TALLAHASSEE - In a matchup of two of the state's top two teams, the Godby Cougars jumped out to a 21-0 first-quarter lead and cruised to a 42-6 victory over the previously unbeaten Trinity Christian Conquerors at Gene Cox Stadium in Tallahassee on Friday night.
The Trinity Christian (5-1) defense started the game by forcing back-to-back three-and-outs, but a personal foul penalty against the Conquerors' punt return unit gave Godby (5-1) new life midway through the first quarter.
With new life on the possession, senior quarterback J.T. Bradwell brought Godby down the field, biding his time in the pocket before scrambling to hit wideout Tavis James for the game's first points.
On Godby's next possession, receiver Anthony Simmons broke free of the Trinity Christian secondary and sprinted under a Bradwell pass for another Cougar touchdown. Bradwell completed five of eight passes for 144 yards and two touchdowns in the first half alone.
With a 14-0 lead in hand, the Godby defense forced a turnover on the Conquerors' first offensive play of the ensuing drive, as Jacob Pugh stripped the ball from Trinity tailback Jalin Buie and dashed to the end zone for another Godby touchdown. The Florida State commit's defensive score gave Godby a three-score lead at the end of the first quarter.
Late in the first half, Godby running back Kenny Young broke free for a 60-yard touchdown run, his first of two scores on Friday night. That made the score 35-0 before senior receiver Isaiah Ford put Trinity on the board with a 27-yard touchdown catch from Jaquez Riles. Despite the Conquerors' late score, Godby entered the halftime break with a 35-6 edge.
In the second half, the Godby defense finished what the offense started, intercepting Riles for a second and third time. De'Eric Culver, a Louisville commit, pulled down two of his team's three picks to help Godby stay in front by a comfortable margin. Young capped the scoring early in the fourth quarter with his second rushing touchdown of the night.
For Trinity, Buie carried the ball 14 times for 59 yards - all in the first half - but was unable to find the end zone.
