Now, Ryan said, the team is focused on securing a playoff berth, something the Knights haven’t done in two of the past three years. Wins to close the season against Geneseo this week and Ottawa next week guarantee a playoff spot with six wins, but Ryan said he felt like the Knights still would have enough playoff points to qualify with only five wins.
Not that he wants to find out, which is why the Knights said a win Friday against the Maple Leafs (4-3) is important.
“We are playing good football, and we have to be all together against a pretty good Geneseo team,” linebacker Chaz Shaw said. “Our secondary, with the takeaways, gives us some electric feelings, and we could use that to our advantage.”
