The Trojans used the momentum they had built from the defensive side of the ball and had an opportunity to put more points on the board before the half.
Camden’s offense didn’t do much in the first half as they were forced to punt on three consecutive drives. The two schools seemed to mimic one another as both schools traded fumble recoveries too.
