EC  3  27  7  0

Edited recap from Bryce Kendrick: Friday’s first quarter of football was anything but crisp for East Central’s offense, but the Trojans got back in sync and defeated host Franklni County 37-8.

While there were some missed assignments by the Trojan offense, credit a fired up and determined Wildcat defensive unit which held the Trojans to only a Sophie Browndyke 37-yard field goal in the first quarter.  EC’s starting field position on its first two drives were the Franklin County 17 and 30-yard lines.

The Widcats struggled to move the ball against a stout Trojan defense as FC crossed the 50 only twice in the first half.  Two Franklin County drives over the first 24 minutes ended with an interception- one by Sam Ringer and one by Jack Rinear.  For Rinear, it was his second pick six of the season.

Meanwhile, The Trojan offense started to click and posted a 30-0 score at halftime.

East Central’s first touchdown of the night spanned about 4 minutes, 20 seconds and covered 80 yards on 11 plays.  Trae Ohmer capped it with a 20-yard run.  Browndyke’s kick after made it 10-0 Trojans with 9:39 showing in the second quarter.

The interception return for a TD by Rinear and Browndyke boot bumped the lead to 17-0 about 20 seconds later.

With 4:55 left in the half, it was the Ryan Brotherton drive. After he recorded runs of 27 and 21 yards plus a 9-yard recption down to the 1-yard line, Brotherton was rewarded with the TD plunge on the next snap.  The kick was good and it was now 24-0.

The EC D forced a three-and-out then the EC O scored once more before intermission, on a Grant Ernst 4-yard rush with 1:45 showing.  The point after try missed.

Rinear then intercepted his second Wildcat pass of the half to effecitvely bring the half to a close with East Central comfortably in front 30-0.

Scoring was minimal in the second half.  East Central scored on a short, 28-yard drive which was finished on a 2-yard run by Cole Burton.  Browndyke kicked her final PAT of the night as the St. Leon lads now led 37-0 with 1:53 left in the third quarter.

Franklin County did not end the night empty handed as the Wildcats scored with 1:52 to go.  Quarterback Brady Morehead hit Kristian Prows on an 11-yard TD pass.  Andrew Merritt ran home the two-point conversion run.

The Trojans 37-8 victory moves their overall record to 3-1 and their EIAC (large school) record to 1-0.  The Wildcats fall to 3-1 overall and 1-1 in the conference.
