Missed chances doom Knights in 7-6 loss

With his team’s most experienced lineman and top running back sitting this one out with minor injuries, North Central head coach Louis Clyburn had to rethink things after the Knights were faced with a fourth and goal from the Buford six in the second quarter of Friday’s Camden Shrine Club Jamboree opener. One play earlier, it appeared as if NC would take a 6-0 lead over the Yellow Jackets only to have quarterback Bubba Williamson’s one-yard sneak into the end zone washed out by an illegal procedure call. Buford held on the fourth down carry, came back to score a touchdown and then snuffed a two-point NC conversion run to escape with a 7-6 win over the Knights.
