Tri County head football coach Brett Scheiding felt good with the effort put forth by his team after Friday’s 44-6 home loss to (3-0) Sutton.
“We played one of the top teams in Class C2 and went head-to-head with them for the most part,” Scheiding said.
“Going into the game we worked to take away their running game, as they are a very good team rushing the ball. They did pick up quite a bit of yards through the air, but we knew we were going to give up some yards through the air,” Scheiding remarked.
Tri County started strong on Friday evening scoring the first points of the game midway through the first quarter.
The Trojans marched down field picking up three first downs against the Mustangs on their way to the endzone.
Tri County’s scoring drive was capped off with a five-yard touchdown run by Shane Jiskra off a pitch from quarterback Wyatt Kowalski.
