7 yard scoring run. However, a personal foul penalty after the scoring play gave Trenton the ball for the two-point attempt at the 18 yard line, instead of the 3, and the Bulldogs failed to tie the game.

After a defensive hold by Trenton, the Bulldogs got the football with a chance to win the game, but an interception with 46 seconds left iced the game for Pembroke Hill, who held on for the 24-22 victory.

The Trenton JV football team will travel to Bethany on Monday, October 1st, to play the South Harrison Bulldogs in a 6 o'clock kickoff.

Behind two long touchdown runs by Colton Neff, the Trenton freshman won at Richmond on Monday night by a score of 20-13.

The Bulldogs opened the scoring with a 16 yard scoring strike from Travis Leeper to Wynne Devorss in the second quarter, with the extra point missed by Jonathan Lamp keeping the score 6-0 Trenton.

Richmond tied the game on a scoring run later in the second, only to see Trenton regain the lead late in the quarter on Neff's 34 yard touchdown scamper. Neff's two point conversion run made it 14-7 Bulldogs at the break.

Trenton extended the lead to 20-7 in the third quarter on a 46 yard touchdown run by Neff. Lamp's extra point attempt failed, and while Richmond did score a touchdown in the fourth quarter, the Spartans attempt for two was no good, and Trenton's freshmen held on for the 20-13 road win.

The Trenton 9th graders will play at Lawson High School this coming Monday night, October 1st, at 5 o'clock.
