Excitement was in the air and the homecoming crowd was eager to see their Trojans win. What unfolded was a 43-6 loss to a good football team. From the opening kick-off, Canby dominated. The Lancers completed only one pass all night, but they didn't need anymore. Canby controlled the line of scrimmage and ran the ball for 342 yards. Only once did the Trojan defense stick a Lancer runner behind the line. Canby did few things wrong in the first half. Ball control offense and a stifling defense put the Lancers on top 28-0 at half-time. Ortonviile continued to play hard throughout the contest, despite the score. In the third quarter, just as it seemed Canby would score again, Jason Kellen intercepted an errant throw near the Trojan goal line. Canby still managed to put up nine points in the third quarter with a field goal and a touchdown. The point after was missed on the touchdown. As the tearng moved into the fourth quarter, the score was 37-0. Ortonville's lone score started on an innocent looking run beginning at their own 25 yard-line. Jason Kellen took the handoff to his right shedding would be tacklers as he made his way to the sideline. It seemed Kellen was finally cornered and was on his way down, but he spun out of the grasp of a couple Lancers and it was a sprint to the goal line. The crowd rose to their feet and voiced their approval and appreciation for the Trojan team who I SW I l 0A ! .o.

Canby added another score near the end of the game to make the final 43- 6. In the closing moments of the game, Alex Dawald sparked the Trojan offense with a couple nice passes getting the ball deep into Lancer territory. But the clock ran out on the Trojans who will try again for the season's first victory on Friday as they travel to Tyler to play R-T-R.
