Lightning did not strike nearly enough for the Bluestone Middle School Trojans as they fell to 0-5 on the season with a 24-6 loss to Park View on Homecoming night at Bluestone.

Park View would jump out to a early 12-0 lead on two back-to-back short drives after the Trojans turned the ball over on downs on their first two possessions.

Da’Quan Barnes gave to Trojans an explosive change at the QB position driving the ball down the field with some spectacular runs to start their third drive of the game, only to have two costly penalties to stall out the momentum.

The Trojans’ defense was lights out in the second quarter, with several swarming tackles for losses that shut down some promising Park View drives. On the Trojans’ first possession of the second half, S’Mario Pettus led the team down the field to score their only touchdown of the game with a 38-yard run down the home sideline. That made the score 12-6.

Park View would add two more TDs in the third quarter on special teams play to close out the scoring before lightning flashes would ultimately end the game early in the fourth quarter. The final score was 24-6, Park View.

The Trojans close out the season next Wednesday against Cumberland.
