Trenton suffered through a first half dominated by the Lexington offense, with the Minutemen taking a 14-0 lead courtesy of a 1 yard TD run by Cooper Lynn with 3:05 to go in the first quarter, and a 5 yard scoring run by Lynn with 9:11 to go in the second. Both extra points were good.

The Bulldogs were able to get an important touchdown on their first play of the ensuing drive, as sophomore halfback Travis Leeper took a trap play 53 yards down the middle of the field to cut the lead to 14-6. Jonathan Lamp hit the extra point. Trenton's defense again showed some struggles against Lexington's attack late in the second quarter, but was able to hold the Minutemen out of the end zone on downs, keeping the score 14-7 at the half.

In the second half, Trenton's defense sparkled while the offense would start to slowly build momentum. The Bulldogs got the all-important "first points of the half" with 5:40 to go in the third quarter, with Colton Neff grinding the ball over the goal line. Tom Johnson had the play-by-play call:

The short plunge was set up by a great running play executed by junior quarterback Dalton Ellis from near midfield:

Tied at 14 headed into the fourth quarter, the teams traded body punches and field position until, Trenton, after losing yards on a series of negative plays and penalties, set up shop third and long from just inside their own 30 yard line:

The extra point by Lamp was missed, but the Bulldog defense was able to hold Lexington in the last two minutes of regulation, with the offense, eager to earn a 13 point win and bonus points in district standings, added an 8 yard touchdown run by Travis Leeper with 33.2 seconds to go. Lamp hit the extra point for the final total.

Trenton, now 2-0 on the season, had 100 yard plus running games from their sophomore backs, with Colton Neff totaling 115 yards and Travis Leeper 107. The Bulldogs stay on the road this week, traveling to Unionville to take on the 1-1 Putnam County Midgets, and their new head coach Dave Cavanah. Kickoff is 7:00 on Friday night on Hot Country Z 101.7, www.kgozfm.com, and City-Link TV.
