Trojans ground game pummels Port Angeles in 48-14 victory

Junior running back Trent Feistner led the charge with 320 yards and two touchdowns

EAST BREMERTON — The Trojans have been the walking wounded in recent weeks with their quarterback, top playmaker and top running back all sidelined with injuries.

That meant it was junior running back Trent Feistner’s night to be a difference-maker, and he was electric. Feistner carried the ball 20 times for 333 yards and two touchdowns in a 48-14 win over Port Angeles that temporarily puts the Trojans along in first place in the Olympic League.

The Roughriders had a tough time bringing down Feistner, a 5-foot 9-inch, 150-pound back. He used his speed, vision and elusiveness to consistently break off big runs, including the opening score a game, which was a 45-yard dash down the left side line after maneuvering his way through his offensive line’s blocks.

“He’s a little energizer bunny,” said Olympic head coach Sal Quitevis. “He has really good vision and you add the quickness to it. He’s shown an extra gear this year that we haven’t seen before.”

Feistner was the star, but he also had some support. Cameron Bailey, the team’s bruiser, scored three touchdowns and picked up 88 rushing yards on ten carries, providing the thunder to Feistner’s lightning. Bailey also had two receptions for 13 yards.

“The offensive line did an amazing job,” Feistner said. “I can’t emphasize that enough. We have a great line this season.”

The Trojans got off to a slow start in a penalty-filled first quarter, but once they got into rhythm, there was no doubt about the outcome. Freshman back Alvah Fanua put Olympic up 14-0 with an 8-yard touchdown in the second quarter, and then after a Greysen Dagsaan-Phillips interception, Feistner broke off a 37 yard run that set up Anthony Turso’s 1-yard score on a quarterback sneak.

Bailey then added a 2-yard touchdown to give the Trojans a 27-0 lead at halftime.

“We take what we’ve got every year and go with it,” Quitevis said. “This year we’ve been able to run the ball.”

With only three playoff spots available to the Olympic League this year, every game is going to be a big one from here on out. It looks like Olympic will be battling with Bremerton, which crushed North Mason on Friday 52-19, North Kitsap and Sequim for the postseason berths.

And the Trojans will get to go head-to-head with all three of those teams over the next four weeks. First up is a game on the Olympic Peninsula against Sequim. A win there would push their league record to 4-0; while that might not guarantee anything, they would certainly be in good shape heading down the homestretch.

“We can’t let it get in our heads,” Feistner said. “We have to go out there, work hard at practices and then go get it done.”
