FORT WAYNE – When: 1 p.m. Saturday
Where: Fred Zollner Athletic Stadium, Angola
Radio: 88.3 FM
2013 records: Trine 1-0, Elmhurst 0-0
Series: Elmhurst leads 1-0
Scouting report: The book on Trine was the book of truth in Week 1. With a veteran defense back and an offense missing some major pieces, the defense was expected to do the heavy lifting early, and that’s what happened at Manchester in the opener. The Thunder shut down a loaded Spartans team 19-3, surrendering just 47 rushing yards and 269 total. On offense, Austin Shoemaker was the spark, rushing for 87 yards and catching six passes for 36 yards. Quarterback Anthony Yoder chipped in with a 14-of-21, 144-yard, one-touchdown night. Elmhurst opens its season against a team it beat 31-13 in Elmhurst, Ill., a year ago.
