Throughout last week, Central York football coaches wrote the No. 200 on the scouting reports and play sheets they handed out to players.
The print wasn't so big as to be a distraction, but rather small enough to be a constant reminder of what the Panthers' game against South Western meant.
Panthers head coach Brad Livingston, however, didn't notice it. Game preparation had his full attention, though he eventually broke down and asked what the number meant.
"Have we run that play 200 times?" he said.
The correct meaning was that the Panthers were going for his 200th win as the Central York head coach. And with a 42-0 road win Monday evening against the Mustangs, they made him the third coach in York-Adams League history to reach that mark.
George Shue, who had 226 wins with Littlestown and Red Lion, and Dennis Frew, who had 220 victories while at Delone Catholic, are the others.
"I knew it was on the horizon," Livingston said. "I'm not stupid. But it was just there. We were going to get there eventually. I'm glad we got there tonight."
The Panthers (5-2, 2-0 York-Adams Division I) didn't leave Monday's game -- which was scheduled for last Friday but postponed because of rain -- in doubt for long. After the Mustangs punted on their first possession, Panthers quarterback Dylan Hose rushed for an 11-yard touchdown and a 7-0 lead.
South Western (2-5, 0-2 Division I) fumbled the ensuing kickoff, and Hose completed a 12-yard touchdown to Zane Knaub for a 14-0 lead just 4 minutes, 40 seconds into the game.
"Knaub is so fast he runs past the defense," Hose said. "Nobody can keep up with him. I just had to throw the ball up, and he did the hard part."
The Panthers scored twice more in the second quarter, the final touchdown a 49-yard pass between Hose and Knaub as time expired, to take a 28-0 lead into halftime. Two second-half touchdowns gave the Panthers their final 14 points.
Knaub finished with five catches for 205 yards and three receiving touchdowns, while Hose was 8-of-12 passing for 206 yards and three passing touchdowns. Hose also had 10 carries for 51 yards and a touchdown.
The effort came after imploring his team to win for Livingston.
"I told the team, 'Coach Livingston deserved this win,'" Hose said. "We came out here firing. We had a lot of intensity. I'm happy we got it for him. He deserves it."
The Mustangs haven't been shut out at home since Sept. 23, 2005, according to MaxPreps. On Monday, they lost four of six fumbles, gained just eight first downs and had 114 yards.
Central York gained 414 yards.
"Our defense forced a lot of turnovers early, which helped the offense out," Hose said. "Gave us a lot of momentum, gave us good field position. Easy scores, I guess."
All to give Livingston win No. 200, which he earned in his 32nd year as a head coach.
"I'm thankful for it and overwhelmed by it," Livingston said. "It takes a tremendous amount of longevity to even think about that number. I'll gladly take my share of it, but certainly the bulk of the credit goes to the probably (800) or 900 people that were involved. It's a cool thing."
