North Webster runs over Richwood 28-6

Journal Staff

North Webster’s defense and special teams continued to be dominant and the offense continued to ride red-hot running back Braedon Robertson en route to a 28-6 victory over Richwood. 

The Knights (3-1) are now winners of three straight and 1-0 in district play. 

After a pair of offensive drives stalled out, Knights senior Avante Curry blocked a punt and returned it 20 yards for the games opening touchdown. 

After another quick stop by the North Webster defense, the Knights got back to work, moving down the field behind some tough running from Robertson, who cashed in with a beautiful 25-yard score featuring 3 broken tackles. 

The Knights third scoring drive got going with a 40-yard completion from quarterback Christian Whitlock to junior speedster J’Kobe Lawson getting the offense into Ram territory. Two Robertson runs later, North Webster led 21-0. 

The second half opened with Richwood going on their only scoring drive of the night, covering roughly 6 minutes of clock, before North Webster went on a long drive of their own, but came up empty on a short field goal. 

The Knights made things right, earning another defensive stop and going on their final scoring drive of the game, once again cashed in by Robertson from 6 yards out. 

The Knights defense got another excellent performance from do-it-all senior Xavier McGlothan who had an incredible interception and plenty of tackles. The rest of the Knights defense harassed Richwood all night, coming up with four sacks and three turnovers.

North Webster returns home next week for a huge homecoming matchup against Wossman.
