The Kaneland Knights football team won their Round 1 game on Friday night at home vs Crystal Lake Central 41-13. The Knights won their IHSA Class 6A opener with a mix of running and passing. The defense was not bad either keeping Crystal Lake Central at bay as the Tigers had trouble getting much going against the Knights.
Wilson Giffney and Evan Hogan proved to be a tough duo on the ground for Kaneland running behind a powerful offensive line. If that wasn’t enough Joe Smith found some of his favorite targets in the passing game during the night to secure this Round 1 win. Smith hit Colton Doll on a 15 yard TD pass to give Kaneland a 7-3 lead they would never relinquish.
Smith also completed some key passes in the game to Max Gagne and Dylan Calabrese among others to help secure this one. Kaneland will now take on Lake Forest High School who defeated Belvidere North 21-14 on Friday night. The Scouts from Lake Forest HS are 6-4 with Kaneland improving to 8-2.
Good luck Knights at Lake Forest Friday night at 7:30pm. WSPY plans on broadcasting the game live and it is also scheduled to be streamed live on WSPYNEWS.COM.
