Falcons frustrate Trojans

Posted:

TURKEY VALLEY (KWWL) -- A little bit of the luster was taken off Friday's match up when Nashua-Plainfield handed Turkey Valley its first loss of the season last week, but it was still a marquee game of top ten powers with a lot at stake.

It was the battle of the "Big Reds" in Jackson Junction as the Falcons took on the Trojans. A-P would strike first, after a 72 yard 14 play drive, full back Collin Tenney would take it in for six. The Falcons would miss the extra point.

Then it was Turkey Valley's turn. Quarter back Drew Loftus would go deep to receiver Jordan Nolte and Nolte would do the rest, taking it to the house for six. With the two point conversion the Trojans go up eight to six.

A-P would strike again with a familiar full back Collin Tenney with his second score of the game.

The Trojans would keep fighting back with some big plays. Jordan Nolte would take the Falcons kick off return and 82 yards to the house.

But A-P would not be denied. Collin Tenney with his third score of the game and with the two point conversion the Falcons would go into halftime with a 20 to 14 lead. They would just keep piling it on in the second half. The Falcons go on to top the Trojans with a score of 44 to 26.

The Falcons are playing like a team on mission and they are putting up some major points on some very good teams.
