Knoxville's Noah Keefer rushes against Newton in a game earlier this season

KNOXVILLE — The Panthers suffered their fourth shutout loss of the 2021 campaign as a good Tigers squad of ADM came to Ken Locke Stadium on Friday and left with a 52-0 victory.

ADM got off to a quick start by scoring 21 points in each of the first two quarters to lead 42-0 at the half.

Knoxville didn’t have much going in the first half but were able to get the offense going a little bit in the second half as they had one of their better passing days of the season.

Sophomore quarterback Noah Keefer finished 8-of-15 for 66 yards while Tristin DeJong led the ground attack with 48 yards on seven carries.

Dakota Ramsey had three catches for 22 yards but also led the defense with 6.5 tackles on the night.

ADM had a balanced attack on the night, completing 16-of-17 passes for 206 yards and four touchdowns while running for 221 yards on 16 carries for another three touchdowns.

Knoxville (1-7, 1-3) wraps up regular season play by hosting No. 1 (3A) Harlan (8-0, 4-0) on Friday at 7:30 p.m.
