Trinity Beats Highlands in a Shootout

2010 Preseason Scrimmage: Highlands 42 Louisville Trinity 49
Date/Time: Friday, August 13 at 7:30PM
Location: Highlands High School

Kentucky's two prep football juggernauts squared off in the year's only preseason scrimmage for both teams. Class 6A Louisville Trinity defeated Class 5A Fort Thomas Highlands 49-42. The scrimmage was played under a regular-game format. The game, which was predicted by many to be a defensive struggle, became an offensive shootout. Trinity quickly advanced to a 14-0 lead in the first quarter. Highlands, led by quarterback Patrick Towles, running back Corey Compton and wide receivers Daniel Gold and Austin Sheehan on offense, battled back to cut the Shamrocks' lead to seven points at halftime. The Bluebirds managed to tie the game at 35-35 in the third quarter following a Towles rushing touchdown. However, the 'Birds were never able to take the lead and Trinity's defense stopped a Highlands drive late in the game to preserve a 49-42 victory.

This scrimmage was part of the Northern Kentucky Football Coaches Association's 2010 Tom Potter Classic.
