Tuesday, Jan. 5, the Charlotte Trojans traveled to Falls City for their third game of the season.

The Trojans fell to the Beavers 46-29.

“Anytime you lose a ball game it stings. The long delay has affected our ability to get in a rhythm as a team and to find our identity,” said Head Coach Israel Aguero. “We are going to keep on practicing and playing hard to get on track. We will continue to work on our fundamentals to get the results we want,” said Aguero.

The Trojans were losing at the half 27-15.

“We got off to a good start and have led after every first quarter of the year. We just weren’t consistent enough for the rest of the game,” Aguero said. “During the game, we started off being the aggressor but we fell off. Overall, we need to find a way to crash the boards, stop turning over the ball, and keep pushing the pace.”

“The loss didn’t feel good at all,” Anthony Romo said. “We had a whole lot of momentum in the first and couldn’t finish with the same thing. We just lost it to turnovers and simple rookie mistakes. We plan to work harder during practice. I believe we still have a lot of work to do.”

Romo led the team with 17 points and two assists. Damian Vallejo followed with 5 points.

The Charlotte Trojans game against Sabinal was cancelled due to COVID.

They traveled to La Pryor on Tuesday and will travel to Stacey on Friday, Jan. 15.
