8th Grade Boys Win 43-30
February 11, 2009 - Knightstown’s eighth grade boys basketball team received point production from 11 different players in crushing Connersville 43-30 recently.
Coach Mel Matlock was able to use his entire roster of 14 players in the blowout victory. Knightstown hit 20 field goals in the game, compared to just 11 for the Spartans. The Panthers came out firing early, building an 8-2 first quarter lead and expanding that to 20-10 by halftime. The lead stretched to 19 points at the end of the third quarter.
Dakota Smucker, Justin Mann, Layne Olsheske and Anthony Peck all nailed field goals in the first quarter and the young Panthers held Connersville to a single field goal in leading 8-2.
Nic Rayburn got into the action in the second frame, drilling a three-pointer and adding another field goal to score all five of his points in the game. Smucker hit two more fielders, Tommy Masters and Walker Titus scored and Knightstown used the 12-6 run to take a double digit lead at the half.
The Panthers blew the game open in the third quarter with a 15-8 run. Six different players scored in the third frame, led by a trey from Grant Kennedy and four points from Andre Loveall. Smucker, Mann, Olsheske and Masters also scored as Knightstown opened up a 35-16 advantage heading into the final six minutes of action. Dusty Littleton and Zack Neal got into the action with fourth quarter buckets as the Panthers closed out the easy win.
