CALEDONIA — On a cold, rainy day , the visiting York Knights soundly captured a perfect season, knocking off the Caledonia-Mumford Red Raiders 38-6.

After the two-point conversion, the Knights started to roll. Matt McFarland completed a touchdown pass to Turner, and Swede notched a 10-yard touchdown run, making the halftime score 20-6.
Swede added another 45-yard rush, and Dylan Cicero pitched in with a 65-yard scamper and York’s defense buckled down, as Riley Eliot and Jake Hamilton led the way, combining for 20 tackles and 3 sacks.
