MAY – The Greyhounds are still searching for that first win after a loss to May on Sept. 10 dropped Knox City to 0-3.
May was ahead 16-0 before Bryson Callaway found Kobe Roberts on an 8-yard scoring pass. With a good point-after kick from Devin Guillory, the Hounds trailed only 16-8 in the second quarter.
Just before halftime, Callaway found pay dirt again on a 24-yard scramble into the end zone. Guillory’s kick was true to cut May’s lead to 30-16. Unfortunately, the Knox City defense allowed 16 more points before the half and they trailed 46-16 going into the locker room.
May would score 19 more points in the second half while holding the Greyhounds scoreless for the remainder of the game.
May had 271 yards offensively while Knox City had 212. The Hounds held their own from the air, completing 8-of-16 passes while May was 4-of-10. Callaway finished 7-for-13 with 93 passing yards and he also led Greyhound rushers with 64 yards. Guillory had 28 on six carries while Tristin Baxter had 17 on three carries.
May’s rushing game accounted for 197 yards while Knox City had just 98. The Greyhounds collected 114 receiving yards while May had 74. Kendal Smith led the Greyhounds with a 45-yard reception; Baxter had 28 yards on two catches; Guillory had a 16-yard catch, Ryan Shaver 10 yards and Caleb Arrieta seven. Knox City suffered from three turnovers – all fumbles.
Greyhounds Coach Caleb Callaway said the early season tilts against top-tier opponents could give Knox City some advantages heading into district play.
“We are coming off of back to back weeks playing number one in D-2 and number one in D-1 so we feel like we have been battle tested and have been able to look at the film and continue to grow from our mistakes,” he said. “Being able to play these teams has helped us recognize areas where we need to improve and I look to see some growth this week against Ira. Ira is another good football team and we will have to come out and play aggressive and make plays. I look to see good things from our guys this week both in practice and in the game.”
The Greyhounds host Ira this Friday for the homecoming game.
