The weather was per­fect last Thursday in Tyler for the first football game of the new season. There was a nice crowd on hand. There were cheerleaders for the first time in a long time. The Knights were once again playing 11-man football after two success­ful years in the nine-man ranks. However, because of experience and better size by the visiting Adrian Dragons, they were able to play the better football to win the game by a score of 42 to 13.
