Trojans get homecoming win

FAIRFIELD – The Fairfield Trojans picked up their first district win and second overall with their 52-21 homecoming win over Mount Pleasant in football action Friday night in Fairfield.

The Trojans used three ‘special’ efforts to dominate the Panthers.

Fairfield's swarming, gang-tackling defense stopped the visitors 10 times on plays for negative yards, recovered two fumbles, and intercepted three passes.

Trojan senior Jonathan Hoehne picked up 157 yards on returns as he led the special teams.

But the top ‘special’ effort might have been turned in by freshman quarterback Cameron Baumann. Baumann, starting his first game, led the Trojans with 87 yards rushing, three rushing touchdowns, and passed for three more scores.

“He’s gotten reps in practice all year, so we didn’t have to put anything in special for him to run,” said Fairfield coach Mike Schenck. “We weren’t surprised at how well he played.”

The Trojans came up with their first interception on the first pass thrown by Mount Pleasant. Jordan Whitney’s pick gave Fairfield great starting position at the Mount Pleasant 45-yard line. Alex Christensen led the Trojans down the field with 33 yards rushing, but it was a 10-yard run by Baumann that ended the six-play drive.

After the Panthers fumbled on its first play of its second drive, the Trojans went 63 yards in just six plays to go up 14-0. The touchdown came on the first of Baumann’s scoring passes. He hit Vince Horras with a 22-yard pass for the score.

One of the factors in the early going that hurt Mount Pleasant was that the visitors wasted pretty good field position. Only one of the Panthers’ seven first half drives started deep in its own territory.

The Panthers would only take advantage of the final two. By then, Fairfield was already in control of the game.
