Fourth-quarter touchdown too little too late for Golden Knights
November 21, 2017

The Sussex Central Golden Knights football squad started out slow and could not get on track, as they fell 12-7 to William Penn in the opening round of the DIAA Division I Football Tournament Nov. 17 in Georgetown.

Each team took a quarter to size up the other before the Colonials got on the scoreboard with a 58-yard touchdown run by Isaiah Gaynor. The two-point conversion failed. William Penn went into the halftime break up 6-0.

The third quarter saw the Colonials scoring on a 28-yard pass play from quarterback Noah Ogbin. The two-point conversion failed again.

Central did get on the board in the fourth on a two-yard run by Drew Morris. Kade Bullock drilled the PAT to bring the Knights to within five.
