Adrian Cormier got his first of three touchdowns in the first quarter of 75 yards to extend the lead. By halftime, the Knights were up 31-6 from touchdowns by Nick Mayberry and Cormier. The Knights piled up more points in the second half by scores from Quon Marion, Mayberry and Charles Gauntly.
Episcopal's defense was not in the giving mood, holding St. Johns to negative 13 yards rushing.The Knights accumulated 443 total yards -- 86 passing yards and 357 rushing yards, making the Knights 4-1 and 2-0 in SPC play.
Next week, the Knights take conference opponents St. Mark's in Dallas.
