Last week was the class AA State Championship game in US Bank Stadium. This was a game that the Trojans fell a little short. The Trojans held their ground against the now four-time defending state champions, the Caledonia Warriors. “I was confident, we saw some things on film that we knew we could stop. Knew that their defense was the best around and that’s what we struggled with,“ said junior Hunter Zenzen going into the game. The Trojans were confident as they always are. The game started and ultimately finished as a defensive battle. The score was 0-0 at the end of the first quarter. In the middle of the second quarter, Caledonia struck first blood with an 11 yard touchdown run from their running back Nick McCabe. This was a key play that only happened because of a Trojan turnover inside the 25. That gave the Warriors momentum going into half time. The second half was much like the first, a defensive battle. The score was 7-0 all the way up to 4:32 left on the clock in the fourth quarter. Cal simply got their offense moving that drive and scored a touchdown. Now the Trojans were forced to do something they are not known for, passing. The Trojans threw an interception on the following drive that was returned for a touchdown. The score was 21-0 with 1:30 left in the game, and that would end up being the final score. “I felt I did my job and did so to the best of my ability,” said junior Connor Morse. This loss will fuel the underclassmen to get there again next year. Zenzen stated, “Not only does it give us a drive, but it gives us confidence that we can show up again next year and win it.” The Trojans fell one game short on the season, but let nobody down this season.
