District play starts tonight for the Knoxville Football Squad. The Panthers are 0-4 on the season and last week they lost to Fairfield 29-28. Knoxville got a jolt of confidence last week and should get another shot in the arm with several players coming back this week that have been unavailable the first four weeks of the season. Creston is the opponent and Knoxville will face a team that has won all four of its first games of the season, but had to come from behind last week against Gilbert. Knoxville Coach Matt Dunkin tells KNIA/KRLS Sports the defense will have to stay alert, but is looking forward to the match up.
Dunkin: “Just making sure that backers are readying that play, and they’ll take us to the play so just have someone to fill that gap. They have some big boys on the line, but our guys are looking forward to that match up on Friday.”
Knoxville also has in the back of its mind what happened last year in Ken Locke Stadium when Creston came in and made it look easy in a 49-0 win. This is just the 4th meeting between Creson and Knoxville with Creston winning all three. Live coverage from the home of the red and black Panthers will begin on 95.3 KNIA at 6:30, kick off is earlier this week at 7:00.
