Of course, that's probably because it spent so little time on the field.
The Dragons ran just 30 plays and benefited from three defensive touchdowns in a 48-0 rout of the injury-riddled Mountain Lions.
The win marked the third consecutive game in which the Dragons have scored more than 40 points, dating back to a 43-6 victory over Lynn Camp on Oct. 1.
With sophomore Zac Churchwell under center, the Mountain Lions managed just 87 yards of offense against the Dragons.
Churchwell started at quarterback for the third straight game in place of the injured David Adams, who had been expected to return. Churchwell was intercepted six times, including three by sophomore Will Pope.
Harlan coach J.B. Donahue praised his secondary's improved performance.
"Everybody talks about how good we are defensively, but I challenged our secondary two weeks ago that they were the weak link in our defense, and they were going to have to shape it up and quit being the weak link. They did that last week and this week, and made a lot of plays," he said.
Pineville coach Tuck Woolum noted that he hadn't anticipated starting Churchwell against the Dragons.
"We didn't have any running backs this week, so we had to do something different. We tried to spread it out and throw it, then we get here tonight and Adams can't go, and we worked him all week. That hurt us," he said.
"Zac threw the interceptions, but in his defense, he hadn't practiced all week, and we ended up having to go with him. He's a sophomore, and when you put a young kid in there, you make mistakes."
Adams was healthy enough to see action at running back, where he led the team with nine yards on nine carries.
Churchwell connected with freshman Matthew Combs for a 39-yard gain on the Lions' first play from scrimmage. It proved to be the only time in the game that Pineville had the momentum.
After the Lions turned the ball over on downs to end their first possession, the Dragons needed only one play, a 67-yard flea-flicker from sophomore quarterback Jon Lundy to Pope, to claim the lead. Andrew Grieshop's extra point gave Harlan a 7-0 advantage.
Lundy completed all three of his pass attempts for 83 yards and two touchdowns.
"Like last week (a 49-0 win over McCreary Central), we wanted to work on our passing game, but the score dictates after a certain point that you can't. But early on, we were throwing the ball, and Jon threw the ball much better tonight on a sloppy field," Donahue said.
Grieshop, who didn't touch the ball as a running back, was his typically steady self as a kicker, converting on six of seven extra point attempts.
Three plays into the Lions' ensuing series, Teddy Thompson picked off a Churchwell pass at the Pineville 32 and zipped into the end zone for a 14-0 Harlan lead.
Churchwell was picked off again, this time by Pope, at the Pineville 22 on the second play of the Lions' possession.
Two short runs set up Lundy's second touchdown pass of the game, a 12-yard toss to senior Ryland Pope that put Harlan up 21-0 less than halfway through the first quarter.
The second period opened with Pineville facing fourth down. Ryland Pope picked off Churchwell's pass and scampered 65 yards down the sideline for Harlan's second defensive touchdown, giving the Dragons a 28-0 lead.
The turnover monster reared its head again on the Lions' next possession when Adams fumbled the ball back to the Dragons at the Pineville 6. A personal foul on the Lions moved the ball to the 3, and Thompson punched it into the end zone from there.
Thompson led Harlan's ground attack with 97 yards on five carries, missing the 100-yard plateau for the first time all season.
The Dragons added one more touchdown in the half after Lundy intercepted a pass at the Harlan 47. Two runs by Casey Belcher set up Marvin Smith's 23-yard burst up the middle, and Grieshop's kick gave the Dragons a 41-0 lead at halftime.
With the game well in hand, Harlan's second team offense logged significant playing time in the second and fourth quarters.
"It's always good to get those guys in there. I went in there at halftime and got onto those guys a little bit. I thought they got out there and kind of rested because they thought it was over because they were on the field, and I don't want them to have that attitude. When they go out there, we want them to keep playing just like the other guys are playing in front of them," Donahue said.
Thompson scored his third touchdown of the game on a 68-yard jaunt in the third quarter to invoke the KHSAA's mercy rule and keep the clock running. Will Pope closed the scoring on a 37-yard interception return with 6:20 remaining in the game.
"They're strong they're probably the strongest physical football team we've played all year. They're too physical for us," Woolum said.
Harlan (7-1 overall, 3-1 district) returns to action next week at Somerset before closing the season at home against Williamsburg. Donahue said the team's recent offensive improvement gives the Dragons added confidence.
"Offensively, we have been clicking much better, and if our passing game continues to improve that'll only get better. The road gets tougher for us from here on out, so now it's time to get down and get serious. We hope we can continue this offensive success that we've had," he said.
Pineville (0-8 overall, 0-4 district) will play host to Cumberland next week.
