Wildcats win final home game

Eustis-Farnam came to town to challenge the Big Blue for the final regular season home game on Oct. 13

The Knights got off to a great start when they recovered a fumble on the opening kickoff. Their first offensive play resulted in a 26-yard touchdown run. A successful 2-point conversion gave them an early 0-8 lead.

Wallace had pictured a better start to the game but they didn’t let the rough start get them down. Their offense took the field, intent on making a statement. 

Quarterback Jared Sullivan demonstrated his running skills on the drive with a 22-yard run followed by a 28-yard touchdown run. Micah Swedberg tacked on the extra 2 points to tie up the game.

The Knights got a great kickoff return and then proceeded to move the ball all the way to the Wildcat 13-yard line. A holding penalty backed them up so on a second-and-23 their QB went to the air. Swedberg intercepted the ball.

The Cats took advantage of the situation. Logan Rosentrater started the drive with a 25-yard run. Sullivan capped it off with a pass across the middle to Swedberg for a catch and run TD and a 14-8 lead.

After five minutes of offensive highlights, it was time for some defensive excitement. The Knights ran the ball on the second play of their drive and Rosentrater was able to strip the ball from the runner to give the Cats the ball on their own 19-yard line. 

Wallace was able to get decent yardage on a screen play and a couple of running plays. They made their way into Knight territory but they fumbled the ball.
