The Trojans scored on three of their first four possessions to take control of the game early. George Hlavac put the Trojans on the board first, hauling in a 17-yard touchdown pass from Vincent Gerbasio. Devin Yeomans intercepted a pass on the Bulldogs next possession, setting up the Trojans with excellent field position. JT Siggins capped a seven-play, 37 yard drive with a 13-yard touchdown run early in the second quarter. Hlavac converted the point after with a diving catch in the corner of the end zone. The Trojans' final score came on a 24-yard touchdown pass from Harper Puckett to Bryan Bertsch.

The South Parkland 95s faced a tough LCYA team this past weekend, but were able to pull out a victory to end the regular season 6-1-1 and finish first in the American Division and second in the league overall.
Offensively, the rushing yardage gained by Jordan Lewis and Jacob Ortman in the first quarter set up the Trojan's first touchdown by Blake Barthol.
LCYA scored in the third quarter on a deep pass to tie the game. Both defenses stifled offensive efforts in the fourth quarter and sent the game into overtime.
In overtime, the Trojans defense, led by Ortman, kept LCYA out of the end zone. Ortman then capped a stellar performance scoring the winning touchdown in overtime to give the Trojans a 12-6 victory.
