Ballou wide receiver Labron Johnson ran across the field, waving his arms as he celebrated a 29-26 win over Theodore Roosevelt that seemed unlikely when his team trailed by 13 points at halftime.

If the Knights were worried when trailing, they didn’t show it. A touchdown pass late in the third quarter from quarterback Aaron Penny to wide receiver Lavonte Gater sparked a rally that was completed in the final five seconds of the game when the same two players struck again.
