Joe Dell Williams, filling the role of quarterback, finds protection behind a blocker during the fourth quarter Friday.

Henrietta rumbled its way into the end zone twice in the third quarter against Windthorst Friday night, but could not over come a bone-jarring first half from the Trojans, 45-14.

Windthorst tallied 31 points in the first half, while holding the Bearcats scoreless.

Kolten Booher, coming off the sideline after receiving a concussion two weeks ago against Boyd, broke the scoring drought on a 65-yard run to put Henrietta on the scoreboard.

Henrietta’s Layton Webb recovered a fumble when Windthorst dropped the ensuing kickoff. The Trojan miscue gave Henrietta took possession at Windthorst’s 34 yard line.

Booher was pulled from the game as a precautionary measure after taking a hit to the head.

Crumpton finished with two receptions for 40 yards.

Windthorst lit up the scoreboard early, taking the opening kickoff 93 yards into the end zone. The trojans scored twice more in the first quarter – on a one-yard run and a 13-yard pass play – and kicked a 39-yard field goal to go up 24-0.

Windthorst scored once more in the second, on an eight-yard run, for a 31-0 lead at halftime.

In the third quarter, the Trojans scored on a two-yard run and an 11-yard pass play.

The staunch Trojan defense held Henrietta to five first downs, while Windthorst racked up 24 first-and-10s.
