For a second straight week Kings (0-2) is stunned at home as Piqua (1-1) pulls off one of their biggest road upsets in years. Quarterback Justice Young connected with classmate Ben Crawford on a 25 yard score with 0:13 left in the game to give the Indians the victory in a thriller. The Knight gave up the lead twice in the fourth quarter as they lost the turnover battle 3-1. The miscues would prove to be costly for a second straight week for Kings.
Young would finish the night 11-18 for 162 yards and two touchdown passes. Running back Ryan Hughes picked up 99 yards on five carries with a long of 66 for the winners. Everyone pitched in for the Indians as Luke Karns had 160 all-purpose yards while Austin Covault’s only reception went for a touchdown and Trent Yoemans also scored on a short run.
Nick Collado ran for a career high 213 yards on 33 carries with a touchdown for Kings. The Knights dominated the time of possession battle and outgained Piqua 337 to 332 on the night. It was the inability to stop the big play that eventually did the home team in. Kings gave up nine plays of 14 yards or more to the Indians offense.
Kings will travel to Harrison (0-2) as someone will pick up their first win of the year. Piqua will also hit the road and head 45 miles north to on Lima Senior (0-2).
