 5-6th Grade Gridders Get Two Wins

October 1, 2008 - Rusty Campton's Knightstown defense provided its third shutout in a row keeping by dominating Tri last week and leading the fifth and sixth grade football team to a 32-0 win over the Titans.

Coach Bob Reed's offense was on a roll, putting up five touchdowns in the game. The scores came on two runs from Zach Fields and another run by Jake Kwisz, who got a great block from Christian Beabout. The other two touchdowns came on passes from Logan Whitaker to Kwisz and Kordell Prescott.

Knightstown scored on two conversions on a pass from Whitaker to Prescott and a run by Zach Fields.

The offensive line of Josh House, Dakota Reed, Tyler Helderbrand, James Oldham, Kaleb Davis and Nolan Hagy provided great blocking all game long. The defense was highlighted by great hits by Kwisz, Adam Bundy, Sam Moore, Tristan Trueblood, Robert Richmond and Jason Dishman.

 

Knightstown’s 5th and 6th graders handled their toughest opponent to date on Sunday, giving up the first points in four games on a pass play from Hagerstown's offense. The young Panthers picked up the 12-6 win to improve to 4-0.

Knightstown's Zach Fields took the opening kickoff down to the 10-yard line on a dazzling run, with great blocking from the return team. He then took it into the end zone on a nice run to get Knightstown on the board.

Fields also scored the only other touchdown by Knightstown on a nice 40 yard run. It was a tough defensive fight from that point on. On Hagerstown's final drive, the Knightstown defense stepped it up and shut them down on four consecutive plays. Dakota Reed had a sack, Zach Fields stopped a run and Logan Whitaker stuffed a sweep to the outside. Then the hit of the game came on a pass down field, when Jake Kwisz crushed the Hagerstown receiver on a last ditch effort to get the first down. In a show of good sportsmanship, Logan Whitaker was advised to take a knee by coaches Bob Reed and Rusty Campton to run out the clock.
