Trinity Lutheran gets 2nd straight win

Trinity Lutheran jumped out to an early 7-0 lead Friday against host Edinburgh, and the
Cougars pulled away for their second win of the year — and their second straight — 36-16.

The Lancers bounced back from the early deficit to take an 8-7 lead after the first quarter, but Trinity Lutheran scored two more times in the first half en route to the win.
