Trojans take down Centerville in wild 46-31 thriller


Baumann’s third touchdown, from three yards out, followed Brent Jackson’s 35-yard field goal to extend the Trojan lead to 39-31. Looking for a score to tie the game, Felton instead found Fairfield’s Alex Christensen who ran 60 yards untouched after the interception for the final touchdown of the night to clinch the Trojans’ third straight win.

Fairfield (4-4, 3-3) will step out of district next Friday for a matchup with Chariton. The victory, and the 15-point margin, means the Trojans will make the playoffs if either postseason-bound Centerville (4-4, 3-2) loses to sixth-ranked Washington or Keokuk falls to Fort Madison next Friday.

“I got to give a lot of credit to my teammates,” Baumann said while standing next to Vince Horras, who caught two touchdown passes from the freshman. “Guys like Vince are so great. He’s so tall. It’s great to play with guys like that.”
