LC doesn't let down against undermanned Cardinals

ST. JOHN | After last week's grueling 28-21 overtime win against Munster, Lake Central coach Brett St. Germain urged his team not to have any sort of letdown against an undermanned E.C. Central squad.

The Times No. 6 Indians listened to every bit and piece of that statement, amassing 51 points in the first half en route to a 64-8 rout of the Cardinals.

"We wanted our kids to not worry about the opponent, just worry about playing the game the right way," St. Germain said. "Just do things the right way, don't worry about the scoreboard and just play the game. The scoreboard takes care of itself."

At the forefront of that first half barrage was quarterback David Yancey, who threw two touchdown passes to wide receiver Dylan Morang and also ran for two scores.

"We obviously think David can do a lot of good things for us," St. Germain said. "There's no doubt he's very gifted with his feet and he can do some things in the running game. He's still a work in progress in the passing game, but we'll keep working with him and get him some more opportunities to throw the ball."

Yancey, a safety last year who didn't play any offense, is quickly learning the quarterback position. He separated his right shoulder in the third game of the 2010 season and appears to look strong now. The passing chemistry he's building with Morang is also getting much stronger.

"I was just trying to execute the coaches' play calling," Yancey said. "Our line did good, and Dylan made a beautiful catch.

"It's been growing a lot (the passing chemistry). I threw a touchdown to (Morang) in the Hobart scrimmage and almost had one to him (against) Munster. We're getting together -- chemistry is growing."

E.C. Central tallied its only touchdown of the game in the third quarter when quarterback Everett Coleman found Trequan Burnett for an 8-yard score. Coleman completed the 2-point conversion to Larunte Fairley to cap E.C.'s offense.

L.C. will face a much tougher test when it hosts Portage next Friday. From here on out, it's all DAC games.

"I think it was important for our kids to play well tonight as we move into our conference schedule," St. Germain said. "We told them to enjoy the win, and get back to work."
