Sometimes it’s hard to believe Triton is the same team it was in 2016.

After recording a 1-7 conference record in 2016, the Trojans set themselves up this year for a second place tie in the Hoosier North Athletic Conference after defeating Knox 14-12, improving from their third place finish last season.

Coming out in the first quarter, Triton forced three fumbles — recovering all of them, put up 14 points and recorded 70 offensive yards.
