Trinity beats St. Xavier in Kentucky 6A final behind Rondale Moore's big game

(Courtesy Lexington Courier Journal)

LEXINGTON, Ky. – St. Xavier High School made it a game this time, but Rondale Moore ended up owning it.
The Trinity High School senior produced 293 yards of offense, scored three touchdowns and wrapped up his case to win Kentucky’s Mr. Football award while leading the Shamrocks to a 38-21 victory over rival St. X in Sunday’s Class 6A championship game.
A crowd of 9,791 at the University of Kentucky’s Kroger Field saw Moore – a University of Texas commit - show why he’s among the nation’s most coveted recruits in the Class of 2018.
“That’s the game plan: You have a thoroughbred, you have to ride him,” Trinity coach Bob Beatty said. “He did not disappoint. He was nicked up a little bit with an ankle (injury), but he fought through it. We talked about it at halftime: ‘There’s no tomorrows. You don’t have to worry about Monday’s practice.’ He was fabulous.”
Moore helped Trinity complete its second straight 15-0 season – the first time that’s happened in Beatty’s 18-season tenure – and win its 25th state title overall. That’s the most in state history, two more than Highlands’ 23.

Trinity also continued its recent dominance of its archrival, beating St. X for the 14th time in the past 15 meetings. The Shamrocks beat the Tigers 28-0 in the regular-season matchup on Sept. 29.
“I knew it probably wasn’t going to be a shutout this time,” Beatty said, “but we persevered through it and played very well.”
While Moore was leading the rushing and receiving duties, senior Nick Bohn was his usual steady self at quarterback, completing 19 of 26 passes for 286 yards and three touchdowns. He finished the season with a completion rate of 79.7 percent, besting the national record of 75.1 percent set by Leslie County’s Tim Couch in 1994.
Bohn also was intercepted twice but said he didn’t let it affect him.
“I had to let that go,” Bohn said. That’s how we came out with the W.”
St. X quarterback Jack Albers completed 9 of 22 passes for 196 yards and two touchdowns and also rushed for 50 yards and a score on 24 carries. But Albers also was sacked five times and the Tigers managed just 79 rushing yards on 45 attempts (1.8 yards per carry).
Trinity’s Ethan Hull and Arak McDuffie both had two sacks, and McDuffie finished with 4 ½ tackles for loss.
“We did a lot of things that we wanted to do,” Tigers coach Will Wolford said. “I’m very proud of the way we fought in the second half, but the second quarter we didn’t capitalize on the opportunities we had and (Trinity) did.”

Albers’ 26-yard touchdown pass to Will Crum gave St. X (12-3) an early 7-0 lead before the Moore show began.
Bohn connected with Moore on a 62-yard touchdown pass to tie the score at 7, and less than 3 minutes later Moore broke loose for a 93-yard touchdown run that made it 14-7 with 1:49 left in the first quarter.
“I just saw a hole and made one cut and used my speed and went to the end zone,” Moore said.
Albers’ 35-yard touchdown pass to Ben Mueller tied the score at 14 early in the second quarter before an offensive onslaught gave Trinity control.
Bohn sandwiched a pair of touchdown passes to Nick Strothman around a 3-yard touchdown run by Moore, giving the Shamrocks a 35-14 halftime lead.
Bohn said Moore’s presence in the offense allowed him to prosper at quarterback.
“He’s the best player in the state and deserves Mr. Football over anyone,” Bohn said. “I don’t care what anybody says. He’s an All-American.”
Albers’ 13-yard touchdown run pulled St. X within 35-21 with 6:42 left in the third quarter. Jude Carlon’s interception of Bohn gave the Tigers a chance to pull closer, and they drove to the Trinity 4-yard line. But after three runs resulted in a net loss of 1 yard, Albers’ fourth-down pass was incomplete.
Trinity answered with a 24-yard field goal by Sebastian Mata that made it 38-21 with 10:05 left.
The victory gave Beatty his 13th state title during his Trinity tenure and improved his record in state finals to 13-2.
“I always talk about, ‘Who’s the best team? The next team,’” Beatty said with a smile as his players celebrated around him. “Right now, those guys are the best team.”
* The Kentucky Football Coaches Association announced its Class 6A honorees at halftime, with Ryle running back Jake Chisholm named Player of the Year and Scott County’s Jim McKee named Coach of the Year.

I'm pullin' for Ged and his boys to beat Aledo, big task at hand.

 

Aledo was played surprisingly close last week. Maybe they're human after all? lol

If Lone Star gets by Legacy, a Lone Star vs Aledo matchup would be well worth seeing.

Huskie – two undefeateds. I don't even want to try to pick that one. Give me Muenster, simply because its closer to me. lol

I'll be working Temple vs Manvel, rematch of their Regional Final from a year ago, which Temple won 24-23.  With enrollment numbers released this week, this will probably be the last meeting between these two schools as Temple should be moving up to 6A and Manvel dropping to 5A II.  Should be a great game to watch.

I don't see anyone stopping Manvel. So much offense they don't even need a defense. lol

Temple seems to be making a habit of these late season runs.

Hope someone on the staff keeps an eye on Newton Eagle team, Class 3A, Division II Region III.

2019 class RB Darwin Barlow. Has an offer from Baylor. In tonight's game, first play from scrimmage, 9-yard TD.  Newton is crushing Waskom.  207+ rushing tonight for Barlow. The game is final.

2020 class, TE/DE James Sylvester also has an offer from Baylor.

2019 class CB/WR Tamauzia Brown is a stud. Has offers from Baylor, Lamar, Ok-State, So. Miss.  On 247 Sports, prediction is 100% Longhorns. Horns 247 writer EJ Holland must know something.

Final
NEWTON  45
Waskom   6

If it's Boling, Newton will play against an Alabama recruit at Texas Drive Stadium off Hwy 59, at New Caney next Fri night, for the right to get to the State Final.

Manvel 49 Temple 34

Manvel's defense turned 4 turnovers into 21 points and QB Kason Martin (North Texas) threw 2 TD passes and ran for 2 more.  Temple closed to within 42-34 midway through the 4th quarter, but Manvel answered with an impressive drive to seal the deal.
