On Friday, September 17th the Trojans played Sequoyah High School in the small town of Madisonville. The Men of Troy ended up scoring a touchdown within the first 30 seconds of the game, forecasting a game of triumph for Soddy Daisy. At this time, Sequoyah High School has not won a game since 2018. Coach Raborn praises his Men of Troy for their hard work: “We had a really good week of practice and played with confidence. It felt good to win.”
The first touchdown was a 52 yard pass from Slater Hickmen to Tanner Wittenbarger. The score at halftime was 31-0. In the second quarter, freshmen Jake Jackson suffered a head injury and had to be taken to the hospital. Fortunately, Jackson is alright and the injury was minor. Sequoyah ended up scoring two touchdowns in the second half of the game, but the Trojans still defeated them 46-12 at an ultimate victory.
Soddy Daisy will play again on Friday, September 24th at Tyner!
