GIRARD — It’s been a rough season for the Girard High School football team to this point, but the Trojans came up with a 53-0 win against Southeast on Friday.
Girard held momentum throughout the contest, jumping out to a quick 21-0 lead in the first quarter en route notching their second win of the season.
“It’s always good to get a win,” GHS head coach Neal Philpot said. “The guys played well for the time that they were in. We had turnovers here and there, but we took care of business, played hard and did what we needed to do to get a win.”
The Trojans’ offense was clicking on all cylinders, with Kyler Siebert and Camden McFarland leading the way.
Girard was also making plays on the defensive side, as Cole Cuthbertson scooped up a loose ball in the second quarter and ran into the end zone, before McFarland scored another touchdown to make the score 33-0 at the half.
“We made some mistakes,” SHS head coach Jerrad Hansen said. “We made some mental errors, and committed some turnovers. We weren’t mentally ready and we weren’t blocking where we needed to be. Defensively, I thought we played pretty well, but we have to play a complete game on offense, defense and special teams.”
The Trojans will hit the road to take on Anderson County at 7 p.m. on Friday, while the Lancers will play their second consecutive road game at 7 p.m. on Friday against Riverton.
