Chillicothe Tops Bulldogs In Middle School Finale
The first battle for the middle school Sugar Bucket belonged to Chillicothe as the Hornets took full advantage of costly Trenton turnovers en route to a 36-6 victory in the final middle school football game of the season for the Bulldogs on Tuesday night.
Trenton fumbled three times and had a botched punt on its first four possessions of the game and the Hornets made the most of the Trenton miscues, scoring all four times to take a commanding lead.
Trenton finally settled down and put a drive together in the second quarter, one that ended with a 30-yard touchdown pass from Mason Owen to Colten Colston. The second half was much more uneventful as Chillicothe held on to take the 36-6 win.
In the celebration that ensued for the victorious Hornets, the Sugar Bucket, being awarded for the first time at the middle school level, was dropped and consequently broken.
A “B” game was held between the two teams, which Chillicothe also won, 30-6. Trenton again struggled turning over the ball, but did score once on a seven-yard touchdown run by Tray Webb.
“In all honesty this was a very difficult way to end this season,” Trenton Head Coach Brandon Boswell said. “I truly believed this team was better than their 3-3 record. I told the kids that I appreciated them and I encouraged them to commit to getting better and doing great things for Trenton football in the future.”
The TMS football team finished the season with a 3-3 record.
