The St. Augustine Purple Knights defense forced a turnover on Karr's first possession after (Tulane commit) Jahrie Garner caught an interception off of a pass that went sailing in the air because of a big hit from Shane Payton. But the Cougars defense would hold & A.J Samuel would hook up with Tyrone Wilson for a 5 yard touchdown pass to go up 7-0 with 6:25 in the first.
Special Teams would play a huge factor in the game early when Kylen Lampton took a punt return 58 yards for a touchdown to put the Cougars up 14-0. The ensuing kickoff, Brennan Harris Jr. scooped up a fumble & returned it 31 yards for a touchdown to increase the lead to 21-0 with 4:22 left in the first quarter.
The Purple Knights stop the bleeding a little when Clint Langford scored on a 8 yard run to cut the lead to 21-7 with 2:44 left in the first quarter. The Cougars would score 21 straight points to go up 42-7 at the half with touchdowns from A.J Samuel to Tavis Williams for a 23 yard pass, Samuel a 9 yard run, & Deantre Jackson on a 57 yard run.
Chris Vasquez would put the finishing touches on the Purple Knights with a 11 yard touchdown run to put the Cougars up 49-7.
