|Trinity holds off East Rankin|
Defending Class A champion Trinity Episcopal stepped up in class and came back with an impressive 21-9 win over Class AAA East Rankin Friday in Pelahatchie.
"That was one of the best defenses we've ever gone up against," said Trinity coach David King. "They reminded me a lot of the Jackson Prep teams I used to play against (at ACCS). I didn't think anybody could stop us like that. Fortunately, their offense was not as good and our defense played well. It was a heckuva win."
Trinity senior Givonni Dent got the Saints on the scoreboard in the second quarter with an 8-yard touchdown pass to Tip McKenzie with 1:20 remaining to give the Saints a 6-2 lead.
Kent King scored on a 1-yard run and Dent found McKenzie on the two-point conversion to give Trinity a 14-6 lead with 3:24 left in the third quarter.
Dent completed the Saints' scoring with an interception he returned for 45 yards and a score.
Dent then picked off a Justin Laster pass and returned it 45 yards for a touchdown to give the Saints a 21-2 lead with 3:21 left in the ball game.
Dent completed eight-of-15 passes for 128 yards with no interceptions.
Trinity's defense held East Rankin to minus-16 yards rushing on 19 attempts and forced four turnovers.
Trinity Episcopal hosts Centreville Academy at 7 p.m. Friday.
Centreville is an uncharacteristic 0-2, falling to Oak Forest and Parklane.
"I doubt they have ever been 0-3 before," King said. "They have an outstanding football team and if we block like we did last week against East Rankin, it's going to be a long night for us. It should be a heckuva game."
