Independence dismantles Butler 49-7

It took 15 seconds for Independence to take the lead in Friday’s game against Butler. Lawrence Martin[singlepic=383,320,240,,right] ran the opening kickoff back for six points and kicker Robbie Ward added an extra point for a 7-0 score. Butler would not get closer the rest of the game as the Patriots overwhelmed the Bulldogs 49-7.

“I was a little surprised because Butler came out a little flat and Lawrence’s touchdown return stuck it to them a bit,” Knotts said after the game.

Martin finished with six catches for 95 yards and one touchdown to go with his kickoff return for a touchdown. He also had a 72 yard touchdown pass called back because of penalty on the Patriots’ first play from scrimmage.

“He’s made big plays for us all year,” said Knotts. “When he gets the ball in his hands he can do special things. He’s electric when he gets it.”
