SELLERSBURG — Silver Creek wrapped up a historic regular season the way it started.
With a shutout.
The Dragons dominated visiting Corydon Central 57-0 on Friday, keeping an opponent off the scoreboard for the fifth time in nine games.
Following back-to-back losses, Creek blitzed the Panthers on Senior Night, scoring on four of its first five possessions and capping the night with a defensive touchdown on the game’s final play.
Jacob Garret had three touchdowns on the ground in his final regular-season game, while Brannon Russell and Josh Lander also had touchdown runs in the first half to help Creek to a 37-0 edge at halftime.
“It’s good to come back and play well really in every aspect after things didn’t go our way the last two weeks,” Creek coach John Dablow said. “It’s good to play well to wrap up the season.”
Intermission did little to slow down the Dragons, who marched 90 yards down the field on their first possession after halftime and scored on a 50-yard pass from Landers to Isesis Lukes for a 44-0 lead.
Jacob Graf later added Creek’s seventh score with a 10-yard run in the third and Logan Coots put the exclamation point on the win with a 52-yard interception return to the end zone as time expired.
“These guys came in every day to practice on their fall break, and having lost the first two games during this break, it’s good to see them have some fun and play well,” Dablow said.
Creek hosts Madison in the opening round of sectional next weekend.
“We’re 0-0 now,” Dablow said. “Madison is a good team from a great conference that plays a tough schedule. We’ve got a lot to prepare for.”
