LOWELL — Condon/Wheeler’s greatest achievement Friday night in their 56-0 skewering at the hands of Lowell is that they held the 1A No. 1 seed to their lowest points scored for the year.

“I’m not much for moral victories, but I guess you could call this an amoral victory,” Knights coach Larry Conaway said.

The Devils (10-0) averaged 76 points at the beginning of their first playoff game, but Friday marked the first time they held a team scoreless.

“The last three or four weeks have really showed our weakness, the offensive line,” Conaway said.

Aside from passing yardage, a goose egg, no stats were available from the Knights’ management.

“Our punting was the best it’s ever been,” Conaway joked, looking for the silver lining.

Although they were knocked out early, this was Condon/Wheeler’s first trip to the playoffs with Conaway. He is a third-year coach who has been able to increase the Knights’ win record every season he has been with them.
