HARTLAND — Hartland has had better nights offensively this football season, but the Eagles didn’t need to light up the scoreboard the way their defense played Friday night.
Hartland recorded only its second shutout in the last 103 games with a 14-0 victory over Novi.
The Eagles’ other shutout dating back to the 2008 playoffs was a 35-0 victory over Salem last season.
“The defense played great,” Hartland coach Brian Savage said. “We kept Novi, who obviously has scored some points and given people trouble, out of the end zone and did a great job.”
