7th Graders Lose to Royals, Raiders
September 17, 2008 - Knightstown’s seventh grade football team has been playing well defensively, but the offense has yet to catch up. The young Panthers lost last week to Eastern Hancock 26-0, and fell in their opener to Shenandoah, 20-0.
Against the Raiders, the Panther offense suffered four turnovers and two occurred inside the Shenandoah 20-yard line. Knightstown defensive backs Drew Jessup and Levi Jessup played well in containing the outside run, while linebackers Luke Mattix, Jonah Elder, Kaulin Kern, Dillon Hendrix and Kyle Adkins also did a good job in shutting down the Raider running game.
Sam Pugsley had an interception.
Eastern Hancock’s passing game burned Knightstown for two long touchdowns. Offensively, the Panthers again struggled with four more turnovers.
Tailbacks Jonah Elder and Dillon Hendrix ran the ball well behind an improved offensive line of Nathan Luck, Adam Cunningham, Mitchell Chew and Ben Shepherd. Hendrix had an interception in the game.
The seventh graders play again Thursday against Driver. Kickoff is at 6 p.m.
