Knights To Re-Group For Valley Lumberjacks
After taking one on the chin from top-ranked Magnolia, the Tyler Consolidated Silver Knights must get back to work and prepare for the upcoming battle with Valley.
The Knights still have a chance to extend their season but they must put the Blue Eagle game behind them and win out to accomplish that goal.
The Silver Knights are still a good football team and must shake off the loss to Magnolia and take care of business.
Coach Walton and his staff will no doubt work hard this week to prepare a game plan. St. Mary’s loss to South Harrison was a good indication that the Silver Knights can still be a contender.
It also provided some much needed bonus points.
After quarterback Jordan Baker went down, the Knights lost some of their spark on offense while the defense spent too much time on the field.
The Knights looked like they could move the ball on Magnolia but found themselves plagued by turnovers, penalties and poor field position.
Fede Perez showed he can be a legitimate scoring threat for the Knights as he knocked through two field goals.
Tyler Anderson was held scoreless for the first time this year as the Blue Eagles defense had two to three players keying on him every time he touched the ball.
The Knights will bounce back with a big win on the road against the Lumberjacks on Friday.
If they can then go to Oak Glen the following week and put another one in the win column, there could very well be a rematch down the road.
One thing for sure, if given the the chance, the boys from Kidwell will give it their best shot.
Friday’s score- Tyler Consolidated 28, Valley 14.
