CLINTON, La. — Two games in five days? No problem.

After topping Bowling Green School on the road Monday in a game delayed by Tropical Storm Isaac, Trinity Episcopal turned around and took care of business against Silliman Institute Friday.

The Saints rushed for 223 yards and took advantage of four Wildcat turnovers in a 27-14 win that improved Trinity to 2-2 on the season.

Tanner Cage scored Trinity’s first touchdown on a 6-yard run with 10:54 to go in the first quarter. Cage added another touchdown with 57 seconds left in the first on a 12-yard run.

Silliman’s Todd Bourgeois caught a 1-yard touchdown pass from quarterback Cobb Kelly to cut Trinity’s lead to 14-7 with 8:15 left before halftime. But Demarcus Fleming extended Trinity’s lead again, scoring from 5 yards out on a run with 5:23 left in the second.

Kelly had a 4-yard touchdown carry to make it 21-14 Trinity at intermission. Fleming scored the final touchdown of the game with 4:43 left in the third on a 20-yard run.

Cage led the Saints in rushing, tallying 159 yards. Fleming added 72 yards.

Garrett Vinson went 4-for-11 in passing for 20 yards and one interception for the Saints. Trinity’s Sky Logan, Michael Iles and Peyton Young all had fumble recoveries on defense, and Jared Hedrick had an interception.

Trinity returns home next Friday to host River Oaks.
