DOG VS DOG SUPER BOWL
LEAGUE HISTORY SET AS TRION BLUE, TRION WHITE SET TO SQUARE OFF IN SUPER BOWL TILT
For the first time in the history of the North Georgia Youth Football League Championships/Super bowl, two teams from the same recreation agency will meet in the finals. The 5&6 Trion Blue and Trion White will play in Super bowl V Saturday, November 22 at 10 am at Ridgeland High School. Both teams won the right to vie for the League Title with stellar wins last Saturday at Sam R. McCain Stadium.
“This is a remarkable accomplishment for these youngsters”, said Trion Recreation Director Nolan Crisp. “Ben Groce (Blue) and Coy Hefner (White) and their coaching staffs have done a great job this year molding these boys into a team. It’s amazing how much these kids learn from the start of the season till the end. We are extremely proud of each team and can’t wait till an exciting Super Bowl V”.
The Trion Blue was the first team to qualify for the Super Bowl. The team came into the 5&6 Playoffs as the #3 seed and carried a 5-3 overall record. But the one thing about this squad was the improvement evident in each and every game. The Blue lost twice to the White in the regular season in close contests. They also dropped a game against Lakeview-Fort Oglethorpe 19-14 in a game that they controlled throughout.
Looking at the brackets, Blue coaches knew that they would most likely get another shot at the LFO Falcons. When the Blue blasted Chickamauga 30-0 on Nov. 1st and LFO canned the LaFayette Ramblers 33-0 later that afternoon, the anticipated match-up was a reality.
Last Saturday, the Blue Bulldogs spotted the Falcons a 6-0 lead and stormed back with 21 unanswered points to take a 21-6 lead into the fourth quarter. This time it was the Falcons that couldn’t keep up with the speedy backfield of Christian Henderson, Colton Sanford and Bryson Roberts. The stunned LFO team met a stone wall up front of Paul Hardman, Porter Sentell, Mason Stancil , Will Groce and corner guys Curt Hambright and Brody Ward. Mac Lee, Ridge Drake, Brennon Beavers, Thomas Blackwell, Ben Woods, Gavin Baker, Asher Clark, and Bransen Haley all contributed to the win. Trion continually had a team meeting in the Falcon backfield, disrupting the play before it could develop. When the final horn sounded Trion Blue had punched their ticket to Super Bowl V with a 34-20 victory. The team, coaches and parents celebrated the win and then sat back and pulled for their fellow Dogs, Trion White.
Trion White had been a juggernaut the entire year, rolling to an undefeated 8-0 record. Using a veteran offensive and defensive line, the team was staunch on both sides of the ball. Defensively, the White Dogs shutout 4 of their 8 opponents in the regular season and never allowed more than one touchdown. The offense was equally impressive with margins of victory of almost 3 touchdowns.
With the unblemished record, Trion White received a bye till the quarter finals of the playoff bracket. Ringgold defeated Summerville 27-0 on Nov. 1st for the right to take on Trion White last Saturday at Sam R. McCain. The 5th seeded Tigers went down to the Trion team 27-6 back on Sept. 16 and was looking for revenge on a warm afternoon for football.
What the Tigers got however was more of the same as the White Bulldogs rolled over them by 24-0. Cam Pritchett, Lincoln Hefner, Ayden Crabtree, and Staven Gardner all had stellar runs for the Dogs. Noah Gann caught a 45 yard touchdown pass from Pritchett to cap the scoring for Trion.
The offensive and defensive line of Will McWhorter, Price Wilson, Gabe Smith, Jared Boyd and Carson Aguirre were again at the top of their game. Jackson Kelly, Zayne Adams, Hagen Woody, Tristan Griggs, Jared Butts, Alden Little, Andrew Hinton and Alex Willingham all stood out for Trion.
Now the battle for the Super Bowl Championship. Either way it goes, Trion will be the winner as both teams have achieved a mark that will be hard to duplicate. Go Dogs, Blue and White!
