Anthony Stephenson rumbles in from 16 yards, senior Collin Eaddy hits paydirt from 9, Cody Carpenter 31-yard TD to Justin LewisDonovan Evans 40-yard TD for 30-0, including the Trojans 6th safety of the year on Daiveon Carrington tackle in the end zone in the first quarter. Stephenson scores again on 3 yard carry with the always stout Garner defense keeping the Rams without a first down in the first 6 possessions. DJ Holloway 34-yard TD at 8:34 to halftime & Eaddy scores again from 26 yards out. Prestige Bellamy 33 yard TD completes the destruction to keep Garner unbeaten in their temporary home at S.Garner this season.
