|Trinity evens record at 2-2|
Trinity evened its record at 2-2 as the Saints defeated Silliman Institute 27-14 Friday in Clinton.
The win came five days after Trinity picked up its first win, a 41-20 pasting of Bowling Green that was postponed because of Hurricane Isaac.
"I am very proud of our guys for what they accomplished in a matter of days," said Trinity coach Josh Loy. "They will never forget this week as long as they live. That was tough for 19 football players to play two games on the road in five days, but they showed me a lot."
Tanner Cage scored Trinity's first touchdown on a 6-yard run and added a 12-yard run later in the first quarter.
Trinity led 14-7 in the third quarter as Demarcus Fleming scored on a 5-yard run. Fleming finished the scoring with a 20-yard run.
Peyton Young recovered a fumble for Trinity, while Jared Hedrick picked off a pass.
"We're seeing the expectations we had for them and I'm very pleased with how they have come together."
Trinity hosts River Oaks Friday.
The Mustangs are 2-2, including a loss to triple-A teams Jackson Academy and Washington.
"River Oaks is extremely well coached and they have a lot of talent," Loy said, "It's a big challenge for us."
