Besides that, the Knights were short some players due to injuries from the previous game. Early in the game with the Vikings, a couple of key players were injured and didn't return. With this shortage of players, the Knight coaches were forced to play a couple of freshmen. The net result was a convincing victory for the visiting Vikings. Coach Fredrickson had these thoughts, "We played hard to the bitter end. It was tough to fill the holes on defense with the younger players. With a team like Minneota, any weakness on defense will be found. We still didn't tackle or block like we should. The Vikings were just more physical than we were." The game actually start- ed well for the Knights. After receiving the kickoff, the Knights had to punt. Breman Ulrich would come up big on defense as he would get a huge inter- ception on the defensive side. The Knights would start at their own 45-yard line. However, the Knights would give the ball right back with a fumble on the offensive side. The Vikings would then score on nine consecutive series. They would score on run plays, pass plays, punt returns and kickoff returns. The halftime score was 49-0. The Knights would fi- Photo by Robert Wolfington Breman Ulrich runs after intercepting a Minneota pass in the first quarter of the Knights' home opener on Friday, Sept. 12. nally make some noise on their 14th series on offense. Kevin Andersen would have consecutive runs of 10, 11 and 34 yards to move the ball to the 14-yard line. Ryan Fis- cher would get 12 yards on a counterplay. Anders- en would find the endzone for the last two yards. The try for extra point failed, but the Knights had maybe found some MO for the Homecoming game this week. Andersen was the lead- ing ground gainer for the Knights with 96 yards on 16 carries. Colton Lawson carried the ball 12 times for 47 yards. Lawson had good success returning Viking kickoffs. He had almost 90 yards return- ing these kickoffs. Tate Thooft had five successful connections from his pass- ing arm. However, none of them went for more than five yards. The Knights' defense was led by Lawson and Josh Christensen. They would have 11 and nine tackles, respectively. Law- son also had a couple of pass knockdowns. Josue Gonzalez added five tack- les to the mix. Ryan Fis- cher had three tackles and a pass knockdown. The Knights have their Homecoming game this Friday evening. Their op- ponent will be the Mur- ray County Central Reb- els. Both of these teams will be seeking their first win of the year. Hopefully, the Knights will be at full strength for their big- gest game of the year, the Homecoming Tilt. (LET'S GET THE MOV- ING COMPANY MOVING, KNIGHTS) By Jim Kopel Tribute Sports The Lady Knights ran into a very good Dawson- Boyd Blackjack team last Tuesday as the Jacks would win three straight games in winning the Camden Con- ference battle by scores of 25-22, 25-6 and 25-17. Once again the young Knights, playing three freshman during the match, were no match for the aggressive Blackjacks. The visitors seemed to find the open area on the floor too many times, es- pecially during the second and third games. The first game saw the home team Knights stay with the visitors from Dawson. There were eight ties in the game, the last one being at 16. A kill by Nicole Enemark saw the score at 22-23 for the Jacks. Janel Wichern had five kills in the first game. The second game was all Dawson. It really didn't make any difference if the Lady Knights called time out or not. The momen- tum seemed to always stay with the visitors. Four of the six RTR points were kills by Wichern. The third game was close during the early stages. An ace serve by Tina Haroldson gave the Lady Knights a lead of one point when the score was 6-5. Two consecutive kills by Wichern tied the game at 12. Wichern got a kill for the 14th point. The Jacks would then score nine of the next 12 points for the game and match. Wichern was the of- fensive mainstay for the Knights with 15 kills and 17 digs. Enemark and Bai- ley Possail had five and three kills, respectively. Enemark also had 12 digs. Tina Haroldson was nine of 10 serving with one ace. Enemark was 11 of 12 from the serving area. Hallie Lingen had 14 digs, while Lexi Wendland had two blocks. Britany Miersma and Wendland had nine and four set as- sists, respectively. The loss moved the over- all record to 2 wins and 8 losses. The Camden Con- ference mark is 1 win and 2 losses. Next up for the Lady Knights is a road trip to Minneota. This match will be staged on Sept. 18. The Lady Knights will travel to Kerkhoven to bat- tle KMS on Tuesday, Sept. 23. (KEEP THE FAITH, LA- DIES) The RTR B Team had a rousing battle with the young Jacks, as they would win the match. The final game was a 16-14 thriller. The coach of the RTR B Team is Melissa Hurni. win By Jim Kopel Tribute Sports The volleyball Knights of RTR traveled to Canby last Thursday to play some needed volleyball. Needed, because the Lady Knights were in desperate need of a win. Yes, the Knights played one of their most in- spired matches of the year with a four-set win over the Lancers. The scores of the match were 25-23, 25- 19, 23-25 and 28-26. Coach T.]. Williams was more than excited about his team's effort, "We fi- nally had the energy we have been looking for all year. We never gave up and played hard until the happy ending." The Knights were led by Bailey Possail as she recorded seven kills in the exciting match. Nicole Enemark and Tina Harold- son each had 20 digs. Lexi Wendland had five assists to lead the team in that stat. The Lady Knights used some different combina- tions in the four games to confuse the Lancers at key spots in the match. The Lady Knights im- proved their conference record to 2 wins and 2 losses. The Knights will have to be in super high gear this Thursday as they travel to Minneota to battle the state-ranked vikings. (GO TEAM) TELEPHONE CO.
