HOWARD — The Highland Scots dropped the “heavy package” on the East Knox Bulldogs in their Knox-Morrow Athletic Conference showdown at Chet Looney Stadium on Friday night. In the end, the Scots walked away with a 28-7 win and at least a share of the KMAC title.

Highland’s big backs rolled up 359 rushing yards. Meanwhile, the Highland defense shut down the Bulldogs’ passing game in the second half.

“I was very happy with both sides of the ball tonight,” said Highland coach Chad Carpenter. “Our offense was able to move the ball — especially in key situations. Defensively, it seemed that we had huge stops all night.”
