The teams exchanged possessions for the rest of the first half. Just before the half, the Trojans marched down the field, aided by two 15-yard penalties, to the Wildcat 12. The Wildcat defense held them out of the end zone, and the first half of action came to an end with the score 8-0.

In the second half, the ‘Cats began with the ball at their own 49. Four plays later, the Wildcats fumbled the ball over to the Trojans. They scored with plays later. The conversion was successful, making the score 16-0. The Wildcats again began with good field position, starting at their own 44.

The Wildcats got no closer, and the Trojans sealed the win with a 22-yard run for a touchdown with a little over a minute left in the game to take the 24-0 win.

Congratulations, Trojans. The Wildcats will be working to improve on their 2-8 record and preparing for another edition of Wildcat football in 2022.
