Fairfield falls to Albia in season debutTrojans held Blue Demons scoreless in the 4th quarter
The Trojans wound up with 76 yards of total offense and turned the ball over three times.
That completely tells the story of what happened Friday at Trojan Stadium.
Fairfield lost to eighth ranked Albia 47-0.
The Trojans fumbled the opening kickoff, resulting in the Blue Demons taking over at Fairfield’s 22 yard line. It took Albia seven plays to get in the end zone for the first time. From there the rout was on.
“Albia is a good team and you can’t make the early turnovers like we did,” Fairfield head coach Mike Schenck said.
Albia quarterback Brett Leshon threw for 106 yards and two touchdowns. Ryan Sarver rushed for 138 of Albia’s 295 rushing yards and scored two touchdowns. Matt Baker punched in two touchdowns as well.
“We will use the pass or run depending on what is needed,” said Albia coach Jerry Staton. “With the score the way it was, we just wanted to work on our running game.”
Fairfield running back Nick Jackson rushed for 55 yards on 13 carries. Vince Horras caught two passes for 15 yards.
Kooper Dahlstrom recorded a sack and Jonathan Hoehne led the Trojans with 6.5 tackles. Zane Richmond was second the team with four.
Fairfield travels to Davis County for its second game of the year.
