Troy 61, McLouth 19
The Bulldogs scored first in their second game of the week on Friday at Troy, but it was all Trojans after that as the McLouth High football team suffered its first loss of the season.
Four days after winning a triple-overtime game at Jackson Heights, it looked like MHS (2-1) was picking up right where it left off when senior quarterback Derrick Crouse threw a touchdown pass and kicked the extra point to give the Bulldogs an early 7-0 lead.
However, Troy scored five unanswered touchdowns after that to cruise to victory.
Crouse finished with three touchdown passes in the setback. He found junior Cody Winborn for a 21-yard score in the second quarter, cutting Troy's lead to 33-13. But the Bulldogs didn't score again until the fourth quarter when Crouse hit fellow senior Jarrod Bechard for a TD pass.
McLouth's next contest this Friday will be the Bulldogs' homecoming game. MHS takes on Wathena at 7 p.m. at Stan Braksick Sports Complex, with the homecoming crowning - featuring three king candidates from the football squad, Bechard, Crouse and Sklyer Terry - to be held during halftime.
