MANCHESTER - It was perhaps the biggest play in Saturday's Division II game between Trinity of Manchester and Plymouth, and it came early in the third quarter.

Trinity was trailing by 14 and faced a fourth-and-two situation from its own 11-yard line. Trinity elected to go for the first down, but the Plymouth defense held and handed the ball to its offense deep in Pioneer territory.

Three plays later Plymouth quarterback Collin Sullivan scored from 4 yards away to help the Bobcats build a 21-point lead en route to a 35-14 triumph.

Plymouth halfback Jared Kuehl carried the ball 25 times for 182 yards and three touchdowns, two of which came in the fourth quarter. He scored on a 3-yard run with 3:52 to play and on an 11-yard run with 3:36 left. Silas Murray capped the Plymouth scoring with his fifth point-after kick.

The victory raised Plymouth's record to 4-0. Trinity, which had scored at least 30 points in each of its three previous games, dropped to 3-1.

Trinity's touchdowns came on Carmen Giampetruzzi's 1-yard quarterback sneak with 10:39 left in the fourth quarter, and Saikou Bah's 44-yard run with 2:00 to play. Bah also added the two-point conversion following his touchdown.

Giampetruzzi's TD was set up by a Plymouth fumble that gave the Pioneers possession on the Plymouth 29-yard line.

Plymouth led 7-0 after one quarter, 14-0 at halftime and 21-0 entering the third.

Plymouth's first-half touchdowns came on Kuehl's 9-yard run on Plymouth's first possession, and a 23-yard pass from Sullivan to tight end Kyle Reisert with 3.2 seconds left in the half.

Plymouth's only other first-half possession ended with a missed field goal from 32 yards.
