Trojans Gallop Past Middle Creek


Garner scored 31 unanswered points to erase a one-point, 21-20 deficit and gallop past Middle Creek on Friday night at Mustang Stadium, 46-29.

Middle Creek (3-1, 1-0) broke a 14-14 halftime score on its opening possession of the second half as they marched 64-yards and scored on a touchdown pass from David Salmon to Quinton Ray and the Mustangs took a 21-20 lead.

However, Middle Creek would cough up the football on its next drive and the Trojans would capitalize as Nyheim Hines scored from 16 yards out and after a failed two-point conversion, the Mustangs still had a 21-20 lead.

The Mustangs went three and out on its next drive and Garner (4-0) came right back and scored on Tyler Hinton's five yard rumble and the men of Troy took a 27-21 lead.

Middle Creek would get no close as they went three and out, again and was forced to punt the ball to Hines, who found a seem down the sideline for a 57-yard punt return for a score (his third of the season) and the Trojans were in control.

Garner added a couple more scores from Hines who finished the night with four total touchdown, three rushing and one on the punt return.

The Mustangs also added a late score for the final, 46-29 margin of victory.

Garner has now won nine of the 10 meetings against the Mustangs and will return home next Friday night to open Greater Neuse River play against the Clayton Comets, kick-off is slated for 7:00
