Sept. 19, 2014 – The Trinity Knights needed some late game heroics to overcome a stout Lancaster Baptist Eagles team but prevailed 37-28 to go 2-1 on the season.
Here is the Signal report…
Late Friday night, it was clear at Lancaster Baptist High that there was one dominating force.
It was Trinity Classical Academy’s Colton Oshiro.
Oshiro was a force on both sides of the ball in the Knights’ 37-28 come-from-behind victory over the Eagles in a game that had an 8:30 p.m. start.
On offense, the senior quarterback was 17-of-26 for 222 yards and a touchdown pass and interception, he ran the ball 12 times for 118 yards and three touchdowns and on defense he made six tackles, two sacks and had a critical fourth-quarter interception.
“He played out of his mind,” said Trinity head coach Les Robinson. “With the defense all he did, but then we’re talking about 340 yards of total offense by himself. His resolve to win and dig out and finish strong, it resonated through the team.”
Trinity needed it.
Three Knights turnovers led to 21 Lancaster Baptist points — all coming in the second half.
Trinity went into halftime leading 8-0, but trailed 28-22 in the fourth quarter.
The Knights tied the score on an Oshiro 3-yard touchdown run, then the quarterback connected with Ryan DeMarois on a two-point conversion to give Trinity a 30-28 lead.
Trinity went ahead for good on an 8-yard touchdown pass from Oshiro to Caden Kulp.
Kulp ran the ball 19 times for 59 yards and caught seven passes for 72 yards.
Trinity’s defense played a major role in the victory and Ian Caddow and DeMarois each made 13 tackles.
After three road games, Trinity finally plays at home next Friday at Saugus High in a 4 p.m. start against Animo Robinson.
It marks the first of three consecutive home games — all against teams that dropped down from 11-man football to 8-man this season.
