FB: 8/24 Saturday Morning QB: MIFC roundup
August 25, 2012By Andrew Smith of Hancock County Sports
Eastern Hancock has put together back-to-back impressive victories, outscoring foes 101-12 in the opening two games of the season. Temporarily, that puts the Royals atop the MIFC standings. EH will have two pretty solid matchups the next two weeks -- against a strong Indian Creek team that is 0-2, but has lost to 5A Terre Haute South and 4A Greenwood, and is usually one of the top 3A teams in the state. Next up after that is a contest against the Milan Indians on Sept. 7, which we'll broadcast live here at Hancock County Sports.
Eastern Hancock 61, South Decatur 7: Everything's clicking for the Royals in the opening two games, as they're 2-0 for the first time since 2004. Spencer Gilbert ran for 261 yards and four TDs. QB Logan Splater threw for three touchdowns, and Dalton Korlowicz added a long TD run. HCS roundup | Daily Reporter (subscription only)
Milan 26, Batesville 0: The Indians, among the top teams in Class A, scored early on Scott Pennington's INT return, and the defense pitched a shutout. Milan added three scores in the fourth quarter. Sam Thompson had a TD for Milan in the 19-point fourth quarter onslaught. Milan QB Gavin Detraz also had a long touchdown run in the final period. SEI Local Sports
