Trinity Catholic Dominant in First win of Season


By Brad Hallier


WHITEWATER, Kan. – A change in personnel helped lead Trinity Catholic to its first win of the young season on Friday at Whitewater.

Senior Eric Armour moved to running back and wide receiver, while sophomore Drew Dechant went to quarterback, and the move paid off – for those individuals and the Celtics – as Trinity rolled to a 41-7 win.

After a scoreless first quarter, Armout put the Celtics on the board with a 1-yard touchdown run on the first play of the second quarter.

Then, Dechant scored on a 5-yard touchdown run. He then hooked up with Armourt for an 83-yard touchdown pass that boosted the Celtics lead to 20-0.

Remington then pieced together a good drive late in the second quarter, but Armour intercepted a pass and returned it 83 yards, to the Remington 2-yard line. He ran in for a touchdown on the next play.

Dechant added a second-half touchdown pass to Kaid McElgunn, and Armour capped off the scoring with a 13-yard touchdown run.

The Celtics, who improved to 1-1, return home next week to take on Marion.
