Winning consecutive games won’t be an easy task for the Spartans, who travel to St. Leon tonight to take on perennial power East Central in an Eastern Indiana Athletic Conference 4A Division game.
While coach Adam Kelly’s Spartans were shutting out the Rockets, the 6th-rated (Associated Press) Trojans also played a game that saw a team go scoreless — East Central blasted South Dearborn, 79-0. On Sept. 11, Connersville lost to South Dearborn, 27-7.
CHS scores 21.2 points-a-game while giving up 32.2. The Trojans average 33.2 a contest with opponents scoring 19 a game against them.
EC’s only loss is to Cincinnati La Salle, 43-20. La Salle (5-0) is rated No. 1 in Ohio and No. 8 in the nation, according to MaxPreps. com.
