The Rattler offense just could not find any momentum within this game, the Rattler offense was held to zero points until the fourth quarter where the Rattlers got their first touchdown of the game, with the PAT being blocked.
Entering the second quarter, the Steele offense took off, scoring 24 unanswered points in the third quarter. The Rattler offense had no answer for what the Knights had until their first and only score.
When asked about how they were going to enter this game Ory Williams answered, “We just have to enter game as we usually do and try to adjust.” Also, Williams was asked how he planned on coming into this game he stated, “I just needed to protect my QB, that’s always been my main goal every week, I hate to see my QB get sacked.”
