The Trinity Lions football team scored quicky Friday night in their game against Westwood and didn’t stop until the clock it all zeros in the fourth quarter.

It translated into a 62-0 victory in a home non-region GISA game Friday night.

After losing the first two games of the season, including an overtime defeat against Bulloch Academy, the Lions have shut out their last three opponents, outscoring them 156-0.

With the win, Trinity moves to 3-2 overall.

Friday night, Luke Vermilya got the scoring started for Trinity with a 34-yard run.

The Lions kept their foot on the throttle by mixing up the run with the pass.

Zach Seymour hooked up with Kyle Riesslmann for a 14-0 lead.

A short time later, Levi Robinson scored on a 14-yard run to give the Lions a 21-0 lead.

Riesslmann caught a 50-yard pass from Shep Hancock to increase the lead to 28-0.

Seymour scored on a 38-yard rush for a 35-0 lead.

With 3:50 still left in the first half, the Lions added two more touchdowns.

Seymour tossed a 16-yard touchdown pass to Jake Goodman to give the Lions a 42-0 lead, and Goodman then capped the first-half scoring with a 23-yard run to give the Lions a 49-0 lead at the half.

Caleb Railey helped push the lead to 56-0 with a 33-yard run and Marc Robinson closed out the scoring with a 2-yard run.

Ethan Aldridge was 8 for 8 on extra points.

Trinity opens region play next week at Bethlehem Christian.
