The Buckingham Co. Knights looked to take down Appomattox in their home opener Friday night.
The Knights quickly capitalized on an Appomattox fumble on the opening kickoff of the game. A few plays after the fumble, Maruice Taylor got the carry and powered in for a touchdown. Buckingham 7, Appomattox 0. The Knights added a 30-yard field goal to take a 10-0 lead at the half.
Appomattox would mount a comeback early in the third quarter. After a beautiful play action fake, Appomattox quarterback Kenny Scott sprinted into the endzone untouched to bring the Raiders within three, 10-7.
However, Buckingham would respond on the next possession. Running back Ja'rodd Wade broke off a long run into Raider territory, which would lead to another Buckingham field goal.
And the Knights held on to win at home by a score of 20-13.
