???east noble... last year's 4-a state runner-up opening its postseason at home against ne8 foe columbia city..

???knights got the better of the eagles in the regular season, and not a whole lot changed tonight... east noble led 28-0 at the half... keeping their foot on the gas in the third quarter... nick munson fighting for extra yardage..???later in the drive... it's cole shupbach to a wide open rowan zolamn... what a show this kid put on tonight... three touchdowns, two interceptions and a fumble recovery on defense... that score puts the knights up 35- 0..???and the defense was doing it's thing as well... jacob vangorder and ethan nickles combining on the tackle for loss..

???as east noble cruises past c-city... 35-7 your final..

3 ???so the knights move on to play the winner of this game... dekalb hosting angola... hornets beat the barons 55-18 back on august 21, but dekalb came to play tonight..???scoreless when we pick this one up early second quarter... hornets looking to get on the board... andre tagliaferri picks up a nice chunk of yardage on the sweep play..???later in the drive though... and this was a theme in this game tonight... the dekalb defense stands tall... black jersies swarming tucker hasselman... evan snider leading the way... angola forced to punt..???on the ensuing touch for dekalb... this time it's the hornet defense making a big play of their own...the diving interception by ethan miller gives the ball back to angola..
