GREENFIELD — Another season opener, another landslide for Greenfield-Central’s football team over New Castle.
Showing explosiveness on both sides of the ball, the Cougars opened their bid for a third consecutive winning campaign by rolling over the Trojans 40-7 at Clayton Myers Field at Cougar Stadium Friday night.
It was the third straight year G-C put up at least 40 on NC, and the Cougars for the 12th time in 16 years opened with a win over the Trojans.
“Any time that you win we’re happy with it,” coach Roger Dodson said. “But we weren’t really crisp (Friday). We (committed) some turnovers and made mistakes that we can’t make.”
G-C got all of its 374 total yards on the ground, led by junior Brant Boles-Lattimore with 119 on just four carries, and senior quarterback Derek Conley’s 105 on 15 attempts. Conley scored twice and Boles-Lattimore once.
“We ran the ball pretty good, and I give the line a lot of credit,” Conley said. “We still have a lot of work to do, and we’re not satisfied.”
