  • EDINA, Mo. – Scotland County welcomed back Will McRoberts to the lineup and his 109 yards and two rushing touchdowns helped the Tigers beat Knox County for the second time this season, 41-26.
    Cordie Kigar was the Tigers big-play threat as he rushed for 170 yards and a touchdown on only five carries. Chris Jackson also went over the century mark as he rushed for 108 yards and three scores. As a team, Scotland County rushed for 378 yards and six touchdowns.
    “We had a balanced attack tonight. Getting Will back did a lot for our offense and the offensive line played great,” said Scotland County head coach Daniel Burns.
    McRoberts missed the Tigers game against Milan with a hamstring injury.
    Knox County was able to get their yards, but turned the ball over three times.
    Donovan Edwards rushed the ball 18 times for 96 yards and a score. Through the air he was 5-of-9 for 90 yards and a touchdown, but threw two interceptions. Brody Moubry rushed 12 times for 92 yards and two touchdowns. Royce Poore had two catches for 43 yards and a score.
    “We knew they were going to get their plays. Knox County that’s just what they do. This time we were able to make tackles and force turnovers, which is something we couldn’t do the first meeting,” said Burns.
    In addition to the two interceptions the Tigers forced a fumble.
    Scotland County is now 4-3 on the season and 2-1 in the TRC. They are in a second place tie with Putnam County. Those two schools get together next week in Unionville.
    Knox will play host to Schuyler County in a game that looked a lot different at the beginning of the season.
