Fort Knox | October 11, 2018
The Fort Knox Eagles went on the road and pulled out a double overtime victory over Webster County. This was a big victory for two reasons. One, it ended a two-game slide. Two, it give the Eagles some momentum going into the final three weeks. The Eagles have a chance to close the season with four straight wins as they have remaining games against Caverna (1-6), Bethlehem (2-5) and Louisville Shawnee (0-6). Fort Knox could get five wins for the first time since 2003. It would be a big step for the program under first-year coach Wes Arnold.
Fort Knox senior Jerome Jones rushed for 81 yards and three touchdowns on 13 attempts.
Fort Knox junior Kalob Petty made a 26-yard game-winning field goal.
THEY SAID IT
“I looked at Kalob and said, ‘Can you make that.’ He told me he could so we sent them out there and he could have made it from 40. He’s only been with us about four weeks, but he’s become a huge weapon for us.” — Arnold said of his conversation with Petty before the game-winning kick.
