Kevontaye Caston threw for three touchdowns and ran for one more to help lift Trinity Episcopal past Prairie View Academy 32-26 in an MAIS A-AA second-round playoff game.

“We didn’t play our best, but what showed throughout the game was that we played with heart,” Trinity Episcopal coach Graham Roberts said.

Trinity led 20-12 at the half and managed to hang on late.

David Jackson aided the Saints offense with 139 yards rushing.

“He’s one of the most underrated running backs in MAIS,” Roberts said. “We knew going in we had to do something different. They didn’t want Kevontaye running and they played back and spread out their defense. I knew that would give us an advantage with our backs.

Dee Flemming had a 27-yard touchdown snag from Caston, while Jakarius Caston and Jackson each added touchdown grabs as well. Jakarius’ touchdown came from 38 yards out.

Jackson added a 1-yard touchdown plunge in the fourth quarter.

Trinity will travel to Tri-County Academy last week with the winner advancing to the state championship game Nov. 17.
