The Gold Standard
Fort Knox, KY | October 24, 2016
Change can often be a good thing.
For the Fort Knox Eagles, change is a great thing.
Junior running back Kaylon Luster rushed for 165 yards and two touchdowns on 15 carries, and four others scored at least one touchdown as the visiting Eagles picked up their first win of the season by beating Class 1-A, District 2 foe Caverna, 48-22 Friday night.
Senior Camron Gore rushed for a touchdown and caught a 28-yard touchdown pass from senior quarterback Jacob Roewe, while sophomore running back T.J. Pittman added 45 rushing yards and a touchdown.
Senior tight end Kieran O’Gallagher also scored a rushing touchdown, and junior Maleeq Walters returned an interception 90 yards for another score.
Fort Knox (1-7) snapped a seven-game losing streak and assured itself it will be no worse than the No. 3 seed in the state playoffs.
The Eagles also have a shot at the district championship, but they would need to beat Bethlehem and have winless Caverna (0-8) knock off Campbellsville for that to happen. Fort Knox scored more points Friday than it had all season combined up to then.
