Well Trojan fans… this may go down in the books as questionable scheduling. The Milwaukee Vincent Vikings were no match for the Tosa West Trojans, who won easily 54 -0 on Friday night at Wauwatosa West’s home field. This brings the Trojan’s record to 2 – 0 for the year.
Is there a silver lining to their two lopsided non-conference wins? Maybe the fact that the bench got lots of work and the starters remained healthy.
The Trojans were up 34-0 at the end of the first quarter. Quarterback Jared Morzinski threw three passes all night – and two were long scores to Develyn Ferguson. On his second catch Ferguson rose high in the end zone to wrestle the ball from a Vincent defender. Greg Lewis produced a nice run up the middle for a 20 yard score. Senior teammate Jameson Brock had a pounding 25 yard scoring run.
Vincent had several muffed punts and mishandles. Near the end of the first quarter, West’s Christian Morzinski recovered a Vincent fumble – setting up a nice run by Demaris Purifoy who churned his way to a score from 20 yards out.
In the second quarter the Trojans starters were off the field and the bench kept things rolling. The defense had Vincent deep in their own territory all night. The offense found new ways to score, including a 30-yard Zach Veit field goal. On their following drive Trojan quarterback Marcus Morrow threw a strike to Eric Chapman who tip-toed the sidelines and picked up a first down. Junior Matt Lundell then picked his way through the Vincent defense for a 17 yard score. On defense – Morrow made a nice sack of the quarterback for a safety to finish half-time scoring, Trojans up 46 – 0.
In the second half, an all-sophomore backfield played well for the Trojans. Quarterback Jake Plantz managed the running game effectively. Curtis Oglesby and Jovani Jefferson made positive runs – and in the fourth quarter teamed up for a running touchdown and two-point conversion, to make the final score 54-0.
Next week’s match-up is at home against conference foe New Berlin West. NBW is reportedly improved from last year, but has had two non-conference losses so far against stronger opponents. While we know Trojan coaches are telling the team that “things will get tougher…”, now is the time for team leaders on the field to be focused on their conference foes (of course, while everyone is also focused on the start of the school year!).
Those at the game heard a steady rumble of hundreds of Harleys rolling along Highway 41/45 on Friday night. Congrats Harley Davidson on your 110th Anniversary!
