Trinity looking to move 2-0 with road game at Canton

Published 12:41 am Thursday, August 25, 2016

Trinity Episcopal will have a short turnaround this week as it travels Friday night to take on Canton Academy.

Under the direction of first-year coach Graham Roberts, Trinity won its first game of the season Saturday, a 29-14 victory over Silliman Institute.

One area Roberts wants to see his team improve is in the penalty department. The Saints were flagged 16 times last week.

“There were a lot of mental mistakes,” he said. “But that’s all correctable.”

Roberts said Canton will present a new set of challenges.

“We’re very excited,” he said. “Our kids have worked hard all this week. We have a new outlook, a new sense of family. I’ve been stressing to the kids to be one brotherhood, and they’ve taken that to heart.”

Led by quarterback Kyle Kindred’s 250 total yards, Canton (1-0) slipped past Leake Academy in its opener, 14-0.

Roberts said the key to success Friday night comes down to which team is able to control the line of scrimmage.

“We’re going to have to execute at the line,” he said. “We match up pretty well skill wise.”

Kickoff is set for 7 p.m.
