Playoff football – is there anything better? Well, probably state championship football. We’ll have to let you know this Friday. That’s right, the Knights are back in the championship.


Christ School traveled three hours, hoping to win the first round of the playoffs and advance to the championship. However, after a 52-12 defeat, their dreams were cut short.


“It was their turn to take the trail of tears back home,” said senior Chris Lohoff-Gaida.


In order to pull off this win, both offense and defense had to be at the top of their game…and they were.


Junior quarterback Garrett Shrader accounted for 365 total offensive yards and 4 touchdowns. In the first quarter, he threw a pass high into the air straight into the hands of junior Ricky Kofoed to put the Knights on the board first. Seniors Justus Woods and Terrelle Brown also scored in addition to junior Josh Eboboko.


On the other side of the ball, the defense had one of their best nights yet. Junior Blake Long led the team in sacks with 2 ½ of the 5 total. Christ School’s quarterback was also picked off three times.


This week is it. The final game of the year versus Providence Day at home on Friday. The Knights are carrying a three-year championship drought but are more determined than ever to prove they are the kings of Sardis Road.


“It’s gonna be a good one,” said junior JT Killen.
