DANVILLE – The Trinity Tigers used a dominant first half to defeat Centre (KY) College 20-13 to snap a two-game losing streak on Saturday afternoon.

The Tigers struggled to open the game as they drove down the field but a 24-yard field goal was blocked. After forcing a three-and-out, Trinity got the ball back and this time, they would convert a field goal to take the 3-0 lead. Trinity’s special teams went to work as Sam Hinojosa returned a blocked punt for a score, extending the Tigers lead to 10-0.

Centre would tie the game with two consecutive scores. First, they drove down the field, going 65 yards on six plays for a touchdown. Following a Trinity turnover, the home team would kick the 34-yard field goal to tie the game.


Trinity went back on top thanks to a big 70-yard kickoff return from Mike Edmonson. That would help the Tigers settle for a field goal, going up for good. The Tigers had one more 50-yard scoring drive left in them, putting them ahead 20-10 at halftime.

The Tigers’ would use hard-nosed defense in the second half as all Centre would manage was a field goal.
