 5-6th Grade Gridders Win Sugar Bowl 27-13

October 29, 2008 - Rusty Campton's 5th and 6th grade football team finished the season on a high note by beating Hagerstown in the Sugar Bowl, 27-13. Knightstown dominated both sides of the ball.

The team had a good balanced attack of passing and rushing. Logan Whitaker connected on two passes in the game that covered 47 and 38 yards to Kordell Prescott and Jake Kwisz, respectively. Kwisz, Zach Fields and Sam Peck controlled the game on the ground. The offensive line did not allow a sack and opened huge holes in the defense throughout the game. Dakota Reed, Nolan Hagy, Josh House, Tyler Helderbrand, James Oldham and Curtis White provided the protection for the Knightstown team to put up 27 points.

Knightstown scored on a nice run by Jake Kwisz, followed by a pass from Logan Whitaker to Jake Kwisz for the extra point. Then Whitaker scored on a quarterback sneak behind a great block by Dakota Reed.

Whitaker then hit Prescott for the extra point on a nice pass to the corner of the end zone. Zach Fields scored on another strong run. Whitaker connected again on a nice out pattern to Kwisz for the extra point.

Sam Peck scored the final touchdown on a hard run up the middle.

This was the first game all year that Bob Reed's offense put all three running backs in the end zone in the same game. Campton's team finished the year 6-1, with their only loss coming the prior week to Tri, 25-21 in the first annual darkness bowl.

The Knightstown teams clearly were the class of the league this year, combining for a record of 13-1 on the season. The other Knightstown team, the Panthers, went 7-0 and won the league title.

Congratulations to both teams on a great season and for representing Knightstown with great character and sportsmanship.
