The Troy High School football team dropped its first game of the season Friday night against District 7-B defending champion Eureka, 35-8.

Lions running back Chad Price rushed for 282 yards on 32 carries to power the Eureka attack. The Trojans also struggled with giveaways by committing six turnovers.

"Too many turnovers and too much Price," Troy coach Rich McElmurry said afterward.

Troy scored its lone TD with just 19 seconds left in the first half on a 5-yard run by Jake Alexander. On the two-point conversion, quarterback Mike Ormiston hooked up with Alexander on a pass.
