ST. LEON - Having experienced the downside of a high school football mismatch the previous weekend, East Central’s Trojans got the opposite view in Friday’s 37-13 conference win over Franklin County.

With their first win of the season after yet another 0-3 start, Coach Justin Roden’s EC varsity bounced back from its 48-8 shelling at Cincinnati LaSalle Sept. 5 to take their first step toward an Eastern Indiana Athletic Conference 4A Division title repeat.

Junior quarterback Luke Patton - East Central’s top passer and best running threat - scored four rushing touchdowns and threw for one more as the host Trojans handled FC’s Wildcats from the get-go.

Franklin County (2-2, 0-2 EIAC 4A) opened badly, with Josh Orschell driving the first quarter kickoff out of bound for a penalty.
