And it didn’t take long for Williams to make an impact. His 40-yard touchdown reception put the Eagles on top just 2 minutes into the game. Williams ended the night with nine carries for 100 yards and four receptions for 88 yards and the touchdown.
Coach Mitch Jordan said Williams brought a speed to the game Trion was unable to contain.
“I don’t think they’ve seen our type of speed,” Jordan said. “It was a tale of two different teams — one with strength and power, and one with speed.”
The Eagles scored three touchdowns before Trion would get on the board.
Taylor Trammell, who had 74 yards rushing, had a 38-yard touchdown run to make the score 14-0.
Working their way back to the red zone just before the end of the quarter, Dorian Walker scored on a 6-yard run to make the score 21-0 early in the second quarter.
Trion cut into the lead later in the second, scoring two touchdowns — the first on a Jared Wigley 6-yard run followed by Bradley Womack’s 1-yard plunge. A missed extra point and a failed two-point conversion made the score
Mount Paran’s Dallas Kepler extended the lead just before halftime with a 25-yard field goal.
Walker closed the scoring on a 15-yard rush half way through the fourth quarter. He finished the game with 12 carries for 115 yards and two touchdowns.
Jake Allen completed seven of 11 passes for 122 yards and a touchdown.
Mount Paran will take some time to rest with next week’s bye before starting the the second half of the season.
