MINONK — The battle of No. 1 vs. No. 2 in Class 2A is on for next weekend.

Kenton Castrejon ran for 91 yards and three touchdowns as Fieldcrest set up a battle of the state's top two teams with a 35-14 second-round home victory.

Jaxon Cusac-McKay added 119 total yards and a TD for the No. 2 Knights, who advance to host top-ranked Clifton Central (11-0) in the quarterfinals next weekend. Central beat Aledo Mercer County, 39-28.

Castrejon gave Fieldcrest a 14-0 halftime leas with a pair of short rushing TDs in the second quarter. Cusac-McKay pushed the lead to 21-0 early in the third before St. Edward got on the board.

A 58-yard TD run from Fieldcrests's Tisen Covington pushed the lead back to three scores.

Knoxville 20, Watseka 14

The Blue Bullets (11-0) rallied from a 14-0 deficit to advance to its first quarterfinal under coach Ryan Hebard.

Senior fullback Zack Dean scored from 6 yards out with 2:05 remaining — and added a two-point conversion run to put the Blue Bullets up 20-14.

Knoxville’s defense took over from there. A pair of sacks and two Watseka (7-4) penalties led to a long fourth-down play that went incomplete, ending Watseka's comeback chances.
