ST AUGUSTINE ---The Trinity Christian Conquerors fired on all cylinders in Friday's season opener at St. Augustine, as the Conquerors scored touchdowns on five of their first six possessions and forced five turnovers en route to a 40-0 victory over the Yellow Jackets at Brumley Stadium in St. Augustine.
After Trinity won the toss and deferred to the second half, the Conqueror defense forced a fumble on the Yellow Jackets' first possession. The turnover turned into a game-opening score, as quarterback Kevin Toliver II (committed to LSU) took it himself on a quarterback keeper to give Trinity a 6-0 lead.
Toliver, earlier in the week, was named a Rivals Five-star for the class of 2015
The next time the Conquerors had the ball, standout receiver Isaiah Ford made a big play - as a quarterback. The left-handed ford dropped back and found Chris Barr in the end zone for a touchdown pass on the Conquerors' first pass attempt of the night.
On St. Augustine's next drive, it was the Trinity defense's turn to crack the scoreboard. Defensive end Jeffrey Holland forced his way into the backfield for back-to-back sacks, turning the second into a long fumble return touchdown to give Trinity a 21-0 lead. Holland forced the issue throughout the first half, generating three sacks over the first two quarters.
From that point on, a combination of stifling defense and big plays by Toliver and Ford allowed Trinity to build on its advantage. Tolliver connected with Ford for three touchdowns, as the Louisville] commit scored on each of his three receptions.
The Conqueror defense kept the shutout intact in the second half, as Trinity generated a total of five turnovers, including interceptions by both David Crowley and Justin Davis.
