After last week’s victory over Munster, the Trojans went into the Homecoming game against Lowell with lots of confidence, but came up short.

After last week’s big win, head football coach Pete Koulianos said, “I think the biggest thing that the team took away from this win (against Munster) is the idea that they can actually compete in the conference and beat teams that they haven’t traditionally beaten.”

Senior Dean Foundos said,“I think (our win against the Mustangs) is going to bring a lot of momentum forward in the season. It’s obviously a big game to come in and win, especially not at home.”

Highland went into Friday’s game with another advantage: Lowell’s star player senior Ethan Igras was injured.

Despite this setback, Lowell’s head coach remained hopeful.

“Here at Lowell, we just close ranks and move forward,” said head football coach Keith Kilmer.

Koulianos was cautiously optimistic.

He said, “Ethan being out on offense certainly hurts Lowell. I will say, however, that John Aleisia is a capable back-up. For us, the strategy has not changed; we have to stop their run game and find a way to score when we are on offense.”

Despite their efforts, the Trojans lost Friday night, with the final score of 7-0, after Lowell’s touchdown in the first quarter.

Senior Steven Niemann said that he wished the game would have gone better, especially with Highland going in with as much confidence as they had.
