“We played our first true complete game Friday,” said head coach Josh Shattuck, who picked up his first NIC win. “Our defense forced four turnovers in the first half that resulted in great field position for our offense. It was exciting to see the hard work of the players reflected on the scoreboard.”

Elkhart Central is now 3-4 on the season (1-2 NIC) and will travel to Penn Friday night.
