It was the convergence of all things good when you think of the “Big Game”. It matched the # 1 team in the state rankings against the # 2. It was an opportunity for Trinity to answer for their two losses to eventual state champion St. Xavier in 2009. It was a beautiful fall evening with over 34,000 fans in the stadium to see this annual match up. It was Friday Night Lights as it was intended to be. It also turned out to be the “Perfect Storm” for defending state champions, St. X.
It all began on the second play from scrimmage when ‘Rocks cornerback Ryan White caused a fumble on a lateral in St.X’s backfield at the 5 yard line and senior linebacker Brandon Weyhing picked up the loose ball and scampered into the end zone for a touchdown. It was all downhill from there for the Tigers. By the half, Trinity led 27-0 over a shell shocked St. X football team.
The second half proved that the Trinity first half onslaught was no fluke. Continued direction of the very effective Shamrock offense led by eventual Rivalry Series MVP, Travis Wright, would post a 48-0 win, the largest margin of victory ever in the series and the first shutout in this game since 2002. The trophy presentations were made again at midfield to a very happy and energetic Trinity team.
