GREENFIELD — One thing Greenfield-Central hopefully will take out of its last three games, all decisive defeats, is the tough schedule has prepared the Cougars well for next week’s sectional.
Pendleton Heights gave G-C another rough go on senior night Friday on Clayton Myers Field at Cougar Stadium.
The Arabians, aided by seven Cougar turnovers — one of which could qualify for next week’s ESPN Not Top 10 — swung away to a 45-0 victory that put a merciful end to G-C’s regular season.
The Cougars (3-6, 2-5 Hoosier Heritage Conference) over the last three weeks were outscored a combined 146-20 by HHC champion Mt. Vernon, New Palestine and PH (7-2, 5-2 HHC).
G-C now will focus on Muncie Central (2-7), which will host the Cougars next Friday in the opening round of Class 4A-Sectional 13.
“We’d like to be playing a little better football than we have been the last three games, the sectionals certainly,” G-C coach Roger Dodson said, “We’ve played some very good football teams, but (Friday) we were our own worst enemy.”
