Potosi 32, Pacific 17
PACIFIC — The Potosi Trojans resumed their winning ways after an opening loss in week one with a 32-17 win over Pacific on Friday.
“We had a sluggish start, but we got it really going in the second half,” stated Potosi Coach Mark Casey.
Pacific scored on their first possession, and Potosi stalled out inside the 10 on theirs. Running back Andrew Brewer broke one for 39 yards on the first play of the second quarter to make it a 7-6 game as the PAT failed.
Garth Rogers put the cap on a Potosi drive with a five-yard run to make it 12-7, but Pacific would not trail long as they made it a 14-12 half.
Pacific would tack on a field goal in the last play of the third quarter, but it might have been better for them if they hadn’t. Garth Rogers took the rare opening kick off of the fourth quarter, and promptly returned it 88 yards to the end zone for the lead which the Trojans would not relinquish.
Rogers added two more touchdowns to his resume with a nine yard run with 9:35 left, and a 40 yard run with 7:52 remaining.
Rogers finished with 124 yards on 12 carries and four touchdowns and he also had two catches for 41 yards. Matt Marler was 5-10 passing for 84 yards.
Robert King made seven solo tackles and eight assists, and Matt Long had nine solos and five assists. Beau Missey had seven tackles and an interception, and Dylan Eye made five tackles with one pick.
