Coming off a bye week, the Marion County Knights traveled to play the East Jessamine Jaguars on Oct. 16. The Knights, still looking for their first win, could not muster any offense, and were shut out, 58-0.
"It was a lopsided game," Knight Head Coach Corey Crume said. "We had a really slow start and we couldn't match their speed and athleticism."
Crume also said that the Knights (0-8) gave up several long runs early to the Jaguars (6-3). 
As for the Knights offense, Crume said mental mistakes and botched quarterback-center exchanges all plagued the Knights.
"I felt like we took a step back," he said. 
The Knights started Justin Spalding at Quarterback. 
The Knights have two games left on the schedule, both away. The Knights travel to play the Taylor County Cardinals on Oct. 23, and wrap up the season at the Washington County Commanders on Oct. 30.
