The top-ranked Kings Knights, who started the season No. 1 in the QCH/FOX19 Ohio Division II-III Rankings, dominated the Lebanon Warriors in all facets of the game in Friday night's season-opening game.
The defense forced three turnovers, including two interceptions by First-Team All-TriStateFootball.com defensive back Justin Crull. Meanwhile, Kings' (1-0) offense outgained Lebanon (0-1) with a 345-to-188 advantage in total yards. Running back Jamire Westrbook finished with 172 yards and a pair of scores on just 11 carries. Sophomore Nick Collado added 87 yards and a score of his own on 10 carries.
The Knights shut down the Warriors' ground attack limiting them to 2.7 yards per carry and made their offense one-dimensional. It showed as Lebanon quarterback Luke Morgan was picked off three times. He completed 11-of-21 passes for 120 yards while passing for both of the team's scores.
