A close game…or so they expected. Friday night’s game against Providence Day proved to be anything but the expected tough matchup. After a close first half, the Knights pulled away. Providence Day could not match their skillset, speed, or stamina. After an entertaining 48 minutes of play, the game ended in our favor: 52-14.


After a lone field goal in the first quarter, senior Terrelle Brown burst onto the scene in the second quarter and scored two touchdowns. With a 24-7 lead going into the second half, fans were hopeful, but no one could have predicted the sheer domination that would follow. After senior starting running back Justus Woods was pulled for the second half, two players promptly stepped up: sophomore JB Awolowo and junior Josh Eboboko.


This year, everyone is accustomed to seeing JB score on defense, but on Friday he gave a little “blast from the past” to all the fans who remember his breakout season on offense last year as he caught a pass and ran into the end zone.


Josh immediately took over the running game after finding out Justus would not return. He continued to show what he is known for –  good, consistent play. He carried the ball 22 times for 149 yards and a touchdown in the third quarter.


The fourth quarter was all about the underclassman, and not surprisingly, freshman Henry Rutledge and Chip Kasay are once again worth mentioning. They both scored one touchdown.


It was sophomore LJ Brown’s interception and 24-yard return for touchdown that ended up being the icing on the cake.


After that, the Knights successfully completed their mission: win the conference championship and clinch the first seed.


It’s good news for all the fans out there because this week’s upcoming playoff game will take place at home. As always, we hope to see everyone there. Go Knights.
