J Quincy loses to Modoc Second,half battle costs Trojans season opener James Wilson Sports Editor sporls@pl u The Quincy Trojans opened their season last Friday night with a home game against Modoc. The Trojans looked hot. They had the speed, they gained the yards and their possession was equ to Modoc's. Some slip-ups in the third quarter ultimately cost them the game, however. Modoc, which took down Chester in overtime the week before, beat out the Trojans 26-7. Quincy's running game looked good, but Modoc completed more passes that gained it major yardage. Aaron Race scored the fin'st and only touchdown for Quincy during the second quarter. Race also kicked the extra point to give Quincy its seven points for the game. Modoc scored one touchdown in the second quarter, but missed the extra point. Quincy entered the second half up 7-6 and the prospect was looking good. That's when everything started to fall apart for the Trojans. Right offthe bat, Modoc scored a touchdown. Then another. Then another. Within 10 minutes of play, Quincy went from leading by one point to trailing by 19. Quincy made some valiant comeback efforts, but wasn't able to complete any of its drives.
