The Trinity-Pawling Pride Varsity Football team rolled to their sixth straight win, beating Kent
34-7, on a cold Friday “Senior-Night” game in Pawling. As a result of the win, the Pride
finished their regular season at 6-2 and were rewarded by a spot in the post-season. T-P will host
Deerfield Academy (6-2) in the Mike Atkins Bowl, this Saturday, 18 November, at 1:00 P.M.
T-P did not waste any time taking the lead in this game. Kent tried an on-side kickoff, but the try
was recovered by Eddie Gonzalez ’19, and it gave T-P a short field. The T-P Offense marched
right down the field highlighted by two runs each from Dante Williams ’20 and Chizurum
Umunakwe ’18. The drive was capped off with a 16-yard Touchdown run by Quarterback
Re’mahn Davis ’19. Gonzalez added the point after to make the score 7-0 in favor of The Pride.
Kent did themselves no favors on this chilly night, as they mishandled the Trinity-Pawling
kickoff. The muff was recovered in a large scramble by Umunakwe, and T-P was set up again
on the Kent 21 yard line. Four plays later, Davis scored another Touchdown from 6 yards out,
and, after the Gonzalez kick, the score was 14-0, T-P.
Kent finally had the ball on Offense, but the T-P Defense was stingy all night long. Kent was
shut out during the first half. Kent went three and out on their first possession, and on their
second, the Kent Quarterback was intercepted by Camrhan Tillman ’18. The teams twice traded
punts to finish the first quarter and start the second.
Late in the second quarter, however, Jack Gump ’18 picked off another Kent pass, and T-P went
to work again on another short field. This time, Davis found Williams in the end zone for a 14-
yard TD pass. Another Gonzalez kick, and the score was T-P 21, Kent 0. That is how the first
Any opportunity for Kent to get back into this game was pretty much over during the third
quarter. Kent received the kickoff, but again went three and out. Trinity-Pawling went on one of
their longest drives of the season, a balanced 14-play affair capped off by a 3-yard TD run by
Umunakwe. The point after Touchdown failed, and the score was 27-0 in favor of the home
Kent managed to get on the scoreboard at the very end of the 3 rd Quarter on a fumble recovery,
but that was it for Kent, on this night. The 3 rd Quarter ended with T-P on top, 27-7.
Kent tried another on-side kick after their score, but the kick was recovered by Linus Wramage
’20. Davis and the T-P Offense again took over. The Quarterback had runs of 8, 11, and 50
yards, the last for a Touchdown, and the score was 34-7 after another Eddie Gonzalez kick.
The game ended by that same score, and the celebration of a post-season berth was on. Again,
T-P looks to win their 7 th in a row this Saturday, against Deerfield in what should be a fine Bowl
