DETROIT — It was only fitting and proper that the players' colors that adorned the field were maroon, white, and blue under the red, white, and blue of Old Glory standing firmly at half-mast. As the announcer asked the fans, players, officials, coaches and all others involved to pause in remembrance the lives lost and the events of 9/11.

Just after one minute and 59 seconds of play, with a profound play, the Eagles had scored their first and last touchdown.

The trade off between Trojans Michael Morris and Timmy Cook, back after injuries, made them unstoppable with a 31-8 final over the hosting Detroit Eagles.

With 15 seconds remaining in the first quarter, the Trojans made their first touchdown of the night.

The first two minutes of play were riddled with personal fouls along with the last minutes of the game. The Eagles earned a rare double penalty, that sent them back 25 yards.

At the end of the first half the score was Trojans 14, Eagles 8. With 4:21 left to play in the third quarter, the Trojans scored a field goal bringing the score to 17-8 Trojans. The clock ticked down to seven minutes left to play in the fourth quarter Trojan Rodney Hobbs scored one of two touchdowns in that quarter.  Trojan exchange student Daniel “Cancun”  Degetau ran the ball for a 30-yard gain.  Hobbs finished tacking on a TD to bring the final score to Cumby Trojans winning, 31-8.

As the Cumby helmets were held high, players resounded, “Family on 3. 1-2-3- FAMILY!”

The Trojans will have another road game Friday, Sept. 18 against Simms Bowie before hosting Future Trojans Night against Maud on Sept. 15.
