Faith Academy Played Conroe Covenant Cougars in Friday Night Action

Friday the Faith Academy Knights traveled to Conroe to play the Covenant Cougars.   In a hard fought game the Knights lost 64-25.

Troy Herring (Bellville) lead the Knights down the field on their first possession.  The drive was capped off with Herring throwing a 6 yard TD to Grayson Shackelford (Bellville).  The 2 point kick attempt was no good.  At the end of the 1st quarter, the Knights were down 8-6. 

The Knights scored again in the 2nd quarter when Herring connected with Jake Ewing (Hempstead) on a 35 yard TD pass.  The extra point attempt was successful when Herring found Tyler Fontenot (Bellville) in the back of the end zone.  At the half the score was 30-13 in favor of the Cougars.  The Knights knew they were in for a battle. 

In the second half, Cameron Crawford (Bellville) completed an 11 yard TD pass to Herring.  The PAT was unsuccessful.  Later, Crawford hooked up with Fontenot on a 20 yard TD reception.  Herring completed the extra point to Fontenot. 

Offensively the Knights were led by Troy Herring who had 15 rushes for 85 yards, 6 of 11 passing for 60 yards and 2 TD.  Cameron Crawford was 6 of 12 passing for 67 yards and 2 TD.  The Knights top receivers were Jake Ewing with 4 receptions for 54 yards and 1 TD and Tyler Fontenot with 4 receptions for 29 yards and 1 TD. 

When the Cougars were threatening to apply the mercy rule, the Knight defense rose up and held strong.  The defense was led by Herring with 16 tackles and a fumble recovery.  Fontenot and Ewing also stepped up with 8 and 7 tackles, respectively. 

The Knights next game will be at home on October 16.  They will host Conroe Lifestyles at 7:00 pm for a district match up.  It will be Homecoming for Faith Academy.
