The Trojans had another tough week getting the offense on track and the result was a 41-7 setback to Garaway on Friday night at Lee Stadium.
The Trojans (3-6, 1-4 IVC) could only manage an 11-yard scoring strike from freshman quarterback Austin Zufelt to Austin King late in the game to avoid the shutout. Ben Smith added the extra point.
Garaway in the meantime piled on 21 points in the first quarter to set the tone early, as they finished with 402 yards of total offense, mostly from their spread formations.
Quarterback Tyler Walter hit Winston Mullett for the games first score on a 35-yard passing play. Gabe Elmores first of five extra points on the night made it 7-0.
The Pirate defense struck when Cody Mullett returned a Trojan fumble 16-yards to make it 14-0.
Eric Schie soon capped a drive when he crossed the goal line from the three to make it 21-0.
The Pirates added one touchdown in each of the next three quarters, including a 20-yard pass from Walter to Winston Mullett for a 28-0 halftime lead, a 42-yard Walter run in the third, and a 10-yard strike from Walter to Elmore in the fourth.
The Trojans threatened in the third quarter after getting to the Pirate 17-yard line but an interception by Winston Mullett at the 11 snuffed the drive.
Walter finished the night 13-of-22 for 166 yards with three TDs and one interception to lead the Pirates (7-2, 4-1 IVC). He also ran for 71 yards on six carries. Winston Mullett pulled in five receptions for 86 yards and two scores. On the ground, Schie led the way with 117 yards on 13 carries.
Trae Garlando led the Trojan offense with 65 yards on 14 carries. Zufelt was 7-of-14 for 92 yards with two interceptions.
The Pirates led in first downs, 14-7. The Trojans fumbled six times but only lost one of them while Garaway fumbled four times and lost two.
