First, I want to say a gigantic thank you to Ryan D. Walston for getting me my all access pass, for all of the games.
This was my third trip to Lucas Oil Stadium and the 2nd covering games, for the great site known as PAFOOTBALLNEWS. This was the third game of four and one of two that I was really looking forward to. Even with this one getting ugly quickly, I was able to enjoy it. I got to see two more teams for the first time and though in defeat it was great to see Batesville fight for all four quarters.
Sixteen second into the contest the Knights got a 41 yard completion , when Adam Dixon connected with Reese Willoughby. Dixon was a man-child in this one. Unofficially I had him 19-28 good for 3 touchdowns. Dixon reminds me somewhat of Lexington Catholic quarterback Beau Allen, who has signed with Kentucky. On fourth and four, Dixon found Andy Dixon to move the chains. The seven play, sixty four yard drive ended on a Dixon to Jake Black touchdown. That same combo converted a two point play, making this an 8-0 game just 2:31 seconds going off of the clock. The Knights added another score at the 3:03 mark, when Willoughby hauled in a Dixon pass for a 25 yard score. Mitch Manford missed the P.A.T. keeping this a 14-0 game. The Knights defense would get a big sack on Travis Lecher at the 1:19 mark with Austin Ashcraft doing the honors.
At the 8:11 mark of the 2nd quarter Will Yauch picked off a Lecher pass to give South Dearborn the ball, but one play later Dixon fumble the ball and making the recovery for Batesville was Sam Bowman. After settling down and getting the ball back the Knights offense got a 38 yard catch from Willoughby, a 20 yard catch from Black and the a 7 yard touchdown catch from Willoughby. The P.A.T. made this a 21-0 game, with 1:39 left in the half. The Knights would get another sack before the half ended, with Corbin Cassidy doing the honors.
Jy’lll Chappel of Batesville recovered what appeared to be an onside kick by the Knights and in doing so he received a thunderous hit from Baily Whitelock. The Bulldogs offense showed some life, when Austin Pohlman made like Eric Dickerson and picked up 40 yards on a sweet run. The drive fizzled out a short time later.
A little later in the third the Knights got a 38 yard run from Dalton Guthrie that set up another touchdown catch by Black. This time the Knights were in a Wing-T formation The P.A.T. was good again to make this a 28-0 game, with 6:38 left in the third. Uncle Mo, ended the quarter on the side of Batesville do to a fumble recovery by Braden Linkel.
Each team was able to score once in the final frame. First Guthrie would score on a 4 yard run to make this a 35-0 game, after the P.A.T. kick and for Batesville Pohlman rushed three straight times, with the last being a 2 yard score. The P.A.T. was good off of the foot of Braiden Foster to make the final score 35-7.
