The Peaster Greyhounds’ varsity football team kicked off its 2019 outlaw schedule with a 27-2 win over the Willow Park Trinity Christian Academy Eagles Friday evening at home.
Peaster, which plans to join a UIL district in 2020, took a 7-0 lead in the first quarter, before adding another six points in the third quarter.
TCA’s lone points came in the same frame, with the team earning a safety to pull within 13-2 heading into the fourth quarter.
However, a 14-point fourth quarter by the Greyhounds proved a deciding blow against an Eagles team coming off its first 11-man state championship.
Peaster sophomore quarterback Zane O’Donnell did well in the squad’s opener, going 6-of-13 for 184 yards and three scores.
The Greyhounds’ offense also got a solid outing from freshman running back Tramar Gilbert, who finished with seven rushes for 78 yards as well as three catches for 110 yards.
Senior tight end Logan Gilbert added 79 receiving yards on two catches for Peaster.
The Greyhounds play the Arlington Newman International Academy Warriors in a non-district game at 7:30 p.m. Friday on the road.
TCA hosts the Valley View Eagles in a non-district game at 7:30 p.m. Friday.
