Football: Knights fall to the Reinhardt Eagles 35-9

LAURINBURG - The Knights hosted AAC conference opponent Reinhardt University on Saturday afternoon. Although this wasn’t a conference match, both sides played a hard fought scrappy match, but unfortunately the Knights were unable to come away with the victory. Although the result didn’t go in favor of the Knights it was the closest match they’ve played against an extremely tough schedule including road matches against the NAIA’s ranked #4 team, #9 team, and an FCS Division I school in Davidson. The momentum the Knights were able to create will hopefully translate into their next match and as the search for their first win continues, it feels ever closer now.
