No. 8 TC takes out Sheridan

Trojans will ride 10-game winning streak into sectional final.


Howell had one of his best performances of the year. He mingled the running games of Kelley, Cody Colbert and Dillon Smith that produced 186 yards and then made six pass completions account for 117 more yards and four touchdowns.

The two rivals battled to a scoreless tie in the first period, but the Trojans went 45 yards in six plays early in the second period, Howell hitting Bryce Dowell for a 25-yard payoff. TC made it a 14-0 command at halftime when Howell hit Seth Blunck for a 16-yard touchdown, and a Howell fling to Kelley added the two-point conversion.

Sheridan managed just three first downs in the first half; had just 47 yards rushing in 23 carries and missed its only two pass attempts.

Hoover gave Sheridan a momentary lift with that 64-yard TD jaunt to open the second half. But thereafter the Blackhawks fought a losing cause, seven penalties and two fumbles adding to their dilemma.

The Trojans went about the business of putting Sheridan down for keeps when Howell hit Colten Leininger for a 12-yard touchdown pass and then upped the spread to 28-7 with another Howell pitch to Dowell for 25 yards. Kelley scored TC’s final touchdown with a one-yard bolt with 3:09 left in the contest.

A pleased Gilbert further commented: “Nobody has ever defeated Sheridan twice in the same year. But we did because we played as a team and everybody contributed. Howell had a great game, but Leininger, Dowell, Jade Pickett and Blunck did a great job defensively.”

The Trojans have now won 10 straight games which is a school record, and Howell nabbed his eighth pass interception which is another Trojan record.
