Week 6: Castle Park Trojans 38, Crawford Colts 0

The Castle Park Trojans trounced the Crawford Colts, 38-0, pitching the shutout en route to a 6-0 start to the 2019 season.

The first quarter saw junior running back Erik Hernandez take a handoff 72 yards for the first score of the game, making it 7-0, Castle Park.

Later in the first quarter, junior running back Xavier Alvarado also found pay dirt, as he scored from 12 yards out. The Trojans took the 14-0 lead into the locker room at halftime.

The second half started a lot like the first. This time, Hernandez went 45 yards for the score and the Trojans advantage grew to 21-0.

Still in the third, with Crawford backed up in its own end zone, Hernandez got to the quarterback along with sophomore Ashuan Duncan-Claybon to force the safety. The safety extended the margarin to 23-0.

While Hernandez seems a lock for Player of the Game, Duncan-Claybon at least warrants consideration.

On the kick following the safety, Duncan-Claybon took the return 59 yards the other way for a Castle Park touchdown extending the lead to 29-0.

While the ground game is where the Trojans feast, the matchup ended on a high-flying play call.

Quarterback Demarkus Lewis found tight end Chris Romero for the 38-yard score, making it 38-0, Castle Park.

Castle Park has a bye coming up next week while Crawford will visit Hoover.
