Freshman Football: Knights look to overcome uncertainty against TJ

A mixed up schedule and rapid change opponents hasn’t fazed the Knights as they look to take down the Patriots.

For a team that has faced, a large amount of imbalance during the 2013 season, the Middletown High School Knights Freshmen Football team has managed to do pretty well.

The Knights have had to switch four opponents with Brunswick, Frederick, Catoctin, and Walkersville being replaced by Linganore, North Hagerstown, and two games against Governor Thomas Johnson.

Due to these schedule changes, five of the Knights’ eight games will be against Linganore and Governor Thomas Johnson, with the Lancers taking up two slots and the Patriots playing the Knights an unheard of three games this season.

Even though the original schedule now resembles a sketch book, with lines all across the page, crossing out opponents left and right, the Knights (2-1) have moved forward through the uncertainty and will look to take down the Patriots tonight..

The Knights have used a good defense to turn their games into slow, close scoring affairs and look for one or two scores to send them over the edge.

The Knights have beaten Linganore by scores of 12-7 and 8-7 while just losing to Urbana by a score of 6-7.

The Knights are lead by quarterback Adam Bain and halfback Kyle Broadbent, who have developed a good feel for the offense.
