With quarterback Savion Knowlton passing for four touchdowns and running for two more, Westside rebounded from its first loss of the season Saturday with a 42-21 win at Jordan.
Coming off a two-point loss at Jackson, Westside strung together three passing touchdowns after spotting Jordan a 7-0 lead when Red Jackets linebacker Markus Wright, a California commitment, picked off Knowlton and ran it back 32 yards for a score a little more than a minute in.
Knowlton had 9-yard touchdown passes to Steve Dolphus and Donta Pate, as well as 13-yarder to Gerimie Mitchell. Jordan quarterback Romello Kimbrough had scoring runs of 24 and 28 yards, but Knowlton responded with touchdown runs of 3 and 7 yards.
The other touchdown came in the fourth quarter, when Knowlton found Ty’gee Cunningham from 24 yards out.
Never miss a local story.
Westside (6-1, 4-1 GHSA Region 2-AAA) returns to Columbus’ Kinnett Stadium this Saturday when it takes on a surging Spencer team that defeated Southwest and Jackson in back-to-back weeks.
