EAST CHICAGO | E.C. Central might have been somewhat unfocused Friday night to start its homecoming matchup against Lew Wallace, but the Cardinals eventually found their rhythm en route to a 34-0 victory over the Hornets.

E.C. Central started the game by fumbling on the opening kickoff, and the Hornets recovered the ball on the Cardinals’ 6-yard line.

E.C. Central’s defense stepped up and didn’t let Lew Wallace capitalize on the turnover.

Cardinals coach Stacy Adams referred to his team’s initial lack of focus as the “homecoming curse,” but he was pleased with his players’ ability to overcome the obstacles of the game.

“You can never be upset with a win,” Adams said.

Anthony Hunt provided most of the scoring for the Cardinals. He ran for three touchdowns, two of which came in the second quarter. Hunt also scored on a two-point conversion.

Adams was once again pleased with the performance of his defense, which only allowed three first downs and held the Hornets to 24 yards of passing.

Adams said the Cardinals did a good job of adjusting at the half, but he believes there is more progress to be made.

“We have to keep improving,” Adams said.

Martayveus Carter gave the Cardinals a scare when he was injured on a 45-yard pass play.

Carter was able to walk off the field with assistance. After the game, Adams said Carter was walking fine on the sideline and wanted to re-enter the game.

He said Carter will go through testing to diagnose the injury.
