PERFECTION ENDS A perfect season finally came to an end for the Palo Alto Knights' Jr. Midgets team following a 22-8 loss to Oak Grove on Sunday at Palo Alto High. The Knights will take an 8-1 record into the postseason. The Jr. Midgets will have a first-round bye this weekend, and then will play the San Francisco Seahawks on Nov. 4 at Paly. Palo Alto already has beaten the Seahawks, 40-6. Against Oak Grove, Palo Alto dug itself a hole early with three turnovers and fell behind by 14-0 in the first quarter. The Knights finally scored on a 28-yard pass from Jake Rittman to Ty Wilcox. That made up for an earlier TD pass from Rittman to Wilcox that was nullified by a penalty. The Knights had several other scoring opportunities, but could not execute against a solid Oak Grove defense and an offensive performance of spectacular catches and runs by the Razorbacks. With the Knights driving to score a potential game-tying TD in the fourth quarter — reaching the Oak Grove 21 — Rittman was sacked and knocked hit hard to the turf. He left the field and did not return. Oak Grove turned back Palo Alto's scoring attempt and wound up scoring a final TD with 1:45 in the game to seal the victory.
