The Trojans took a tough loss after 48 bruising minutes with the Denison Monarchs Friday night, Sept. 8. The lead changed seven times between the opposing teams before the Monarchs took the lead for the final time with 50 seconds on the clock. The Trojans had one last chance at winning the game but had to start at their own six yard line with only 47 seconds left on the clock. The Monarach’s safety Cesar Rodriguez sealed the win after picking off Jaxson Eden’s throw up the middle. 

“I played pretty well on both sides of the ball. It was a great team effort; we just didn’t come out on top. They made one more big play than us.””

— Chase Mullenix

The Trojans scored early with a 4-yard touchdown run from senior full-back Noah Bruckner.  Sophomore Tyler Moen scored late in the first half on a 3-yard run to tie the game 14-14.

Junior Chase Mullenix scored on a 43-yard touchdown pass from senior Eden early in the 4th quarter. Scoring again late in the game, Moen caught a 53-yard touchdown pass from Eden.

The Trojans suffered their first loss of the season, and fell short 28-31.

The Trojans square off against the Winterset Huskies, Friday, Sept. 15. Kick off is at 7:30 at the Trojan Bowl.
