“We moved the ball well in the first quarter but we came up two touchdowns short,” Hilton said. “Luckily we were able to make some adjustments and get the lead for good in the third quarter.”
The Knights, needing a spark on offense, turned to punter Justin Crager who ran the fake perfectly to midfield with seven minutes left in the third quarter. But KCU would have to punt it was three plays later.
UPIKE made the adjustments they needed to at the half as they limited KCU to 29 yards of total offense. Quarterback Isaac Brabson was 9-for-20 for 79 yards.
“We missed a lot of opportunities on some throws,” Peterson said. “We have a young quarterback and we just have to make things better and keep working.”
Seth Millar would give UPIKE their third touchdown of the second half at the start of the fourth quarter to give the Bears a 22-7 advantage.
Kentucky Christian will hit the road next week when they travel to No. 2 University of the Cumberlands Saturday.
