STMA outplayed the Trojans who fall to 1-2 on the season; Totino Grace (1-2) up next
Our Wayzata Trojans football team traveled and fell to STMA last weekend. It was a game the Trojans believed they could win heading into the contest.
One bright spot for the Trojans was the passing game, as QB Cole Heilbrun completed 20 passes on 34 attempts to gain 260 yards and a touchdown. Heilbrun connected with 6 different receivers including 7 pass completions to Ford Griffith for 116 yards.
Early in the contest it looked like the Trojans would be in control during the whole game as Will Ronning and the Wayzata defense would sack Knight QB Colton Demarais early and often.
Wayzata would threaten to score first, but a deflected pass from Trojan QB Cole Heilbrun to TE Charlie Tomczik would be intercepted and Wayzata would not convert from inside the Knight 5 yard line.
Consequently, the Knights would score first as running back Conner Luongvan would dive for a 1 yard TD to put STMA on the scoreboard first. The point after attempt was not converted making it Knights 6, Wayzata 0 midway through the 2nd quarter.
Carter Olson scored a 4 yard touchdown run for Wayzata and Nate Stueve added a PAT to make it Trojans 7, Knights 6 late in the 2nd quarter.
As time expired in the first half, STMA’s Colton Demarais hit a streaking Brody Odlund for a 46 yard pass completion for touchdown. , The Knights would also complete a two point play after touchdown to make it STMA 14, Wayzata 7 at the half.
STMA scored once in the 3rd quarter on a quarterback keeper by Demarais and an extra point making it 21-7 Knights headed into the 4th.
STMA’s Sam Anderson rushed for a 90 yard touchdown making it 28-7 for the Knights midway through the 4th.
Wayzata marched down the field and scored on a Heilbrun to Tyler Milkes touchdown pass and completion to bring Wayzata closer, Knights 28, Trojans 14.
An additional Wayzata drive and 1 yard TD run by Carter Olson made it STMA 28, Wayzata 21 to conclude the game. Olson finished with 22 carries for 91 yards and 2 TD’s with a 4.1 yard per carry average.
The Trojans will host Torino-Grace this Friday for the Homecoming game. The Eagles have been outscored 68-34 in their 3 games so far, and are averaging 5.7 yards passing and 21.7 yards rushing per game.
