ERWIN -- From the opening possession, Triton made its presence felt on defense and took advantage of the sputtering Southern Wayne attack, 41-7, in the Eastern Carolina 3-A Conference opener for both squads Friday evening.

The Saints received the opening kickoff and quickly went three-and-out, which set the tone for the first half.

"We gave them a short field and they put us behind early," said Saints head coach Bob Warren. "The first three drives of the game we gave them good field position and before we knew it, it was 21-0."

Tyshawn Vann scored the Saints' lone touchdown in the fourth quarter.

Southern Wayne (2-5 overall, 0-1 ECC) visits North Lenoir on Friday.
