Evans scores clutch last-minute goal to advance

The Knights had their focus tested for all 80 minutes against Mt. Zion-Jonesboro on Wednesday night, a game they controlled throughout even though they scored in the final minute. That's when, only 54.4 seconds away from overtime, Chris Burton's long throw-in header squirted in front of the goal and Joe Rizner ripped it into the net for the only goal in the Knights' 1-0 win in the first-round Class AAAA playoff opener.
