On homecoming night, Indian Land continued its recent streak of dominance with a 48-0 shutout of North Central, despite an injury scare to one of its pivotal playmakers.
It was more of the same for the Warriors, as the backfield tandem of Rondreas Truesdale and Trey Eaves slashed their way to six combined rushing touchdowns. North Central's offense clicked in fits and spurts, but two costly fumbles were converted by the Warriors into two touchdowns to overpower the Knights quickly.
The Warriors' defense also smothered the Knights throughout the game, halting four 4th down conversions and holding the offense to less than 250 total yards.
With 4:45 left in the second quarter, Eaves went down with a left leg injury while defending a run by North Central senior running back Tavarus Porter. After being helped off the field, Eaves did not return.
The injury was listed as a bruised ligament, and the senior tailback is listed as day-to-day. After the game, Truesdale discussed the importance of Eaves to Indian Land's offensive ability.
"Trey takes a load off of my shoulders every week; he boosts the momentum of our entire offense," said Truesdale, who notched his second 300-plus yard rushing game of the season. "He's the little engine that keeps us going."
