At first it didn’t seem like there was going to be much to celebrate.
Then the offense for the Knights kicked in. Once they were able to get their offense going the Knights were able to take control of the game.
Eventually that control led to a 56-50 victory over Sioux City North.
The Knights were hindered by just six points in the first quarter as Sioux City North scored 11 points to hold the lead.
The Knights were able to respond with 16 points in the second quarter. Sioux City North kept their offense running with 14 points of their own, but the lead was starting to drain.
In the third quarter the Knights took total control of the game. Not only did their offense continue to excel, they scored 16 points again, but the defense broke through and limited Sioux City North offense.
The Knights limited Sioux City North to just nine points in the third.
Offense for both teams showed up again in the final quarter. Sioux City North scored 16, but the Knights were able to score 18 to preserve their six point victory.
