The Knights (4-0 overall, 3-0 Division I) did all their scoring in the first half with 22 points in the opening quarter and 26 more in the second. The final 24 minutes of regulation was played with a running clock.
Led on offense by junior quarterback Steffin Wilkens and junior running back Tyrell Siler-moore, City has outscored its opponent, 140-14, in its first four games. The Knights haven’t allowed a touchdown in its last nine games, thanks to the efforts of senior linebackers Tre James and Diamante Fox.
Friday evening at Lumsden-Scott Stadium, City will meet defending Division I co-champs and No. 15 Dunbar. The Poets celebrated homecoming last Friday with a rout of Mervo.
Dunbar handed City its first shutout loss in years with a 22-0 decision last season on the Knights’ field. The Poets broke a scoreless halftime tie with three second half touchdowns including a 37-yard catch and run by Devontay McManus. City last defeated Dunbar in 2006 (28-12).
