Edinburgh football falls at Traders Point

Edinburgh’s 4-0 start to the season now feels like a distant memory.

After back-to-back home losses, the Lancers hit the road Friday trying to regain some momentum and never found it, suffering a 35-7 loss at Traders Point Christian.

“Their quarterback’s pretty good,” Edinburgh coach Tyler DeSpain said. “There’s a reason he’s leading the state in passing yards.”

The Lancers (4-3) surrendered two touchdowns in each of the first two quarters to go into the half down 28-0. The host Knights triggered a running clock with another score in the third period.

Edinburgh averted the shutout when Jarrett Turner scored on a 2-yard run.

Turner rushed for 142 yards on the night to lead the Lancers, who threw the ball just five times all night.

With no game scheduled for next week, the Lancers aren’t back in action until Oct. 14, when they travel to Park Tudor for their regular-season finale. That gives DeSpain time to get some key players back from injury, including Caleb Dewey and Connor Ramey.

“We’re going to give our guys some time off, hopefully get healthy,” DeSpain said. “Get those playmakers back to help us.”
