Slip and Slide
October 21, 2012Lake Worth Community High School
The Trojans of Lake Worth and Wildcats of Royal Palm Beach fought a hard battle on a huge 100 yard slip and slide Friday night, as the rain fell heavily right at kickoff time.
The Wildcats who are undefeated in district play continued their perfect record as they topped Lake Worth 23-8 in a sloppy game.
The Wildcats and Trojans committed numerous turnovers as the rain fell all night. The Trojans had a bad snap on a punt from their own end zone to start the scoring off as punter James Jones fell on the ball in the end zone to give the Wildcats the 2-0 lead.
On the next possession the Wildcats put one in the end zone to make it 8-0 after a failed 2 point conversion.
The Trojans would come back and tie the game as a slick under thrown ball intended for WR James Jones slipped through the hands of the Wildcat cornerback and the sure hands of James Jones picked it out of the air and rumbled into the end zone as defenders held on for dear life as James Jones dragged them into the end zone to make it 8-6. The Trojans would attempt the 2 point conversion and again go to the hands of James Jones who easily took the ball out of the air with a defender on him to make it 8-8.
That would be the story of the first half and the whole Trojan season as they play a real good half in every game but seem to sputter in one half as they had another bad snap to start the second half that led to another safety for the Wildcats. With the Wildcats up 17-8 the Trojans started a drive and a pick 6 all but ended the game as the Wildcats went up 23-8 and that would be the final.
Game Notes.... Quarterback Luis Peguero struggled as he was only 4/18 passing with 107 yards. Richard Seraphin was the highlight of the Trojans as he ran for 55 yards and added another 55 yards receiving. James Jones led the team in receiving with 70 receiving yards and added the Trojans only points with a touchdown (he is 2nd on the team with 5 touchdowns). The Trojan defense held the high powered Wildcat offense to only 13 points.
