CHARLOTTESVILLE — A school record for points in a game. A share of the Mid-Indiana Football Conference championship. Regaining the Plowshare and Anvil Trophy.

Not a bad night, Eastern Hancock. Not bad at all.

The Class A No. 7 Royals (5-0, 4-0 MIFC) blanked rival Knightstown 65-0 Friday night at Ed Knarr Field by piling up 526 yards of offense and shutting out a Panther squad that had averaged nearly 39 points per game in five straight victories over EH.

With the triumph, the blue and white clinched at least a share of its first MIFC title — its initial league crown since claiming the White River Conference in 2006. Eastern Hancock can earn the outright championship by prevailing at North Decatur (2-3, 0-2 MIFC) Friday.

Third-year coach Pat Echeverria got over the .500 mark (14-13) with the win, and conceded it could’ve been the best game the Royals have played under his watch.
