North Webster hung around for most of the first half, but 5-A Airline ended up winning 56-6 in Bossier Thursday evening.

The Vikings handed the Knights their fourth loss of the season, and the second straight.

The Knights stalled on offense early, and Airline took advantage quickly. The Vikings scored on their opening possession after a few impressive Jordan Gladney runs set up Jamal Johnson for a three-yard touchdown.

Airline led 7-0 following the extra point with 8:24 left in the first quarter.

The Knights showed glimpses of the smart, defensive-minded play that has been their calling card all season. Airline traded three-and-outs with North Webster, but the Knights got quality punts from Payne Smith and tackling that set them up in great field position after a Vikings punt.

AJ Crow ran for twelve yards, then Eddie Rollen converted an end-around for nine yards.

The Knights were pouncing on the field position game, but they struggled last week against Logansport to convert red zone opportunities.

Scottie Johnson bucked the trend and walked into the end zone for a touchdown with two minutes left in the first quarter to put the score at 7-6 following a failed extra point attempt.

Gladney and Antavius Freeman put on a show from that point forward.

Other than a Tyler Davis interception, there wasn’t much more to celebrate for the Knights after that point.

North Webster falls to 3-4 on the season. Airline is 2-5.
