Trenton High's football team made it count on homecoming with a monster 61-28 win over district foe Branford last Friday night.

The Tigers, 5-3 on the season and 3-1 in the district, have been quietly doing the hard work all season, playing to their strengths and adjusting to opponents. Friday's game was payoff.

The teams looked evenly matched in the early going, although Trenton struck first. Durrell Henry took a deep kickoff and hustled back, all the way up to the Buccaneers' 19-yard line. On the first play from scrimmage, Henry kept the ball right up the middle for a quick touchdown, and Brandon Mathis banged home the point after kick.

The Bucs answered quickly with a 65-yard, four-minute drive that had Branford running back Brian Barnes scooping up the lion's share of the yards. Down at the brink of the goal line, Barnes punched it in from one yard out and Tim Clark's point after kick was good for tie game.
