Trojans usher in Lowman era, top Indians 41-16

Trent Lowman's first football game as a senior football player at Bandys High School happened to be against St. Stephens.

Only fitting his first game as a Trojan head coach was against the Indians.

Bandys pulled together an impressive 41-16 victory over St. Stephens on Friday, successfully ushering in the Trent Lowman era.

"I was proud of our kids" Lowman said of his team's effot. "I thought we played well, but I still think we have some things to work on before we play Foard next week."

Early on the game was very competitive with both teams exchanging offensive possessions.

Bandys quarterback Logan Beegle broke open the scoring in the contest on a 39-yard pass to Jeremy Carr, putting the Trojans ahead 7-0 with 1:06 to play in the opening quarter.

Trojan running back Quiante Derr owned the second quarter, who scored two in the stanza, including a 5-yard touchdown run and a 19-yard pass from Beegle.

Bandys led 27-0 at halftime.

The Indians got on the scoreboard in the second half when running back Janarion Knox scored on a nine-yard run.

Carr added two more touchdown catches in the second half from three and 75 yards out to put a stamp on Lowman's inaugural win as Trojans coach.

Lowman and the Trojans go for 2-0 next week when the host Fred T. Foard.

St. Stephens tries to bounce back and give first-year head coach Wayne Hicks his first when when the Indians host Bunker Hill.
