(Greensburg, Ind.) –  It was a game that will be remembered for a long time in Aurora.

On Friday night, the South Dearborn Knights defeated Greensburg 74-0.

The Knights broke the previous school record for points in a game (62), scoring a new school record 11 touchdowns in the rout of the Pirates. The previous school record for touchdowns in a game was nine, set in 1996 and 2022.

Junior running back Carson Cheek did a bulk of the damage against the Pirates, breaking the rushing point record of 30 points by scoring 42 points on a school record seven touchdown runs.

Junior TE Ryan Richard also had a record night by going 8-for-11 on extra point attempts. The eight makes tied the record set by current Knights kicker Taytum Barker and former Knight Zach Dick (2018).
