Knights Score Late To Top Whitko

The Southwood football team carried their momentum from last Friday’s exciting win over Wabash onto the field Friday against Whitko, scoring in the fourth to grab a 21-20 win over the Wildcats for their third straight win.

The Knights grabbed the lead in the first quarter when Joseph Brinson picked up a Whitko fumble and raced 52 yards for a score and a 7-0 lead.

Whitko would do all the scoring in the second quarter, getting a touchdown on a 10 yard run and a two point conversion to lead 8-7 at the half.

The Knights would answer the Whitko 8 point quarter with one of their own in the third when Carson Blair connected with Jeffery Finicle on a 28 yard scoring strike, then find Finicle again for the two point conversion to grab a 15-8 lead.

Whitko would test the Knights in the fourth, scoring twice to go up 20-15, but the sophomore duo of Carson Blair and Peyton Trexler would answer the call, hooking up from 10 yards out to grab the 21-20 lead and hang on for the win.

  1. The whole team did an awesome job! Hats, or rather, helmets off to Brandon Frazier on his many tackles & recovery of a fumble from Whitko. Great work by coach Snyder & his staff!
