SAN ANTONIO - Centre College probably to play needed its best game of the season to upset No. 12 Trinity. Instead, things couldn't have been much worse for the Colonels.
Centre gave up 16 unanswered points in the final 9:10 of the first half, giving Trinity all the momentum it needed to roll to a 52-7 victory in the battle for first place in the Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference.
"I just think they outplayed us," Centre coach Andy Frye said. "They've obviously improved since the beginning of the year."
Centre (6-2, 3-1 SCAC) allowed 506 yards, an average of 7.4 yards per play and a season high for a Centre opponent, while the Colonels' offense managed just 201 yards.
"We didn't do well in all three phases of the game," Frye said. "The kicking game wasn't very good, our offense played poorly and defensively we didn't hold them."
