It’s no secret that the Knights have been dominating their competition this year. So, when they were officially named the #1 seed in Class 4, District 1 it didn’t surprise anyone. They finished the regular season with a 7-2 record and looked like they were ready to start taking care of business when the 8th seed, the Windsor Owls (3-6,) traveled to Farmington for a win or go home game.

The game was as one-sided as it gets in the opening round of districts. Farmington dominated on both sides of the ball as they scored on their first seven possessions of the game. The Owls were able to find the endzone one time all night when quarterback Kaelan Gmerek threw a 37-yard touchdown pass to Julian Ulmer in the first half. The Knights played lockdown defense and took a commanding 49-7 lead into half time.

The second half was the same story as Farmington scored another 14 points before the game was over. Six of those were off of an interception that Eli Lamb ran home for another Knights touchdown. They continued to play phenomenal defense and Farmington walked away with a 63-9 victory in the first round of district play. The Knights gained four-hundred plus rushing yards during that contest.

Windsor’s season ended on a 3-7 record

Farmington moved to 8-2 and will host the Festus Tigers on November 8th in the second round of districts. The Knights look to redeem themselves from a season-ending loss to Festus last year in the same exact game. Kickoff will start at 7.
