8th Graders Crush Centerville, 32-8
October 8, 2008 -Knightstown eighth grade football thought it might get one of the toughest tests of the season when the team hosted Centerville last Thursday. But that wasn’t to be.
The young Panthers ran their record to 6-0 on the year with a sound 32-8 thumping of the visiting Bulldogs. Knightstown came out of the gates quickly and led 24-0 at the end of the first half.
The Panthers got things started when Tommy Masters recovered a fumble and Jordan Jessup carried the ball across the goal line for the first touchdown. Knightstown three more times in the second quarter.
Todd Cleek had a 54-yard touchdown run. Justin Mann recovered a fumble for the Panthers, and Jessup covered 62 yards on his second touchdown jaunt of the night.
Cleek connected with Dakota Smucker on a 36-yard passing play. With 10 seconds left in the first half, Jarrod Souders caught a 46-yard touchdown pass from Cleek. That made it 24-0 at the break.
Centerville got its lone score of the night in the third quarter to cut the lead to 24-8. But Knightstown responded with a seven-play drive that was capped by a 20-yard touchdown run by Andre Loveall. Jake Carter ran the ball in for the two-point conversion.
Knightstown finished the game with 240 rushing yards, led by 112 from Jessup. Cleek passed for 82 yards in the game.
The boys visit Triton Central on Thursday and close their season Oct. 16 at Tri.
