After dropping their first two games of the year, the Trinity Lions look to be in business now, under the leadership of first-year head coach Kenny Dallas.

Friday night on the road against Windsor Academy in Macon, the Lions rolled to a 45-0 victory, posting their second straight win by a shutout.

A week ago, the Lions stopped Flint River 49-0.

Friday night against Windsor Academy, the Lions improved to 2-2 with a dominating performance.

The Lions led 21-0 just eight minutes into the game and never let up.

Luke Vermilya scored on a 53-yard rush on the first play of the contest.

Quarterback Shep Hancock got into the act early, tossing two long touchdown passes to Kyle Reissleman. The first gave the Lions a 14-0 lead when he hit Reissleman on an 81-yard scoring strike.

Shamari Reid’s 8-yard run gave Trinity a 21-0 lead later in the first quarter.

After that, the Hancock and Reissleman combination worked again, this time on a 31-yard throw and catch for a touchdown and a 28-0 lead.

Zach Seymour added a 9-yard run, and Ethan Aldridge a 40-yard field goal right before halftime to give the Lions a 38-0 lead at the break.

The Lions scored just once in the second half when Cameron Hellgeth scored on a 1-yard plunge.

The Lions return home against Westwood next week.
