John Malloy and Kyon White-Royal each scored two touchdowns to help lead the Palmer Trinity Falcons to a 45-22 win over the Palm Glades Eagles.

Nico Casares threw three touchdown passes, Jose Corbo had 112 total yards with a touchdown and intercepted a pass, and Dylan Dylewski intercepted two and recovered a fumble for the Falcons (6-1).

“It was a tough game,” Palmer Trinity head coach Mark Reese said. “We pulled away and the score got away at the end, but they did a lot of stuff that gave us problems. I think our kids hung in there, didn’t give up, and played hard. Palm Glades has a really good football team. We just did a couple more things right than they did.”

Palm Glades (3-4) was led by Khymani Martin, who rushed for 168 yards on 14 carries with touchdown runs of 43 and 65 yards.

Martin’s first touchdown run gave the Eagles a 6-3 lead. After Corbo’s 9-yard touchdown run, Martin found the end zone again for a 14-10 lead.

Malloy then had a key sequence to help turn the game in the Falcons’ favor. After dropping a pick in the end zone, Malloy intercepted the next pass and returned it into Eagles’ territory. He then capped the drive with a 14-yard touchdown reception for a 17-14 lead just before halftime.

Malloy’s score was part of 35 unanswered points for the Falcons, who led 45-14 in the fourth qtr.

“We’ve got to be more disciplined, which is something I was disappointed in because I feel like that’s something I’m big on and a lot of things just fell apart,” Palm Glades head coach Robert Green said. “I felt we were better athletically than the other team and we just weren’t disciplined enough. Coaches had a little disagreement on the sideline, which didn’t help things at all, and there were some bad calls by the refs, and that’s every year there.”

Martin was held in check in the second half with 39 yards on eight carries.

“That kid can play,” Reese said. “I was happy they stopped giving him the ball as much.”

Palm Glades was plagued by mistakes after their early lead as Marvin Williams threw three of the team’s four interceptions and Ben Smith fumbled on a fake punt in addition to allowing four plays over 20 yards after the break.

“I really feel we beat ourselves,” Green said. “I had to suspend two coaches, that’s how horrible it was.”

Palmer Trinity will look to carry over the momentum into Friday’s pivotal Class 3A game at Westminster Christian (7-0).
