Already competing in CIF-Southern Section Division 13, injuries to a plethora have derailed what looked to be a promising start to Trinity Clasical Academy’s season.
The Knights evened their record at 2-2 before dropping a close one to Santa Clarita Christian School (27-18) on Sept. 30.
But the loss to SCCS sent the Knights to a five-game losing streak which they carry into their regular-season finale against Firebaugh on Friday at Fillmore High School.
Trinity was without Ryan DeMarois, Tyler Lee and Carson Campuzano in its 54-6 loss to Pasadena Poly two weeks ago and was still without DeMarois when it lost 40-14 to Rio Honda Prep last Friday.
Lee and Phineas Yi split time at quarterback last week, with Lee finding Yi for a 42-yard touchdown for the team’s only passing touchdown of the night. Lee also ran for a touchdown.
Campuzano hauled in eight passes for 48 yards in his return but a 14-point third quarter merely put a dent in Rio Honda Prep’s 26-0 halftime lead.
Firebaugh (2-7, 0-2) has had struggles of its own in the Prep League and opened league play with a 58-6 loss to Rio Honda Prep on Oct. 20.
