Game Recap

The Central Catholic Knights won the 1A Regional Championship with a 31-14 victory over the Pioneer Panthers. It was a very hard fought game between the #1 Knights and #2 Panthers. The Pioneer offense kept the CC defense guessing in the first half and headed into halftime with a 7-3 lead. The top-ranked Knights responded with a good opening drive in the second half to take a 10-7 lead. Pioneer came right back, after a bad snap on a punt by CC gave the Panthers the ball in great field position, Pioneer scored on a great catch to take a 14-10 lead. CC then picked off a Pioneer pass late in the 3rd to set up a Jackson Anthrop TD on the first play in the 4th to take a 17-14 advantage. The CC defense rose to the occasion to force a 3 and out by the Panthers, and on the next series, Avery Denhart hit Luke Fusiek in stride for a 56 yard TD to break the game open for the Knights. Up 24-14 late in the 4th, Jackson Anthrop read the Pioneer QB’s eyes perfectly, broke on the pass, and picked it off and took it to the house for the game sealing TD. Avery Denhart finished 16-27 for 218 yards to lead CC.
