After a scoreless first quarter the Southwood Knights put on a show for three quarters in a 44-6 win over Eastside in their sectional opener Friday.
As usual the Knights defense was up to the task, shutting down their opponent. After a scoreless first quarter the Knights would be full steam ahead. With 10:50 left in the second Gabe Lloyd would score from a yard out to put Southwood up 7-0. The defense would then hold before blocking a punt for a safety and a 9-0 lead. Eastside would answer with a 69yd pass play to make it 9-6 after Jackson Simons blocked the extra point. Back came the Knights offense, marching down the field with Lloyd crossing the goal line from 2yds out to lead 16-6. The defense would then join the scoring when Braden Barney picked off a pass and raced 50yds for a touchdwon and a 23-6 lead at the half.
The Knights would get their first score of the fourth quarter through the air when Alex Farr hooked up with Carson Rich from 26yds away to increase the lead to 30-6, then get a 16yd run from Lloyd to make it 37-6 after three.
The lone score of the fourth was a 15yd pass from Farr to Logan Barley as the Knights rolled 44-6.
