Mistakes piled up for the Knights on Friday, so much that it cost them a chance to advance to the second round of the playoffs.
Carlos Litsey batted down a Fairdale pass to the end zone on fourth and 22 with 2:19 to go, seemingly ensuring a 17-14 victory for the Knights.
The Knights just needed to run the clock against Fairdale who had previously used all of their time outs.
A mishandled hand off led to a Buster Hazelwood fumble with 1:37 to go in the game. Fairdale would recover on the Marion County 36-yard line.
