The Kirksville Knights scored at will Saturday afternoon as they pulled away from an over-matched Life Church Lions squad 68-21. The game was never in doubt as the Knights scored the games first ten points, but it was never as pretty as one might expect. Hampered by a “no fast break” rule that was ordered by the coaches, the Knights managed plenty of shots and rebounds.
Chance Britt led the Knights with 22 points followed by Peter Willis’ 15. Jonathan Rider, started the season with a 3-pointer, added 11 while Ross Noe tallied 8. Titus Fansler, the team’s lone senior, added 6 points as did Austin Stroud.
The Knights play Thursday (November 12) at Sunnydale. Last year the Knights swept the Sunnydale squads.
