FULTON â Triton football coach Rodney Younis wanted a quick start from his young team.
He got that on offense, but his defensive unit spent much of the its season opener trying to catch up with Caston, and the Comets pulled out the victory 28-20 at the Comet Crater.
âCaston is a solid, physical team,â Younis said. âWe just couldnât slow down their offense in the first half. We made some adjustments at halftime and things got better, but we were behind all night.â
