Father Tolton Catholic and five-star recruit, Michael Porter Jr., were in complete control from start to finish as the Trailblazers cruised to a dominating 67-21 victory over Versailles Thursday night.

Porter Jr. wowed the Versailles home crowd with dunk after dunk and finished with a game-high 21 points in only three quarters of play.

Father Tolton (13-2) jumped out to a big lead early and led 27-9 after the first quarter. However, the Trailblazer defense was even more impressive, holding Versailles to just two points in the second quarter. Father Tolton held a 42-11 advantage at the half.

With the game easily in hand, the Trailblazers took the majority of their starters out after the third quarter and the Father Tolton bench kept Versailles scoreless in the final eight minutes of play. The Trailblazers have now won seven straight games.

This Saturday, the Trailblazers travel to Kansas City with a much tougher test against Blue Valley Northwest in the Best of the Midwest Showcase. Tip off is scheduled for 8:30 CST.
