Hutch Trinity claims victory over Warriors

Sports writer

The Peabody-Burns High School football team suffered a fourth loss Friday night at Hutch Trinity.

The Celtics overpowered the Warriors 51-6.

The next test for the winless Warriors will be Friday at home against Sedgwick.

PBHS defense did the job on the first series of the contest.

Passes were broken up by Tyler Slater, Jacob Simmonds, and Derek Price.

Tackles were made by Price, Simmonds, Brandon Pickens, Trevor Foth, Caleb Hilliard, Chris Brooks, and Isaac Hilliard.

PBHS forced a Celtic punt and Warrior offense had the ball at their own 40-yard line.

Hutch Trinity defense intercepted the first PBHS pass from the line of scrimmage and the Warrior defense came back on the field.

The Celtics scored the first points in the contest on a 20-yard run. They added an extra point and Hutch led the game 7-0.

A kick-off return by Storm Pickens set up the offense at their own 44-yard line.

PBHS lost four yards on the series and Isaac Hilliard punted the ball.

Abe Eldridge recovered a fumble on the next Celtic series, and the Warriors were on their own 35-yard line.

Again the offense went in reverse and on fourth-and-16 an errant snap went over Isaac Hilliard’s head.

A personal foul penalty added to the lost yardage and the Celtics set up a first-and-goal at the Warrior eight-yard line.

Trinity scored on a pass and added a kick to make the score 14-0 with three minutes, 14 seconds left in the first quarter.

Hutch Trinity added a field goal and three more touchdowns in the half, for a total of 38 points.

The Warrior offense struggled for the remainder of the first half, but Warrior defense came up with a score.

With four minutes left in the second quarter, Spencer Moffett fell on a Celtic fumble in the end zone for the touchdown.

The PAT was unsuccessful but the Warriors were on the board

Warrior offensive woes continued in the second half.

The passing game was not in sync and the running game did not produce much yardage either.

Defensive plays were made in the second half by Brandon Pickens, Brooks, Simmonds, Price, Eldridge, Caleb Hilliard, Justin Fistler, Henry Hammann, Slater, Storm Pickens, Moffett, Wesley Shaw, Chris Dunfield, Clint Jones, Joseph Lopez, Sean Brunner, and Sean Jones.

The Trinity offense added two more scores to make the final 51-6.

Simmonds was 1-3 through the air for 17 yards.

Caleb Hilliard rushed for 10 yards, Eldridge had one run for three yards, while Isaac Hilliard punted six times for 170 yards.

Caleb Hilliard led with six tackles, Price, Isaac Hilliard, and Hammann each had four and a half.

Eldridge had four and Brooks recorded three.

Others included, Foth (2.5), Simmonds (2.5), Brunner (1.5), Storm Pickens (one), B.Pickens (one), Moffett (one), Slater (one), Lopez (one), Sean Jones (.5), Clint Jones (.5).
