Parrish, Trojans ride to another victory

Defeat the Bleckley Royals in blowout, 55-28

(Continued)

QUITMAN —

 On the very next drive, Parrish took off for a 26-yard touchdown run, pushing the Trojans' lead to 49-14.

When the Royals' next drive ended with a fumble recovered by Parrish at his defensive back position, the Trojans opted to add more points to the board.

 Eleven yards away from the end zone, Parrish ran it in once more, making the score 55-14 after another missed extra point.

 Still in the third quarter, Royals quarterback Ross,found the end zone on a sneak, cutting the Trojans' lead to 55-21.

 To start the fourth quarter, the Trojans pulled starters to allow backups playing time, and to ensure that no starters were hurt.

 “We had some fighting going on, some unsportsmanlike conduct penalties were called, and I did not want any of my players to get ejected from the game or hurt. The young guys also deserved to play,” commented Freeman on the decision to pull his starters in a playoff game.

 Sophomore Demontay Jones came into the game as the Trojans quarterback and ran for 11-yards for a first down. The drive eventually stalled however, forcing the Trojans to punt.

 The Trojans second team defense came out for the first time of the day and was burned for a 53-yard run by Royal running back Mario McClendon. The score moved to 55-28 as the game came to an end.

 The Trojans will face the Bowden High Red Devils next week as they move close to a chance to win a state title.
