The Cardinals improve their record to 3-1 overall and start OHC play at 1-0. The Irish drop to 0-4, 0-1.
Young, who led the area in passing last season and was honorable mention all-district, missed the first three games of the season at quarterback because of a broken thumb on his throwing hand.
The senior standout made up for lost time Friday by completing 16-of-26 passes for 250 yards and two touchdowns. He also had 62 rushing yards and two more scores on 11 carries.
“It was awesome to have Colton back under center,” said Triad head coach Payton Printz. “He enables us to throw the long ball and has been a leader for us all year. To have him back doing what he does best, which is running the offense, is nice to have.”
