MUNCIE — The 18th time was not a charm for Greenfield-Central's football program against Delta Friday night.
An inability to contain an opponent's run attack was an issue again for the Cougars, who dropped a 28-3 decision to the Eagles in the second round of Class 4A-Sectional 13.
The Cougars, who have never beaten Delta in 18 tries, ended 4-7, while the Eagles (8-3) move on to a sectional final match at Mt. Vernon (10-1) next Friday.
G-C, which allowed 263 rushing yards and another 116 passing, did come up with three interceptions and a fumble. However, all the Cougars could do with that were a field goal.
The Cougars netted 66 yards of total offense and did not cross the red zone on a play from scrimmage the entire game.
"I thought the defense played one of the better games of the year, actually," G-C coach Roger Dodson said. "Offensively, we couldn't get anything going. They controlled the line of scrimmage and we had a chance to make a couple of plays, but we couldn't make them."
