Conley, Boles-Lattimore connect on 4 TDs

GREENFIELD — After scoring four touchdowns three different ways against Shelbyville, Derek Conley decided to keep it simple and record four scores by a singular method Saturday against Rushville.

The senior quarterback threw for over 200 yards and four touchdowns — all of them to Brant Boles-Lattimore — as the Cougars dispatched the Lions at G-C Saturday, 33-22.

The game — which doubled as Homecoming for the blue-and-gold — was postponed from Friday night due to severe weather.

G-C (3-3, 2-2 Hoosier Heritage Conference) came out as if they had bottled up some of Friday’s rampant lightning storms with two first-quarter touchdown strikes against the visitors.

After the Cougar defense forced a fumble on the Lions’ third play from scrimmage, Conley — whose four scores against Shelbyville came on two passes, a run and a kickoff return — found Boles-Lattimore for a seven-yard touchdown less than three minutes into the game.

Rushville (1-5, 0-4 HHC) followed with a three-and-out and a poor punt, giving G-C the ball on the Lion 47.

Three plays later, Josh McDonald took an end-around the distance from 36 yards out to push the home team’s advantage to 13-0 less than eight minutes into the game.

“We just came out ready to play,” Boles-Lattimore said.

The Lions did not go quietly, however. Rushville quarterback Clay Tressler hit Austin Wilson for a 64-yard catch-and-run before the end of the first quarter. Then, Tressler located an open Wilson again from 20 yards out on 4th-and-5 to give the visitors a 14-13 lead with 4:15 left in the second frame.

The Greenfield-Central defense came up with a big play before half to swing momentum, though.
