WORTON — The Tro­jans en­ter to­mor­row night’s foot­ball game against their bor­der ri­vals from Queen Anne’s on an emo­tional high after pil­ing up 56 points last week.

Sopho­more quar­ter­back Thomas Golds­bor­ough had a ca­reer night Sept. 21, com­plet­ing three of four passes for 120 yards in the shutout of Snow Hill. All three com­ple­tions came on the first play of a drive and were for touch­downs.

Jose Olavar­ria also threw for a score, sal­vaging what was a bad snap on a field goal at­tempt into a touch­down pass of 8 yards to Ty Wil­son.

Drue Wal­ters was 5-of-6 in ex­tra-point at­tempts and Olavar­ria ran in a 2-point con­ver­sion.

Kent (2-2) took con­trol from the open­ing kick­off, which Taek­won Dug­gins re­turned for a touch­down with only 12 sec­onds elapsed.

Snow Hill, which dressed only 18 play­ers, fum­bled on its first series. Pey­ton Tay­lor scooped up the loose ball on the Snow Hill 33. On the first snap, Golds­bor­ough found Corey Robin­son in the end zone.

Wal­ters’ kick was true and the lead was 14-0 with 9 min­utes, 11 sec­onds still to play in the open­ing quar­ter.

Robin­son hauled in an­other tight spi­ral from Golds­bor­ough, this one a scor­ing strike of 33 yards, to ex­tend the spread to 28-0.

Tre Wright on a counter had the Tro­jans’ fifth score of the first quar­ter as the lead swelled to 35-0.

The se­cond half was played with a run­ning clock.

Head coach Dave Boyle cleared his bench.

Robin­son and Wright each fin­ished with more than 100 yards of to­tal of­fense. Robin­son caught two passes for 66 yards, rushed for 44 yards on four car­ries and scored three times. Wright gained 43 yards on two car­ries and caught a touch­down pass of 54 yards.

Kent to­taled 183 rush­ing yards. Wil­son had 33 yards and Golds­bor­ough gained 31 yards on two car­ries.

Tay­lor and Wil­son each had a fum­ble re­cov­ery and Kevin Mal­lory picked off two passes.

Some of the younger and less ex­pe­ri­enced play­ers also con­trib­uted on de­fense. These in­cluded Collin Futty, Keith But­ler, Bran­don My­ers, Chris Geist and Buddy Welch.
