What a beautiful night for football and Milton High School is a beautiful venue and friendly atmosphere for fans to come out and support their teams. The contest, however, was not so pretty. The Trojans marched into Eagle Stadium and (for a couple of early play series) made it seem like it would be a fight! Unfortunately, for the Trojans, it came apart quickly and they trailed 28 – 0 at the half.
The Trojans were hoping to win this battle and obtain their first win of the year, but now find themselves at 0 – 5 and 0 – 3 in Region 5 AAAAAA. It was all Milton in every phase of the game, the only team this season to hold the Trojan’s high powered offense from scoring. Milton’s dominance was demonstrated with RB #33 Micco Brisker having another stellar night, scoring on a 24-yard and 56-yard run (running through and around Lassiter tacklers) and with a great QB performance by #11 Austin McLeod (who ran and threw the ball seemingly at will), eluding pursuit and keeping plays alive with his feet.
Lassiter punter #16 Mitchell Wasson had a busy night and did an amazing job under pressure when Lassiter frequently was forced to give the ball up on fourth down. Russell Aarons, who came into this game leading Region 5 AAAAAA in passing, ran for his life most of the night and was thwarted by an interception, several dropped passes, and the lack of an efficient run game to keep the defense honest.
The old saying, “A picture is worth a thousand words …” sums up a heartbreaker for what is considered a very talented Trojan team.
GHSA News Online congratulates the Milton Eagles on a “Big” win and wishes the Trojans success in future games. Rosters for both teams are provided below in support for these two great Region 5 AAAAAA teams!
