Bulldogs Tear Apart Shamrocks

Male High School dominated Trinity High School last Friday night with a resounding 42-13 victory to secure their fourth win in the last five meetings against the No. 1 ranked team in the state.

Bulldogs quarterback Hayden Shelton threw for three touchdowns while Devin Gentry rushed for a further three. Shelton threw 12-23 for 266 yards while Gentry added 88 rushing yards for Male, as they also stopped Trinity thanks to a tight defense, holding the Shamrocks to 35 yards in the second half.

Male extended their season’s tally to 4-0, while Trinity saw their first defeat of the season, dropping to 3-1 after Head Coach Bob Beatty suffered the third heaviest defeat in his tenure as Trinity head coach.

Looking Ahead

No. 9 DeSales Colts (3-0) out of Class 2A will travel to the home field of Class 5A Fern Creek Tigers (2-1) September 18 at 7 p.m. Fern Creek comes into this one with a strong run game behind dual threats at the running back position, Delquan Wimberly and Jamison White. The Colts, led by quarterback and UofL commit Austin Johnson, will look to stay undefeated on the season. VT
