The Trojans (8-0) took a 13-0 lead into the half, scoring on fourth-and-goal from the eight-yard line when Andy Smith connected with Hunter Hines on a slant on the opening possession of the game and an 85-yard punt return for a score by LaDamion Hunt. Thomas Culwell’s extra point kick after the first touchdown capped the 13-point margin.
In the second half, Bay Springs battled back, capitalizing on a Trojan turnover in the third quarter to get its first touchdown of the game and scoring again in the fourth quarter with an opportunity to take the lead. On both scores, however, Carrollton’s defense was able to negate the two-point conversion attempt.
Bay Springs had one last opportunity late in the fourth quarter, but the Trojan defense held strong and was able to give the ball back to its offense, which ran out the clock for the victory.
