RICHMOND — On most nights, Greenfield-Central has enough offensive firepower to win just about any game.

What’s kept the Cougars out of the win column so far this season is a porous defense — and that trend continued Thursday night in the first round of the seventh annual Bob Wettig Memorial Tournament at Richmond’s Tiernan Center.

Norwell cruised by G-C 81-50, dropping the blue and gold to 0-7 on the season.

The 81 points were the most surrendered by the Cougars since an 88-25 loss to Pendleton Heights on Jan. 27, 2012.

Paced by David Vogel’s 29 points, the Knights (4-1) shot 49 percent (24-of-49) from the field and 63 percent (10-of-16) from 3-point land.

Norwell advanced to play 4A No. 16 Jeffersonville (5-1) today at 7 p.m. Greenfield-Central’s opponent today at noon is Fox Creek Christian (Ky.), which lost 118-46 to Jeffersonville Thursday. Both games are at the Tiernan Center.

“It’s a lot of little details. We’ve got to get better at just matching up on defense. We can’t give up 80 points per game. Our defense has to get a lot better. We’ve got to find the heart to play better defense,” G-C coach Josh Johnson said.
