Trinity Meets Powerhouse Roman Catholic in Early Season Match Up

If you’re striving to be among the best, you have to play among the best.

As Trinity football aims to elevate its game this year, the Shamrocks stepped up to an early-season task against powerhouse Roman Catholic, a 5A school from Broad Street in Philadelphia.

The Week 2 match-up at Camp Hill’s Siebert Park on September 2 proved a tall task for the Shamrocks, who fell 41-14 to a big and powerful Cahillite team. Roman Catholic’s defense stifled the Shamrocks from the get go, and their rushing and passing prowess launched them to a 27-7 lead at halftime.

Trinity’s two touchdowns on the night came in the second and fourth quarters; the first was a 57-yard hit from quarterback Caleb Wray to Tanie Young, and the second a 20-yard strike from Wray to Trey Weiand.

Despite the loss, head coach Jordan Hill sees the early season challenges – including a Week 3 non-conference loss to number 2 Wyomissing – as building blocks for a Shamrock team that wants to strengthen its game by stepping up to tough opponents.

Trinity, now 2-1 after a season-opener win against Delone, 35-7, looks to position itself with battle-tested abilities as it enters Mid-Penn Capital Conference play this weekend.
