GREENFIELD — It wasn’t the prettiest win, but Greenfield-Central will gladly take it.
The Cougars snapped a five-game losing skid Friday night, defeating visiting New Palestine 45-27 in a contest that featured 38 turnovers and 39 fouls.
“It was an ugly game, no doubt about it. But we needed it,” G-C coach Doug Laker said. “It was one of those games where you couldn’t get a rhythm offensively or defensively.”
Laker’s squad was hot out of the gates, dashing out to a 14-0 advantage before Gia Nitschke’s three-point play got the Dragons on the board with 14.9 seconds left in the opening quarter.
Emily Koers’ jumper gave the home team an 18-3 advantage after the initial frame, with Sara Jones (six points) and Savannah Girolami (five points) leading the way.
