Knights Defeat Warriors

by Rick Hatfield

September 22, 2020

Despite a good effort from the Southern Cloud Warriors, the Lakeside Knights were able to run away from the Warriors for a 58 – 8 win.  The game was more competitive than the score would indicate.  The Knights got a kick return late in the contest and then added an interception pick six shortly thereafter to make the score more lopsided than it probably should have been. “I’ll take the blame for that last one, I should have just had Brennan kneel down, but they had just scored and I thought we should try to score.  My fault!” Said Coach Hatfield.

The Warriors did have some success against the Knights.  They rushed for over 100 yards with Colton Walters carrying the ball for 101 yards on 27 carries and Kye Chase chipped in with 22 yards on 6 carries.

The tackle chart was actually pretty good with Shane Williams getting 1 tackle and 1 assist, Brennan Copple getting 1 assist, Colton Walters made 12 tackles and had 5 assists and 3 of his tackles were for loss. Logan Haley had 1 assist, Kye Chase had 6 tackles and 2 assists with 4 of his tackles being for loss, one of Kye’s tackles was for a safety, the 1st in many years for the Warriors, and Dashawn Peterson had 2 tackles and 2 assists with 2 tackles for loss.

The bad stat was fumbles; the Warriors fumbled it away 4 times and had 9 fumbles over all.  “We have to stop making turnovers.  It turns close games into runaway games.  I did feel like we played with a lot of intensity out there.  The effort is there, we just have to quit making mistakes.”  Quoted Coach Hatfield.

The Warriors finally get some home cooking this week when they host the Pike Valley Panthers.  Game time is 6:00 PM.
