For the second straight week, the Trumbull football team put away a game early with an explosive first half.
Don Cherry scored two touchdowns in a 35-point first half as the Eagles coasted to a 35-8 victory over Fairfield Ludlowe in a contest delayed by lightning.
Last week, Trumbull (2-0) built a 33-0 halftime lead en route to a 47-13 victory over Westhill.
On Friday, sophomore Nick Roberts started at quarterback for the Eagles, replacing Brendan Moore, who was injured last week. Roberts passed for 130 yards and three touchdowns.
After scoring a safety, Cherry's 9-yard TD run put the Eagles ahead 8-0. Cherry then hauled in a 68-yard TD strike from Roberts to make it 15-0 after the first quarter.
In the second period, Roberts tossed TD passes of 34 and 28 yards to Adam Bissell, sandwiched around a 69-yard TD run by Michael Uus.
After building a 35-0 halftime lead Friday, the Eagles played their reserves in the second half.
Fairfield Ludlowe, which droped to 0-3, avoided the shutout with a safety and a late 6-yard TD run by Stephen Scholz.
