Trion picked up their second victory of the year 21-14 over the home standing Walker Wolverines Friday night. Trion moved to 2-2 in region play and are still in contention for a playoff spot. Trion got on the board first with 1:36 left in the first quarter on a 6 yard touchdown run by senior running back Blake Bethune. Early in the second quarter, Trion would take a 14-0 lead thanks to a 61 yard scoring run by Kingston Lanier. Walker would answer on their next possession to bring the score to 14-7. After missing most of the season with an injury, senior wide receiver Heath Ivester made his return in grand fashion late in the second quarter, scoring on a 65 yard touchdown pass from Corey Bethune to put the Bulldogs up 21-7 at halftime.
Trion would not score again on the night but the defense held their own in the second half to secure the victory. The only scoring in the second half came on a controversial play on Walker’s first possession in the 3rd quarter. It appeared as if the referees had blown their whistle to stop play as soon as the ball was snapped. Walker’s quarterback threw a pass to their running back who raced over 60 yards for a touchdown while most players on both teams were standing still thinking play had been stopped. However, the play stood and Walker was awarded the touchdown.
Trion will travel to Darlington next week to take on the Tigers who defeated Bowdon last night. Bremen also defeated Mount Paran last night which has opened up the region 6A championship
