CLEVELAND, Ga. Blessed Trinity rolled to a 30-0 victory last Friday at White County, the Titans' third win over the Warriors in the past two seasons. The Titans won both games last year, the second coming in the first round of the Class AA playoffs.

"Our defense was awesome," Blessed Trinity coach Tim McFarlin said. The Titans limited White County, which came into the game 3-0, to 121 yards.

The victory was the 100th for McFarlin in his career as a head coach, most of them coming during his stint at Roswell.

The Titans (2-2) had 315 yards of offense, rushing for 214. Milton Shelton led the BT ground game with 140 yards on 15 carries, including a 75-yard scoring run. Quarterbacks Conor Davis and Chris Keegan both scored touchdowns, with Davis passing to tight end Jared Porter for a TD.

The Blessed Trinity defense also got on the scoreboard with a quarterback sack in the end zone for a safety in the first half, as the Titans built a 23-0 halftime lead.

The Titans open their Region 6-AAA schedule Friday at home against Woodward Academy (3-1). Six teams are expected to compete for state playoff spots from 6-AAA, with BT's five main region opponents a combined 17-3 in non-region games thus far.
