Trinity’s Micah Finley did it all for the Hillers. Finley had 4 Touchdowns, 3 receiving and 1 rushing. He also had an Interception late in the first half. His interception was one of 3 turnovers the Hillers forced. The game featured 6 interceptions with each team guilty of completing 3 passes to the other team.

Trinity took the lead early with a blocked punt that was scooped up and scored by Kaden Kolson. This would be the only touchdown of the first half as each traded possession throughout the remainder of the first period.

In the second quarter, it was much of the same until West Mifflin hit a field goal that clanked off the crossbar and through the uprights to make it a 6-3 game. Turnovers ensued the next few drives until Micah Finley intercepted a pass and was marked on the Trinity 2-yard line. With less than 30 seconds to play in the half, instead of taking a knee, the Hillers elected to try and throw the ball down the field. However, an errant shotgun snap launched out of the back of the endzone created the unique 6-5 halftime score.

It was all Trinity in the second half, to be more specific it was all Micah Finley. Finley made his first big play of the second half on a goaline fade that he tipped to himself and caught for the score extending the Trinity lead to 12-5, which would be one that they would not surrender.

Finley had two more touchdown catches each from 29 yards out, then added a rushing touchdown with less than a minute to play to give the game its 32-5 final.

The Hiller defensive performance is one that should also be recognized. Allowing just 3 points and forcing 3 turnovers, Trinity made it a long night for the Titans. This will be something that Trinity hopes will carry over to next week’s game as they will host rival Washington High for the first time in 21 years. Trinity improves to 2-2 and West Mifflin falls to 1-3.
