River Oaks played a better second quarter but couldn’t match the Saints fast-paced offense as Trinity took a 14-point lead at halftime.

“It was a very physical game,” River Oaks head coach Roger Stockton said.

The Saints played a slow third quarter, scoring only nine points, but held River Oaks to 11 to maintain the lead.

River Oaks only managed to score six points in the fourth quarter, and Trinity put up 19 to secure the win.

“This is the deepest team I have ever had here at Trinity,” Trinity head coach David King said. “We played good defense all night and this game puts us in good situation.”

“Coach King always does an outstanding job with his team,” Stockton said. “I am sure that they will do well in the playoffs.”

Andrew Johnson led the Saints with 15 points while Brandon Daggs added 11 and Jordan Dossett scored 10.

Vincent Moore and Jordan Smith put up 15 points apiece to lead River Oaks.

The Trinity Lady Saints had it all together tonight, as they steamrolled the River Oaks Lady Mustangs in a district game.

Trinity took an 18-point lead over the Lady Mustangs after only one quarter of play.

The Lady Saints then scored 24 more points in the second quarter while holding River Oaks to only seven and took a 46-11 halftime lead.

“Coach Hall has always done very well with her team,” River Oaks head coach Roger Stockton said.

River Oaks didn’t score a single point in the third quarter and continued to struggle in the fourth with only four points.

The Lady Saints got to play just about everyone on their roster with a total of 11 players putting points on the board.

“I just thank God that we had the opportunity to go out there and play,” Trinity head coach Melanie Hall said. “Our girls played well tonight, it was great to give all of the players some playing time.”

Trinity remains undefeated in district play heading into Tuesday’s rematch with Prairie View.

Brandy Hall led the Lady Saints with 18 points while her teammate Molly Butts scored 15.

Rachael Causey and Anna Mayfield each scored four points to lead the Lady Mustangs.
