Lost in the absence of Bishop Luers football coach Matt Lindsay from Friday's 27-7 win over Wayne was the play of the Generals.
Coming off a winless 2011 campaign, Wayne looks to be a program on the rise in the future despite a 1-4 overall record and 0-3 in the SAC.
With fewer than five minutes remaining in the game, the Generals trailed only 13-7 before two late scores put the game out of reach.
And if it weren't for a goal-line stand at the end of the first half, Wayne might have led at halftime instead of trailing 13-7.
Generals quarterback Jaylon Thomas threw for 117 yards and the running game behind Austin Yarbro and Marlon Rogers-Fincher moved the ball at times against the Knights.
And the Wayne defense held Luers to fewer than 180 yards of total offense.
Wayne is young, talented and destined for bigger and brighter things.
