A back-and-forth game turned into another Trinity blowout on high school football's opening night Friday.
The Shamrocks shook off a first-half deficit to dominate Brentwood Academy in the second half and win 52-23 for their 26th consecutive victory.
Trinity trailed 23-17 in the second quarter but scored 35 consecutive points to end the game.
Brentwood Academy scored touchdowns on plays of 20, 71 and 69 yards in the first half but had only 14 total yards in the third quarter and only three second-half first downs.
Brentwood Academy defensive back/wide receiver Jalen Ramsey, whose 69-yard touchdown reception put the Eagles ahead 23-17, said he takes little consolation in hanging around against a team that some polls have ranked No. 1 in the country.
"That's not what we go for at BA is competitive games; we go for wins, and it clearly didn't happen, so we've got to regroup," said Ramsey, a Southern Cal commitment.
D'montre Wade's 71-yard first-quarter TD run and Max Staver's long TD pass to Ramsey helped the Eagles lead 23-17 with 9:06 left in the second quarter.
Staver, who is committed to Florida, missed on his first four passes of the second half, and the Eagles never crossed midfield in the third quarter. He finished 10-of-24 passing for 153 yards.
