Knights focus on improvement

HOLD ON TIGHT –– There were a few fumbles during an Aug. 24 game in Cornell, but this play wasn’t one of them, as Tate Sauerwein (No. 29), freshman, gripped the pigskin for the Knights while his teammate, sophomore Seth Kohls (71), makes a block. Sauerwein proceeded to evade and push away from several defenders, gaining yards and earning cheers from the crowd.

After facing Ladysmith in a scrimmage earlier this season, the Cornell-Lake Holcombe Knights Football team competed against the Lumberjacks again in regular play Aug. 24, at home.

“Ladysmith has a very good team,” said Knights head coach Troy Story. “We came out very flat the first half.”

Cornell-Lake Holcombe fell behind in the first and second quarters as their opponents ran for a 20-yard touchdown, followed by a 6-yard run.
