Trojans triumph just down the road

It didn’t take long for Olympic Trojan sophomore running back Larry Dixon to make a name for himself.

Dixon compiled 272 total yards and scored once as Olympic’s youth dominated the neighboring North Mason Bulldogs 38-21 in the Trojans’ first road game of the 2007 season.

Dixon wasn’t the only Oly sophomore to make noise.

Sophomore quarterback Zach Bird completed six of his 11 passes en route to another 100 yards and three scores through the air for the Trojans, finding senior wide receiver Joey Johnston once for a touchdown score.

Sophomore wide receiver Blake Johnson also recorded a touchdown reception.

Fellow senior wideout Michael Ormiston got into the act when he caught a 10-yard touchdown pass in the third quarter.

In addition to Dixon, who racked up 252 yards on the ground and had a 20-yard reception, the Trojans (2-0) got a 17-yard, first-quarter score from Nollan Quinn.

In the third quarter, Ross Payne scored on a 15-yard scamper.

The Trojans also sacked Bulldog quarterback Daniel Baker twice and intercepted three passes. Johnson had two of those picks, while junior Deanzalo Thomas had the other. Dillon Matautia and Quinn recorded the sacks.

At 1-1, the Trojans are currently tied atop the 3A Division of the Olmpic League with Peninsula and Port Angeles.

Friday, the Trojans will host Klahowya in a match up of interdistrict rivals. Klahowya is coming off two wins and is currently the Olympic League 2A Division leader. Last year when the two team’s met, it was all Olympic en route to a 41-8 win. That game takes place at 7 p.m. at Silverdale Stadium.
