Trenton JV boys fall to South Harrison, girls remain unbeaten

The Trenton junior varsity boys picked up a strong 21 point night from Dalton Burchett, but struggled to find a consistent second scoring option, falling to South Harrison on Monday night, 61-37.

Trenton fall behind early, trailing 20-5 after one quarter, before battling back to a more respectable deficit of 27-16 by the half.  South Harrison dominated the third quarter, extending the lead to as big as 30 points, leaving THS “playing for pride” by the final stanza.  

Coach Kameron Cool told KTTN Sports, “This was by far the best team we’ve seen this year and we struggled to make enough shots to keep pace.  We did a lot of good things, and will continue to get better over the break”.

After Burchett’s 21 points, Joey Lynch had the next-highest point total for the Trenton JV Bulldogs, with five points.

The Trenton JV girls, much like their varsity counterparts on Friday night, dominated their game against South Harrison, leading 16-0 after one quarter and winning 58-11.  Maci Moore led the way for THS with 16 points.  Saedee Jackson, McKayla Blackburn, and Haley Kidd all had 12 points in the win.
