It was clear from the start what kind of day it would be for the Trinity Knights when they hosted the Ojai Valley Spuds on Saturday at Ojai Valley High School.

Trinity scored midway through the first quarter on a 5-yard touchdown run from Spencer Klehn, and the Knights never looked back in a 50-6 rout that last just three quarters.

After Ojai Valley (0-1) scored with time running out in the third quarter, “The refs came over and said they were not going to continue because they were out of players,” said Trinity head coach Mike Buchanan.

The contest came at a good time for the Knights, according to Buchanan, as it afforded Trinity a chance to rest some players ahead of what he calls their biggest game of the season next week against Heritage League rival Desert Christian.

“Ryan Brooks and Colton Oshiro did good jobs at quarterback. Klehn played good and the defense has been playing strong,” Buchanan said. “We haven’t given up more than 13 points in a single game yet. We’re coming into the biggest battle of the year, and quite possibly the highest ranked team in our league apart from us on Friday at West Ranch at 3:30 (against Desert Christian). It should be a flat out battle.”

On Saturday, though, it wasn’t much of a battle for the 4-1 Knights.

Trinity overwhelmed an Ojai Valley team playing just its second game of the season.

“They had talent among those seniors but we were five games deep and are starting to hit on all cylinders,” Buchanan said.

Klehn finished with 10 carries for 114 yards and a touchdown. Nick Spinello ran nine times for 110 yards, including a 65-yard touchdown run and added an interception. Brooks added 108 passing yards and a 34-yard touchdown to Caleb Durst. Oshiro was 1-for-1 passing with a 9-yard touchdown, and intercepted a pass.
