The Knights were missing star linebacker Eliyah Mayberry, who suffered three broken ribs in last week's loss but, with the aid of a flak-jacket, is determined to return in time for next week's quarterfinal clash. "Eliyah's a game-changer for us as far as tackles for loss and sacks and making a difference over there on defense, but I was really proud of the guys that stepped in," Thompson said.. "I have four offensive linemen that start both ways -- you find me another school in the state that does that, not even in 1A. "So I've got kids out there that are outweighed by 50 pounds playing both ways, never coming off the field, and we'll take what we get with that. I'll take the win and their effort and we're happy to move on."
