The North Webster Knights hit the road for a district clash with Bastrop without a win to show for their hard work this season.
That changed over the course of 48 minutes, as the Knights offense piled up yardage and points, while the defense pitched a second-half shutout to preserve a precious 41-22 victory.
The Knights started the scoring on their first offensive play as running back Braedon Robertson scored from 65 yards out. After a quick stop by the defense, North Webster got right back to work, scoring their second touchdown on a nice play action pass from 20 yards out to tight end Xander Thomason.
Next to get in on the scoring was Cooper Sanders who took a sweep going right, made a man Miss and left the rest of the Rams in his dust for a 60 yard score.
Sanders would add a second long touchdown before halftime and senior Collin McKenzie launched a deep ball to sophomore J’Kobe Lawson for the teams final offensive touchdown early in 3rd quarter action.
The game was put out of reach when the Knights defense stepped up with a huge forced fumble that senior Jalon Thomas picked up and raced into the end zone for a defensive touchdown.
The Knights will aim to make it two in a row next week as they host Lafayette Renaissance Charter Academy for senior night.
