Knauf scored twice and Owen Sutton once off a Knauf assist in a 3:35 span of the second half to break open a 4-2 game.
Closing in on a milestone: Rich McCabe is approaching 600 career victories as the boys soccer coach at Fort Ann, where he is in his 39th season. The Cardinals' 8-3-1 start this fall has raised his total to 592, potentially putting him in range to book a big round number during the postseason.
The victory total was bolstered significantly by a 44-game winning streak in 2015-16, and his teams have earned 16 Section 2 championships.
"Coaching is all about stealing other people's good ideas,” McCabe joked. "I've taken stuff from my high school coach, Larry Smith, who coached (at South Glens Falls) for 33 years and won 19 Foothills Council championships. He was a great mentor to me and my brothers. Our saying has been: never stop improving. That's our mantra."
There are five second-generation players on the current roster, including the fathers of both Lunts (Tanner and Jake), both Blondins (Caleb and Ryan) and Jackson Paige. On the 2015 state championship team, there were 11 players whose fathers played for McCabe.
"It's my passion. Until I feel like I get to a point where it's not an enjoyment anymore or it feels like a job, that's probably when I will walk away.," he told The Post-Star.
