The Pleasantville Trojans opened up Class 1A District 7 play Friday night, and once again swallowed another tough loss; this time from Panorama of Panora 47-0. It has been the second time this season the Trojans have been shutout. The Panthers opened up the scoring with a 55-yard touchdown run, and the scores just kept coming from there.
The woes also continued for Pleasantville,as they were without their starting fullback Kendel Clark – who was sidelined by strep throat – while a number of other athletes were weakened by injury or illness as well.
The Trojans also still had chances to put some points on the board with a fumble recovery that sparked the Trojan offense, and a kickoff return that D.J. Weaver that was caught deep inside their own territory and returned inside the Panther 45 yard line.
Overall Coach Koerselmen was proud of the Trojans for not giving up and playing hard every down. You can catch a delayed broadcast of the Pleasantville Trojans and the Panorama Panthers on AM 1320 KNIA at 1:00 p.m. Sunday Afternoon.
