Kenston Forest School’s varsity football team suffered some key injuries Friday night that affected its showdown with St. Anne’s-Belfield School, allowing the visiting Saints to leave with a 42-6 victory.

The Kavaliers ended up being without their starting quarterback when sophomore Moewuante Morrison was sidelined just prior to the game due to a health emergency.

The next key injury for Kenston Forest came midway through the third quarter when junior running back Jah’Tavious Houston went down with a concussion.

“The kids played very well the first half,” Kavs Head Coach Tom Inge said. “Then the second half, I think with Jah going down with the injury, he was our main offensive weapon.”

Houston accounted for the Kavaliers’ lone score Friday via a 70-yard run and had an 80- to 90-yard touchdown run called back due to holding.

The Kavs trailed only 14-6 minutes before halftime and threatened to tie the game, but a penalty and a miscue helped the Saints go up 20-6 instead.

Due to Hurricane Florence, Kenston Forest (1-1) will not play Friday but will return to action Friday, Sept. 21, for its homecoming game.
