Triad surges past Cedarville

Triad quarterback Trent McIntyre wasn’t about to let a throbbing ankle keep him on the bench. Not after an injury had knocked his brother Tre out for the season several weeks ago. And not when his team was in a playoff fight with Cedarville.

The trainers wanted to splint his ankle after it was injured on a tackle early in the second quarter of a scoreless game. He refused and limped off the field with help. On the sideline they brought ice, but he didn’t want that either. So he got up, got the ankle loose and came back after Doug Lowe had thrown a touchdown pass for the game’s first score.

Then McIntyre and his teammates made plays, Cedarville missed opportunities and Triad emerged with a closer-than-it-looks 28-7 victory Saturday in the Division VII Region 26 quarterfinals. The Cardinals (11-0) face Sidney Lehman Catholic in the next round.

McIntyre’s biggest play came when he was intercepted by Caleb Coe on the last play of the half. Coe stepped in front of a short pass at the Cedarville 40 on a hook-and-ladder play and took off for the end zone. McIntyre had just enough angle to bring Coe down inside the 5-yard line and preserve a 7-0 halftime lead.

“I thought there’s no way I can let him tie it up,” McIntyre said. “And I knew I could catch him.”

After Cedarville (7-4) had been stopped on a goal-line stand in the first quarter, the interception was the play the Indians needed. But like so many opportunities the Indians had, this one didn’t pay off either.

“That was a hell of a play by Trent,” Triad coach Payton Printz said. “That was just tremendous heart to not let him score.”

Triad took control in the third quarter on McIntyre’s 16-yard touchdown pass to Steven Feasel and McIntyre’s 47-yard touchdown run. McIntyre completed 11 of 16 passes for 85 yards and ran for 74. Chaz Adams rushed for 107 yards on 16 carries.

Cedarville, which was led by Coe’s 164 yards on 37 carries, converted a fourth down and drove to cut Triad’s lead to 21-7 on Coe’s 1-yard run. The Indians drove again to the 6, but Hudson Grant’s short pass was intercepted by Adams at the 2 with 5:10 left. Triad added a late score after a Cedarville fumble.

“We didn’t get that touchdown in the first quarter and that hurt,” Cedarville coach Jason Christian said. “We had to get that one. But they did a lot of good things, and they never gave up.”
