The Southwood Knights played themselves into the sectional championship next week by defeating Fremont 37-6 Friday in the sectional semi finals.
In typical Southwood fashion the Knights defense controlled the game while the offense went to work. The Knights would lead just 7-0 after the first quarter, getting a 1yd TD run from Gabe Lloyd with 2:32 left in the quarter. Fremont would respond with a bug play that went deep into Southwood territory before the defense made the stop. The Knights would give the ball right back on a fumble on their own 15 to end the quarter.
The Knights defense would rise to the occasion once more to get the ball back. Lloyd would immediately break loose on a long run before Alex Farr found Dawson Filip from 13yds away to take a 14-0 lead with 7:51 on the clock. On Southwood’s next possession Lloyd would waste no time, out running everyone for 72yds for a 21-0 lead. The Knights would tack on one more score before the break when Farr hooked up with Lloyd from 35yds away to lead 28-0 at the half.
Southwood woud go to their time eating offense in the third quarter, getting just one score that was a 23yd field goal from Jackson Simons to lead 31-0 with a quarter to go.
Just 14 seconds into the fourth quarter Logan Barley would score form a yard out as the lead grew to 37-0. Fremont would get the final score of the game with 4:16 remaining for the 37-6 final.
With the win the Knights will take on Adams Central next Friday for the sectional championship
