    How about Trenton’s schedule and who did it play to earn its 13-0 record? Out of class 1A, Trenton played a weak 3A school with a 3-7 record and an small independent with a 1-9 record. Overall, Trenton’s opponents have a combined losing 66-72 record. This includes twice playing 10 win Lafayette and a 9-4 Newberry team, which makes up 29 of those 66 wins.

    Now, Trenton won’t be a push over because it can score points. However, Trenton’s 13-0 record is a bit suspect and is really no better than our Chiefs’s. Trenton didn’t play two 5A playoff teams or an 4A school with an 8-2 record. Our Chiefs just need to play their game Friday night and that championship trophy will be Northview’s!
