To win in Knight Checker (sometimes called Football Chess)
both players should first move a knight to the last opposite
row (touchdown) without being captured or tackled. Knights
moves are regular. Shown below is the initial position.

For the puzzle , white has a position advantage below but two
pieces down. Can you find the winning line?

White seems to win in whichever way, provided it has the first move from that position.

Spoiler for example

It seems hard for White not to win.

Spoiler for more winning lines

If Black had their own tangible threats, that could reduce the number of solutoins to the problem.
