LUCAS, OH- The Golden Knights take down the Cubs on the road to remain undefeated. 

After a Lucas three and out on their opening series, Northmor drove down the field and scored on a Demetrius Johnson nine yard touchdown. The Knights would not give up the lead for the remainder of the game. The Cubs struggled to find a rhythm in their offense as the offensive line couldn't generate any push in the run game and struggled to protect quarterback Jeb Grover. Northmor quarterback Demetrius Johnson had a field day running through the Lucas defense, as the Golden Knights toppled the Cubs 26-8.

Johnson had an impressive night on the ground, rushing for 290 yards and three touchdowns but went 1-7 passing for 31 yards. Running back Conan Becker finished with 83 yards rushing and Ryland Thomas scored on his only carry of the game.

Jeb Grover was the Cubs' workhorse of the game, completing 6-15 passes for 95 yards and rushing for 79 yards and a touchdown.
