SIDNEY – The Trojans varsity football team came up big in another game of 2016 with a late half push for the 30-20 win over Sidney.

With Luke Erickson and Zach Orzell heading up the deadly rushing attack that the Trojans possess, the two combined for an astounding 240 yards off of 29 rushes in the matchup.

With a 0-0 after the first quarter, the defenses of both squads truly came to play this past Friday, Sept. 30.

Following a Sidney- Nate Vibbard 79 yard pass to Darren Smith, with an Ethan Finch two point conversion run – the Sidney Warriors opened the floodgates, something they could not stop.

Although already up 8-0, Greene responded in the third quarter, answering back with a 20 yard rush by Zach Orzell for the score – Coy Austin two point conversion run.

All tied up at 8-8 at the half, the slug fest continued as the third quarter played out to be the most beneficial in the Trojans win.

In what seemed like an exchange of touchdowns between the two teams late in the game, it was Greene who snuck in an additional strike in the third.

Greene opened the third quarter up with a 42 yard pass from Coy Austin to Orzell – Luke Erickson two point conversion. This was almost immediately answered off of Sidney's Vibbard 84 yard kickoff return for the score, drawing the game to a 16-16 tie. However, despite the exchanging of scores, Greene snuck in a two yard surge for the touchdown from Orzell late in the third to break the tie – Austin two point conversion run.
