Rain dampens Homecoming, Trojans win 10-6

By Thomas Sellers Jr.

The moment the rain started in the first quarter, fans break out their protection. The weather delayed the Trezevant/Millington game 30 minutes before the Trojans prevailed 10-6.

In front of a few soaked diehard fans, the Millington Trojans held on for a 10-6 Homecoming victory against the Trezevant Bears.

The game Friday night marked the first start for freshman quarterback Eldon Tyms. The young signal caller held his own in the downpour throwing a 60-yard touchdown pass to LaKeron Garcia.

Before Garcia navigated the wet Millington Football Stadium turf for the TD, the Trojan defense kept the Bears under control. Players like Johnathan Patterson, CJ Harris and George Odum came up with big tackles and sacks.

The defense made Brendon Van Emelen’s 20-yard field goal stand throughout the first half. Then after the Trojans caused a fumble in the second quarter, Tyms dropped back and threw a swing pass to Garcia.

The junior wide out broke one tackle and headed up the sideline. After cutting toward the middle of the field, Garcia was in the house making the score 10-0.

The rain slowed down in the second half. Lightning brought a stop to action after the first quarter. By the time the third quarter started the temperature dropped several degrees and most of the fans there for Homecoming were heading home.

The Bears scored a touchdown in the fourth quarter. But the Trojans were able to run out the clock to improve to 5-2 on the second.

Homecoming activities have been rescheduled for two weeks when the Trojans welcome Jackson North Side to town. Next Friday Millington will travel to Craigmont at Raleigh-Egypt Stadium for a 7 p.m. kickoff.
