The Trojans dominated the game on both sides of the ball from start to finish. The Trojans’ offense scored 24 points during the game. QB No. 3 Mikhi Mcgee threw beautiful passes to his receivers. McGee also did an amazing job at looking for his open receivers. The offensive players that scored were No. 8, No. 2 Kareem Burke, No.11 Carlton Blue, and No. 18. The defense had a hankering for the ball throughout the entire game. The defensive line did not give the ball carriers a break. Every time the Tigers Center snapped the ball, the Trojans’ defense were all over it. If the QB had time to hand the ball off, the defense was on the ball carrier like white on rice. The Defensive line did not give the Tigers a break. Defensive player No. 7 Ja’marre Hayes recovered a Tigers’ fumble for a TD.

The Tigers struggled to stay competitive in the game. The team put forth little effort after the half seeing that the score was 18-0. Somethings that needed improving in the second half for Mandarin were making trips to the redzone and converting opportunities into touchdowns. The offense reached the redzone three times, but could not complete the drives for TDs. As anticipated, the defense struggled to stop the Trojans’ offense. It was paramount for the Tigers high powered passing attack to keep pace with their opponent in orderto have a chance. However empty redzone trips ultimately doomed the Tigers on the afternoon.
