KNIGHTS SET SCHOOL SCORING RECORD IN 67-14 VICTORY

On a damp, chilly night, the varsity football team set Pace's new single-game scoring record with a 67-14 victory over the Towers Titans. The Knights' offense took apart the Titans, rushing, passing, and catching touchdowns in bunches.

 

Senior Jared Rayman continued his steady command of the offense, leading the Knights to the record-setting score. The backfield of senior Keashawn Perryman, sophomore Justin Johnson and freshman Deuce Jordan II ran at will while sophomore Jayden Thomas had another big night with a long touchdown reception from Rayman. The offensive line, led by seniors Chilton Tolliver and Cameron Hamilton, dominated with help from freshman Hunter Rocker, who filled in for injured sophomore Christian Bing

 

The Knights' defense was also stellar. Senior Patrick Thurman had his first career interception, and seniors Chase Karamanolis and Parker Spillers put in outstanding performances. The Knights were in full command at the half, 40-0, so freshman quarterback Jae Williams and junior running back Connor Husk took the reins and kept it rolling to a final score of 67-14. The Knights completed the regular season with a 6-4 record headed into the State Playoffs for the fifth consecutive year in the program's 10-year history. Kudos go to Coach Slade and his staff.

 

Friday's game between Lovett and Westminster will decide Pace's playoff seeding. If Westminster beats Lovett, Pace will be the third seed from Region 5-AAA and will play Jefferson High School at Jefferson. If Lovett beats Westminster, there will be a coin flip between Pace, Westminster and Lovett to decide seeds two, three and four. If Pace is the No. 2 seed, the Knights will host a playoff game for the first time ever; if Pace is the No. 3 seed, the Knights will travel to Jefferson; and if Pace is the No. 4 seed, the Knights will have a rematch with Monroe Area at Monroe.

 

Next up: FIRST ROUND OF STATE-AAA PLAYOFFS on NOV. 9 vs TBD. Stay tuned!
