The Trojans suffered a historic defeat at the hands of the Porvoo Butchers; the team has never been beaten that bad during its 27-year history. A part of the blame goes to unusually adverse conditions though. The Trojans played their third game within a week due to a rescheduling of the Jaguars game and against no less than the number one team in the league. There should be no excuse for the league for making any team, let alone a battered and injury-ridden one, play with only a few days to recover.
There was virtually only one team on the field. During the first three quarters the Butchers scored on every single drive. They scored twice on the very first play of the drive and once on the second play. The Trojans advanced the ball only 15 yards rushing and 106 passing. The Butchers accumulated an astronomical figure of 644 yards altogether.
The other two games were defeats as well. The Trojans lost the Jaguars game 12-28 and the Rajaritarit game 7-23. They no longer have a fighting chance to appear in the playoffs, but in case they refuse to give up they can avoid ending up at the bottom of the league ladder.
