Mistakes and offensive struggles made for a frustrating night for the Knoxville Football Squad against Winterset as the Panthers fell to the Huskies 14-12 last night. Knoxville once again seemed to grab momentum as Jared McClung scampered 67 yards on a quarterback keeper to put the Panthers up six/nothing. That was the halftime score, however Winterset would come out in a wildcat offense and dominate the second half scoring two touchdowns to take a 14-6 lead. Knoxville would come back to get to within two points when McClung found Trent Davis in the end zone for the score, the two-point conversion was no good and the ensuing onside kick was recovered by Winterset to seal the game away. Coach Troy Rider said not only was the offense not it usual self, but mental mistakes cost his team. Knoxville was led on the ground by Tanner Dunkin with 48 yards on 19 carries, McClung was 7/16 for 126 yards and a touchdown. Knoxville is now 0-3 on the season and 0-1 in the district and will host Pella next Friday.
