Trigg led 21-7 at halftime, but a few missed connections in the passing game prevented what could have been a wider margin. Jayven Jones scored the first touchdown of the night, but a missed extra point left the door open for Hoptown to take a 7-6 advantage on a Zach Atkins run. Luke McKenzie answered with a scoring run late in the quarter, and Jones added a 20-yard score early in the second quarter.
“Hoptown scored 28 and 20 points in the first two weeks to come back and win those games,” Trigg head coach Coby Lewis said. “We knew they’d do that against us. They’re playing hard.”
Hoptown quarterback Tyler Graham connected with Jordan McGee for a 26-yard score midway through the third quarter, setting the stage for a wild fourth quarter.
