The University Trojans put forth a valiant effort Thursday night against the Ellison Eagles, but fell short by a score of 54-27. Nick Ward did another outstanding job of running the ball, but it was not enough. In the end, it was too much of Ellison's Carl Robinson using his highly accurate passing arm that dropped the Trojans to another loss.
University kept the score close going into halftime, trailing 20-19, but second half mistakes proved costly. The turning point in the game took place midway through the third quarter with Ellison driving near midfield. Ellison quarterback Robinson dropped back and threw to his right. Trojan defensive back #17 Kahron Hall made the play, jumped the route, and almost came up with the interception that would have clearly been a pick six, which would have brought the University team within two. On the very next play, Robinson threw back to his left and found his man for a long touchdown. After that, University just couldn't do enough to keep up in the second half, dropping their record to 0-4 for the season.
