The Varsity Knights dropped their first game of the season, a disappointing loss to Excelsior Springs, on the road. While the Knights lost the game, there were many positives to take away. Offensively, Southeast was able to move the ball with relative ease. Defensively, the Knights were able to contain the Tigers’ option heavy offense. In the end though, the Knights were unable to convert a critical 4th down late in the 4th quarter, down 28- 25. After the failed conversion, the wind left the Knights sail, and Excelsior Springs tacked on a couple late scores.
The Knights are in action Friday, August 31 against Lincoln Prep @ 7:00, Bryan Field.
