A well played game by both teams, showing the league that it’s not all about scoring points, and playing some sound defense can also be just exciting as a shoot out!

Knights vs Raptors

The second game of the playoffs saw the first seed Knights face off against fourth seed Raptors. Despite the Knights only falling to the Reapers in overtime with Matt Jackson behind the helm, this game would see the much awaited returned of Jordan Gallienne to the starting QB position that played like he had something to prove!

The Knights roster returning to strength at the right time compared to the Raptors who would come into the game missing a number of key players. 

On the first drive of the game the Raptors defence would stand strong and ensure the Knights would not get off to an early lead. Luke Pattimore making another start at QB showed teams that he is a future starting QB in this league. He drove down the field and capitalised on a touchdown pass to Matthew Kershaw. He would then also get the extra point with an excellent pass which was met by an equally spectacular catch from Luke Rabey.

The Knights would dominate the rest of the game with 7 passing touchdowns spread throughout the team and a solid performance once again from the top defence in the league who would only allow 1 further score the entire game. 

The Knights go on to the bowl game with a 45 – 13 win and will meet the Reapers for the third time this season. The Knights have fallen just short on both previous occasions and will be looking to rectify that here.
