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.
