The Trion Bulldogs unofficially kicked off their 2019 season with a 17-7 win over Lafayette in a preseason scrimmage on Thursday night.
Last year the Trion Bulldogs went on the road to Lafayette for a preseason scrimmage and came away with a painful one-sided loss. The Bulldogs would have none of that this year. The Trion Bulldogs removed any unpleasant memories they had of last season’s scrimmage by posting a solid performance against Lafayette and recording a 17-7 victory over the Ramblers.
The Dawgs defense forced Lafayette into a 3 and out on the scrimmage’s 1st possession. Trion would score a touchdown on their first offensive possession to take a 7-0 lead and would never look back. Both squads played their varsity players for the 1st half and gave way to their JV players for the entirety of the 2nd half. At halftime the Bulldogs held a 17-7 lead.
Trion will kickoff their regular season next Friday night at home against Coosa. You can hear the Trion vs Coosa game live on 99.1 FM and AM 1180 as Ben Groce and Jeremy Burke will call the action. The pregame show starts at 7pm with kickoff to follow at 7:30pm.
