The Trojans’ defense stood up to a Lions offensive line that averaged 250 pounds.

Including their shutout last week, the Trojans (2-0, 1-0 Region) have allowed just one touchdown this season.

With 10:59 remaining in the first quarter, the Trojans fumbled and the Lions recovered.

Quarterback Nathan Pearce guided his team downfield, and he connected with receiver Justin Dickinson for a 40-yard bomb. The touchdown put Kingwood ahead 6-0.

The &8220;Meadowview Triplets&8221; &045; quarterback Daniel Blackmon, running back Brett Collins and wide receiver J.R. Lowe &045; went to work in the second quarter. Meadowview put up seven unanswered touchdowns over the rest of the game and took complete control.

With 10:14 left in the quarter, Blackmon rolled out and pitched the ball to Collins, who went 20 yards for the score and a 7-6 lead.

From then it was all Meadowview.

The Lions (1-1, 0-1 Region) took over, but defensive back Winston Bearden stopped the drive cold with an interception.

Three plays later, Collins went down the sideline for his second touchdown of the night, and the Trojans led 13-6.

The Trojan defense, led by 295-pound defensive end Ross Johnson, stopped the Lions on a three-and-out.

On the second play from scrimmage on the ensuing possession, Collins took a handoff for 58 yards and a 19-6 lead.

Pearce threw his second pick of the night on the next possession, this time to Matthew Roberts.

Blackmon went straight to the air and found Lowe for a 38-yard touchdown and a 25-6 halftime lead.

Meadowview continued to put its foot to the pedal in the second half.

Collins returned a punt for a touchdown, and the Trojans marched to victory.
