Kamiak recovered an onside kick after the touchdown, giving the Knights the ball on the 18-yard line, which led to another Binda touchdown, this time with 8:30 left in the first half.

Henderson Belk would score his first of two touchdowns of the night when Tyler Becker threw him a 21-yard pass with 6:38 left in the second. Belk's second touchdown came with 1:15 left in the half when Becker threw him a 5-yard touchdown pass.

The Knights led 34-6 at halftime.

After the break, Kamiak made quick work in the third quarter, when Binda scored the first touchdown of the second half after an 88-yard run.

Binda scored his fourth and final points of the evening with one minute reaming in the third quarter, lifting the Knights to a 48-6 lead.
