About the only negative thing that happened Friday night to the Lions in their GISA Region 1-AAA opener was they allowed an opponent to find the end zone. 

The Lions entered the game with three straight shutouts. Still, Trinity dominated, building a 54-0 lead at one stage of the contest.

The Lions’ offense has been just as impressive as the defensive, and Friday night, they jumped out to a 21-0 lead in the first quarter.

Luke Vermilya got the scoring started on the second play of the game when he marched 49 yards to give the Lions a 7-0 lead.

Zach Seymour gave the Lions a 14-0 lead when he scored on a 2-yard run with 2:11 left in the first quarter.

Levi Robinson then made it 21-0 with his 38-yard run early in the second quarter.

After scoring their first three touchdowns on the ground, the Lions added the fourth score of the game when Seymour connected with Sharmari Reid on a 40-yard pass.

Vermilya added his second touchdown of the night when he rambled 51 yards for a 35-0 lead.

Seymour increased the lead to 48-0 with his 47-yard sprint to the end zone.

The defense then got into the act when Zach Jones intercepted a pass and returned it 43 yards for the Lions final score.

Bethlehem prevented the Lions from getting their fourth straight shutout with a late score.

Trinity improves to 4-2 overall and 1-0 in the region.
