The Golden Knights trounced Stephen Decatur to keep their hopes for an at-large state tournament berth alive.

Sussex Central is now 6-1 overall and would need to win all of its three remaining games to virtually assure itself of a second straight state tournament berth.

The Knights still have a shot at the Henlopen North crown, as well, if it can beat Caesar Rodney next week and rival Sussex Tech on Nov. 9 and unbeaten Dover stumbles in its remaining games.

The Knights made quick work of Stephen Decatur Friday night. They led 21-0 at halftime on a 4-yard run by Ricketts and runs of 1 and 4 yards by James.

They then dashed any Decatur hopes for a comeback with an 86-yard kickoff return by Andrew Weatherly to start the second half.

Ricketts also scored on a 53-yard interception return. The Knights' final score was a 5-yard run by Terron Hall.
