The Knockout goes 4-0 this season with the win, including their first shutout of the season. They beat the Harrisburg Havoc 27-6 in their season opener on April 9. In their Week 2 game, they defeated the Maine Mayhem, 21-6. Week 3 culminated in a 40-6 win over the Northern Connecticut Nightmare.

With kicker Alaina Lange sidelined, the Knockout fell short on two-point attempts after their first three touchdowns, leading to an 18-0 lead. Hannah Bowen took over punting duties after NY’s fourth touchdown. They were leading 25-0 at the end of the first half, including a score on an 85-yard run from QB Eden Messemer. Another touchdown in the second half resulted in the 32-0 victory.
