Knights pick up lone county win

by Gary Andrews

The Southwood football team did something Friday night they haven’t done since 2008, win on opening night. Running in to the Southern Wells buzz saw the last few years the Knights had revenge on their mind. Trailing 16-14 at the half the Knights came out inspired in the second half, putting up 15 points in the third quarter and flexing their muscle on defense for a 29-22 win.

Nathan Hollars would get the crowd in the game right off the bat with a 51-yard kickoff return to the Raider 29. With some opening night jitters the Knight offense stalled. On Southern Wells second possession and driving the ball, Austin Schlemmer would recover a fumble for the Knights, giving them good field position and some momentum. The Knights would start at the 45-yard line, scoring seven plays later on a Hollars 25 yard scamper to lead 7-0 with 6:07 to go. The Raiders would counter punch, scoring with 2:48 remaining in the first quarter and led 8-7 after one.

With both defenses dominating, Southern Wells would strike first in the second quarter, picking off a Robbie Cole pass for a 74 yard score, going for two again and led 16-7 with 3:23 to go. The Knights would keep the ball the remainder of the half, mounting a drive from the 41, with Hollars scoring a second time with 4.5 seconds left. Zach Hobson split the uprights again and the Knights trailed 16-14 at the half.
