Trojans Use Balance, Big Plays to Beat New Berlin West

With another win, 46-13, Tosa West is a different team this year, moving the ball and scoring through the air and on the ground, and playing tough defense, too.

The Tosa West Trojans picked up where they left off last week, with a dominant, big-play offense and a stout, disciplined defense – as they defeated the New Berlin West Vikings on Friday night, 46-13.

For the third straight game, senior wing back Mickey Morgan got things rolling with an 18-yard run from scrimmage to help Tosa take an early lead.

On their very next offensive series, two Trojan juniors connected. Jared Morzinski threw a short pass to Jameson Brock, who made a nice run-after-catch down the right sideline to score on a 65-yard play. The first quarter ended with the Trojans up 14-0. 

There was more excitement in the second quarter. On Tosa’s first offensive series Jameson Brock used great balance and speed on a pitch play, as he tight-roped down the left sideline to score from 58 yards, and the Trojan’s lead was 21-0.

The defense was excellent all night against the Vikings' running game that plowed between the hash marks. Jon Doolen, Khaled Salem, Greg Lewis and Shawn Connors made great stops in the second quarter.

Tosa scored next when senior Sam Clough made an excellent catch over the middle. With a tackler draped on his back, Clough powered and stretched his way into the end zone – putting Tosa up 27-0.

Near the end of the first half, Tosa fumbled a New Berlin punt, a Viking scooped the ball up and scored, closing the gap at halftime to 27-6.

In the second half, the Vikings first offensive series used an effective run-pass balance – but burned over eight minutes of clock before they scored, making it 27-13.

Answering the call was the Trojan’s Jameson Brock. This time he used a great cut-back and downfield blockers in a 55-yard scamper, and the score was 34-13.

In the fourth quarter, the ball belonged to the Trojan’s fullback Greg Lewis, who used power runs and spin moves to eat up clock and yardage.

Tosa would go on to after junior Niko Lewis tipped a ball into the hands of Mickey Morgan, who raced to the Vikings 30. From there, Morzinski found junior Develyn Ferguson, who ran a nice post route into the end zone.

With six minutes left, Greg Lewis ran behind the right side of Tosa’s strong offensive line to finish the scoring, 46-13.

Next, the Trojans take on Pius XI High School (2-1) on at 7 p.m. Saturday at the stadium, 10200 Watertown Plank Rd.
