Trinity Christian

Lions win fourth straight game

Trinity Christian’s defense forced at least six turnovers for the third consecutive game and gave the Lions’ offense enough time to regroup in a 27-7 victory over Piedmont Academy on Friday at home.

Freshman Jared Farlow had a pair of interceptions and senior quarterback Daniel Shoates ran for two scores while throwing a touchdown pass to receiver Glen Whisby as Trinity won its fourth-straight game following a season-opening loss.

At 4-1, the Lions are off to their best start in three seasons of play since joining the Georgia Independent Schools Association while now heading into next week’s bye in preparation of their Region 2-AAA opener against Stratford Academy on Oct. 11.

Trinity stayed undefeated on its new field while continuing a trend of keeping opposing offenses out of the end zone.

“Our defense is playing real well now and [coordinator] J.P [Weaver] has them playing at a high level,” said Lions head coach Chris Hanson. “We still need to clean some things up and work on some fundamentals. But Piedmont came ready to play.”

Both teams ended the first half scoreless before the Lions finally got on the scoreboard in the first two minutes of the second quarter. Both teams then traded touchdowns that kept Trinity ahead 14-7 at halftime before pulling away with 13 points in the final period.

Conner Owen added the Lions’ other touchdown on a run in the victory.
