It was a tough assignment for Tri County facing last years Class C-2 state-runner-up, Sutton on its home field Aug. 30 in the Trojans season-opener.
Sutton finished the 2012 season with a record of 12-1, losing the Class C-2 title game to Aquinas Catholic.
The Trojans came up short on the scoreboard losing 52-19 to the Mustangs.
It was a learning experience for our young players on Friday night. We saw some positive things for sure and saw some underclassmen come in and make some plays, but we didnt play good assignment football and gave up way too many big plays, Trojans coach Brett Scheiding said.
Things looked promising early, but due to some regular missed assignments we kept coming up short on both sides of the ball. We expected some growing pains along the way and played a very quality opponent in Sutton, Scheiding said.
Rushing touchdowns for the Trojans were scored by Wyatt Kowalski, Colby Ensz and Sam Schmidt.
