Kingsland’s Hot Shooting Leads Past Chatfield
The Kingsland Knights couldn't miss as they defeated the Chatfield Gophers 75-50 on 103.1 KFIL Tuesday night.
The Knights came flying out of the gate, and a big part of that was their ability to attack the basket. Wyatt Pruter and Jackson Rindels wasted no time getting to the hoop and drawing fouls.
The Knights were in the bonus with over 12 minutes to play in the first half. The Gophers struggled to rebound, and that led to a couple of frustration fouls early. Chatfield was forced to go to the bench early.
The Knights jumped out to a 13-4 lead, but the Gophers were able to climb back a bit and make it 15-10. After that, it was all Kingsland. The Knights went on a 15-0 run to earn a 30-10 lead in the middle of the half.
The Gophers didn't have an answer for Pruter, who had 12 points in the first half en route to his game-high 27. Jordan Beck was great as well, adding in 15 points. The Knights carried a 46-29 lead into the break.

The second half was much of the same. The Knight continued to attack the basket as Pruter was a perfect 7-of-7 at the line in the second half, going 9-of-9 for the game. Rindles shot eight free throws and Beck added two of his own.
The Gophers got some great play from their underclassmen in Reid Johnson and Landon Bance. Bance finished with a team-high 15 points, hitting four shots from deep, while Johnson finished with 10 and had some nifty passes to go with it.
Ultimately it came down to rebounding, and the Knights grabbed about every defensive rebound possible. Add that to their incredible shooting, and the Knights came away with the 75-50 win.
