 7th Grade Wins First Game of Season, 14-6

October 22, 2008 - Fullback Luke Mattix was an unstoppable force and the Knightstown offensive line provided plenty of holes in the Tri defense as the Panther seventh grade football team defeated Tri, 14-6, for its first win of the season.

The young Panthers used the running of Mattix to pound the Tri defense the entire game. Mattix scored both of the Knightstown touchdowns and added a two-point conversion. His offensive line of Chad Shock, Austin Craft, Adam Cunningham, Mitchell Chew, Nathan Luck and Dillon Henderson all did an outstanding job of blocking.

Quarterback Sam Pugsley ran the offense well, and Knightstown’s defense did not allow the Titans to get anything going offensively. Drew Jessup, Brennan Harper and Levi Jessup were all cited by coach Joe Peggs as playing very well. The lone Tri score came on a punt return for touchdown.

The Panthers finished the season with a 1-7 record.

 

Knightstown lost to Triton Central on Oct. 9, 12-0. Mattix ran the ball well for the Panthers, but the Tiger defense was a strong unit. Levi and Drew Jessup played well for the Panthers defensively. The Tigers scored on one big play at the beginning of the game, and again on a punt return.
