Knotts: Win should have been better

Independence extended its streak of scoring at least 40 points to six games, but that is not enough for head coach Tom Knotts. Independence beat Ardrey Kell 42-14 last night.
“It was just another game wading through and just getting to the end,” Knotts said. “They had six starters out, they are basically playing with a JV team. It should have been a whole lot better than that.”
