Rustin Downs Cougars in Thriller

Written by: on Sunday, September 26th, 2021. Follow Paul Sarpen on Twitter.


In what could be the best game in the Ches-Mont this season, the Golden Knights beat Downingtown East, 16-14.

The game was evenly matched game, but the combination of six penalties and the Cougars having few answers for Rustin’s Wing-T, helped the Golden Knights run for 290 yards, led by Dayshawn Jacobs’ 187.

Chris Yanko got the Golden Knights on the scoreboard, on a five-yard run. Bo Horvath tied the score on an 

eight-yard run.

Rustin got up at half 13-7, on a Quarterback sneak by Kobe Freeney. If the Golden Knights had a passing threat, this game could have been one sided. That said, they were able to expand their lead to 16-7 on a 25-yard field goal by Griffin Strunk.

Downingtown East added a touchdown early in the fourth frame to make it 16-14. They were able to drive deep into Rustin territory before an interception ended their threat.

West Chester Rustin 16, Downingtown East 14.
