Trinity overcomes five turnover night

Five turnovers on Trinity Classical Academy football’s first five possessions spelled disaster.

In the end, disaster was averted.

The Knights rode the coattails of returning Spencer Klehn to a 51-13 victory over Lancaster Baptist in Lancaster on Friday night in the teams’ Heritage League opener.

“I’ve never seen them play this way before,” said Trinity head coach Mike Buchanan of his team. “I told one of the coaches the only way they can beat us is by catching some long passes and beating us on turnovers. I thought, ‘Oh my gosh, here comes my nightmare.’”

How they were only down 7-0 in the first half after all those turnovers is a credit to the Trinity defense.

How they jumpstarted the offense was some credit to Klehn, who missed the Knights’ first two games with an AC-joint injury in his shoulder.

The Knights (2-1, 1-0) took an 8-7 lead into halftime after a touchdown pass from Ryan Brooks to Colton Oshiro and a two-point conversion late in the second quarter.

In the second half, Trinity turned it on when Klehn entered the game.

He took a Brooks pass 46 yards for a touchdown, then scored on an 11-yard run to boost the lead to 22-7.

The barrage continued with a 22-yard touchdown run by Brooks, an 11-yard scoring run by Nick Spinello, an 11-yard touchdown pass from Oshiro to Nathan Santillana and finally a 75-yard quarterback sneak touchdown from Patch Kulp.

Kulp had 21 carries for 146 yards and two interceptions and nine tackles.

Ian Caddow made 18 tackles and had an interception and Santillana added 11 tackles.

Lancaster Baptist’s record now stands at 2-2 overall and 0-1 in Heritage League play.
