The Titans started Friday night’s game by pushing the Skyhawks defense closer and closer to the end zone until Trinity’s Carter Hardee ran the ball into the end zone followed by a two-point conversion by Tre McLeod. By the start of the second quarter, the game looked to be a slow victory for the Titans until Hammond placed two touchdowns, back-to-back, over Trinity. Trinity fought hard to catch back up to the Skyhawks and scored one last touchdown in the first half from a catch by Reggion Bennett. By halftime, the Titans held a 15-14 lead over the Hammond Skyhawks. By the start of the second half, the fate of the game became more of a reality for Trinity.
