Butler 38 Troy 7

What a difference a week makes.

As "on" as the Trojans looked last week in their first win of the season over Sidney, that's how "off" they looked tonight against the Butler Aviators. Missed tackles, dropped passes, turnovers, name it. They played hard, and at times they even played well, but they just couldn't put anything together. The defense couldn't get off the field when it needed to, and the offense couldn't get much going. The Trojans' lone score of the night came when a muffed punt by Vandalia gave them the ball in the red zone.

So. The less said about this one, the better. Now it's Piqua week, as the Trojans (1-8) and their northern counterparts (4-5) get set to meet for the 130th time, with Troy looking for their first victory in the series since 2010. No conference titles are on the line, no playoff spots, nothing but pride. A win in this one would be a sweet way for the Troy seniors to end their careers, and the rest of the boys to go into the offseason.
