Knights rally in final minutes to defeat East Mills, 24-22

MALVERN - All night, Fremont-Mills’ Parker Powers had been bottled up by bracket coverage, double teams and an aggressive East Mills defense.

None of that mattered on perhaps the biggest play of the game.

Following Sam Phillips’ game tying two-yard touchdown run, Powers’ leapt over a Wolverine defender and snagged a Phillips’ pass to give his team the lead for good with just 1:39 to go in the No. 1 ranked Knights’ 24-22 victory on Homecoming Night in Malvern Friday night.
