Varsity Football
The game started with a bang when Trinity returned the opening kickoff to take a 7-0 lead. We responded quickly and decisively as we fielded an onside kick, and Kyle Perez punched it in to make it 7-7. By the end of the 1st quarter, we had taken control of the game with a 21-7 lead thanks to solid defensive play and rushing touchdowns from Jordan Triplett and Kyle Perez. In the second quarter, we added two more scores when Thomas Veal ran for a touchdown and Jordan Triplett added one more before the half to make the score 35-7.

The third quarter would see much of the same as Jordan added two more rushing touchdowns, while Amauri Mountain and Hamp Thompson also scored rushing touchdowns and brought the third-quarter score to 62-7. The fourth quarter was focused on controlling the clock and letting our younger guys get playing experience. I thought our younger guys did a great job as well.

On the night, our offense amassed 442 yards while our defense only allowed 73 total yards and -8 rushing yards. We rushed for 398 yards and passed for 44 yards. Our rushing game was strong as Jordan rushed for 222 yards on 16 carries, while Kyle, Thomas, Amauri, and Hamp all had over 35 yards or more during the game. Again, these runners couldn't run the ball this well if our offensive line (Zach Powell, Sam Norris, Jacob Triplett, Delon Spencer, Garrett Squire, and Will Thompson) didn't do their job with great execution. They often go unnoticed, but these guys work extremely hard and have become the cornerstone of the team this season.

On the other side of the ball, our defense seems to show up and shut the other offense down regularly. The defense is only allowing 9.66 points a game and less than 50 yards rushing a game. It has been a total group effort, and these guys seem to be getting better and better each week. We hope to continue our solid play this week against Bulloch. The key for us will be to protect the ball and not give up any big plays on defense. If we do that, we have a good chance to pull off the upset. Hope to see everyone there!

Go Knights!

FA 36 | Heritage 28

It was good to be on the court last Tuesday night. We opened up against Heritage at home with a win. We had a slow start scoring in the first half. We missed a lot of easy shots but played good defense. The girls were a little nervous at first but settled down in the second half. I was proud of the effort they displayed. Madysson Patron and Sophia Price were the leading scorers with 13 points each.

Go Knights!

FA 56 | Heritage 18

It was a good outing for our team considering it was the first game of the season. We are short-handed having only eight players available until our players from the football team join us after their season is completed. Until then, we will get playing time for our squad against some quality teams. The outcome is not as important as the experience and playing time.

Heritage has a fine coach and some tough kids, and they played hard. We just had more firepower with our top three carrying our team to a win. Our execution was off, and we were poor defensively at times; however, we did have enough talent to overcome those deficiencies. We have one player out, so we went into the game with seven players, and all seven scored. Senior, Xavier Collier, and freshman, William Jobe, both had 16 points and junior, Jacob O'Connor, finished with 12 points.

We take on Kings Ridge Academy, a GHSA school out of Alpharetta, tonight at 5:00 p.m.

Go Knights!

During the first few minutes of the game, the Knights went on a scoring flurry with three quick goals – one by Mary Ford Fitzjurls at 18:27 remaining, one by Sofia Gegg with 15:37 remaining, and one by Scout Brummett, with 10:00 minutes remaining. Nyah Forrester and Lauren Dunn had a number of good defensive stops to Needwood's offense during this first ten minutes of action. During the remainder of the half, the Knights continued with a strong offensive presence with at least four corner kicks by Scout and a direct kick by Mary Ford. Near the end of the first half, the offensive line had some great passes back and forth, driving toward the goal, but off-sides was called, ending that drive. Needwood scored with 22 seconds remaining in the first half on a misdirected kick that was out of the reach of goalie, Reese Hankey. Score 3-1.

During the second half, the defense stepped up and stopped multiple drives by the Warriors. Mavry Driggers, Audrey Shingler, Nyah Forrester, and Lauren Dunn all played strong on the defensive side of the field. There were several shots on goal by the offense, but they either were just over the net, just wide of the net, or ended up in the Warriors' goalie’s possession. Again, the offense had some strong passes to each other as they drove the ball down the field. With about five minutes remaining in the second half, Mary Ford put the ball in the net on a direct kick. Knights win!! Game ending score: 4-1.
Middle School Boys Soccer
The boys played another great soccer game on Wednesday. FA Middle School faced off against Needwood, a team that had previously beat FA for the last two seasons. As the whistle blew, the boys were ready and faced their opponents with confidence. Kingston Blogg rocked the goalie position and refused to let Needwood score. Luke Sarzier and Max Byrd dominated the center of the field. Smith Veal, Grant Prokop, Trey Walbridge, and Cullen Kazimir controlled the back of the field, and Luke Smith fired two shots which unfortunately hit the goalposts. All in all, it was a success as the boys walked away with an exciting tie against Needwood. We all hope to see you at our next game on November 30 at 3:30 p.m. against St. Francis Xavier.

Go Knights!
