Oakland-Craig Takes Down Stanton, no Game This Week


The Oakland-Craig Knights blew past Stanton last Friday night 33-14 in a thriller for the OC fans.

“This was a big win for our team. The guys really prepared well and came out ready to play.  We were able to jump on them early in the 1st quarter, which took them out of some of the things that they like to do.” stated OC Head Coach Joe Anderson. “I thought our line did a good job up front which allowed Hoss and Cole to have big nights on the ground.” 

There won’t be a game this week, as Laurel-Concord forfeited this week’s game to the Knights.

“Unfortunately, we don’t get to get back out there and play this week. We will try to use this week to heal up some of our injuries and work a lot on some fundamental things that we are doing wrong,” Anderson said.

O-C Knights Easily Handle the T-H Tigers


The Oakland-Craig Knights lit up the scoreboard, trouncing the Tekamah-Herman Tigers last Friday night in Tekamah. The final score was a whopping 61-12. 

“Our goal was to come out and start fast. I thought we did a good job of doing that.  Our kids played very physical and were able to put the game away early, stated Oakland Craig Head Coach Joe Anderson.   This game allowed our young kids a lot of playing time. I thought I saw a lot of  improvement from them. This will go a long ways in developing the depth we will need as the season goes along.”

The Knights travel to Crofton tomorrow night to take on the undefeated Crofton Warriors. Go Knights!

Battle Creek Hands Oakland-Craig First Loss of Season


Battle Creek easily handled the Oakland-Craig Knights last Friday in Oakland, downing the Knights 41-12.

“As a team we were disappointed with the way we played. We knew is was going to take a great effort on our part to beat a team like Battle Creek, stated O-C Head Coach Joe Anderson. “They are a big physical team that wore us down as the game went on.”

Battle Creek held Oakland-Craig to 226 yards in total offense, while they racked up 500 yards. Defensively, Connor Thiele lead the way with eight tackles, followed by Cole Mitchell and Hos Smith with five each.

“This week we have to get back to the basics and really improve on our techniques and fundamentals. I  felt we were very sloppy in many of those areas.” said Coach Anderson. “This was only one game and our team goals are very much still intact, but it is very important that we learn from this game and make the corrections so we can continue to improve.

The Knights are on the road this Friday, looking to add another win to their record against the Tekamah-Herman Tigers. Kick-off is at 7:00 p.m. Go Knights!!

Oakland-Craig Downs Fremont Bergan in Season Opener


The Oakland-Craig Knights came back from a 6-0 half-time score to defeat Fremont Bergan 22-6

“We did not play as discipline as we would have liked, but you have to like the end result. It was a great team win,” stated Joe Anderson, Oakland-Craig Head Football Coach. “We had way too many penalties and turnovers, but solid defense really allowed us to overcome those mental mistakes.  I thought we played very physical on the defensive side of the ball.”

Leading the way defensively was Hos Smith with 12 tackles followed by Connor Thiele with seven. Tommy Nelson had six tackles and one fumble recovery.

The offense struggled, but managed to get the job done.

“Offensively we had a lot of opportunities but failed to cash in on many of them. However, I like the way our kids stayed focused and stuck with the game plan,” said Anderson. “We were able to wear Bergan down a little bit in the 4th quarter and got our running game going and put it away.”

The first game of the season shows where the Knights excel and the areas that need more work to become a better, stronger team.

“This game really showed some of the things that we need to improve on.

We will play a very physical and discipline Battle Creek team who is rated in the top 4 so we have to make sure we have a great week of practice this week,” stated Anderson.

The Knights take on Battle Creek tomorrow night at 7:00 p.m. Come and show your support and cheer on the Knights to victory!
