The Atom Knights travelled to Mission last weekend to take on the Mission Niners. Knights offensive linemen, Tyson Caughy, and James Harder, kept the Niner defense at bay and gave running backs, Riley Rooney and Nicho Zolliker and opportunity to run for big gains along the sidelines as Rooney saw his first two touchdowns of the season.
Linebackers Isaiah Cavelli and Aiden Sanderson dominated the Mission offense, but a couple of broken plays put the Niners into the end zone twice as well.
