The ground game wasn’t much of a factor in Saturday’s football game between Trinity Lutheran and Metro-East Lutheran, but the passing game was in full bloom.
Host Trinity finished with 339 yards in the air to Metro-East’s 226, and the Cougars threw for six touchdowns to outscore the visiting Knights 56-7.
This is the first year for football at Trinity, and Saturday marked the first time in three varsity games that the Cougars had the most points when time expired. They, however, had to take a voluntary forfeit.
“We did not win today because we have one ineligible player that transferred, and with a 19-man roster, we had to play him,” Cougars coach Anthony Levy said. “Everybody was aware of that up front.”
Still, he said, it was nice to come out on top.
