Andrick Sanchez got a safety in the first quarter, putting the Knights up by two while the Cougars failed to score. The Cougars had a rough night and didn’t make a mark on the scoreboard until the third quarter.
In the second quarter, junior wide receiver Carter Currans went wide and caught a 25-yard pass from quarterback Nick Labat. Brandon Wait ran in the two-point conversion.
Wait came back after halftime, scored a five-yard touchdown and again got the two-point conversion, putting the Knights up 18-0.
The biggest threat to the Knights was Cougar junior Eli Samuelson at quarterback. He played a key role in every point the Cougars scored and in the third quarter threw an 11-yard pass for the first Cougar touchdown.
Labat came back in the fourth quarter and broke free for 52 yards and a touchdown. Then he threw to Sanchez in the end zone for the two-point conversion. The Cougars’ Samuelson ran in a 43 yard touchdown himself and the Cougars got the two-pointer as well. For the Knights, Carter Ibberson ran six yards for a touchdown.
With time running out on the clock, Samuelson came into possesion of the ball again and threw a 53 yard pass for a final touchdown and ran in the two-point conversion, but the Knights were too far ahead to change the outcome.
