CHARLES CITY — Waterloo East found four different ways to score Friday as the Trojans began district football play with a 41-13 triumph at Charles City.
It was the second straight victory for East, which snapped an 18-game losing streak a week earlier at Newton.
The Trojans used their passing game for their first two touchdowns. Dylan Reyes connected with Tyrell Newman for a 10-yard TD in the opening quarter, then hit Ramir Scott for a 30-yard score in the second.
Kjuan Owens ran for the next two touchdowns, one in the third period and one in the fourth, as East stretched its lead to 28-0.
It grew again when Chase Niles picked off a Charles City pass and returned it 56 yards to the end zone. Then, after the Comets (2-3, 0-1) scored on Ian Collins’ 75-yard kickoff return and Trimel Christian’s 56-yard run, Scott capped the scoring with a 75-yard kickoff return of his own for the Trojans (2-3, 1-0).
Owens finished with 97 yards in nine rushing attempts for East, Reyes completed 11 passes in 21 attempts for 105 yards and Newman led the receiving corps with four catches for 34 yards.
