HOWARD — A break from the rigors of play in the tough Mid-Ohio Athletic Conference may be just what the doctor ordered for a lot of teams. But, for Centerburg, it’s means another trip back to the rough and tumble ways of the old Mid-Buckeye Conference.
The Trojans, who beat former MBC foes Utica and Danville earlier this year, now travel to East Knox to take on the county rival Bulldogs.
“This is big. Whether it’s East Knox, Danville or Fredericktown, it doesn’t matter. It’s a county game. It doesn’t lessen the value of the game (by not being a conference game). You only get 10 shots in the regular season, so each week is extremely important for us,” said Centerburg coach Jim Stoyle.
Besides being for county bragging rights, the game is also one more step toward a special season and the possibilty of more than 10 weeks for the Trojans (8-0). They have been able to dispatch all eight opponents so far, and East Knox is the next obstacle in the way.
“There’s only one game on the schedule — East Knox. That’s been our mentality all year. Our focus has been all about East Knox this week,” said Stoyle.
