On Thursday, Oct. 4, the LSE Knights took the dub against the Pius X Thunderbolts. The game began at 7 p.m. at Seacrest Field. The final score of the non-conference game was 21-14.


The Knights used an exciting play of trickery, which led them to their victory. The game-winning play began when “[junior cornerback and] wide receiver Isaac Appleget caught a pass off a down-and-out pattern from quarterback Jampe’ Gergen, then pitched the ball to running back Jaden Davis streaking past him on the right,” Ron Powell from the Lincoln Journal Star reported.


Sourced from the Lincoln Journal Star, according to Appleget, the play is practiced at least once a week, that way the team is prepared for situations where it will come in need.


The play resulted in the deciding points in the Knights’ 21-14 win over Class A No. 8 Pius X, which was introduced with the final 70-yard touchdown by Davis with 2:57 left in the game.
