GREENFIELD — Lebanon scored the first three touchdowns of the game and rolled to a 34-14 win over Greenfield-Central on Friday.
Statistically, the host Cougars were dominated in nearly every fashion, resulting in their worst home field loss in two years.
The matchup, however, was more about just how good Lebanon was rather than G-C’s deficiencies.
Junior quarterback Isaac Harker threw for 179 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions on 10 completions, while an assortment of Tigers runners accumulated 312 yards, while averaging 6.8 yards a pop.
The veteran Lebanon club improved to 2-0 for only the second time since 1998, and its record is clearly no fluke.
“All the meaningful stats, the turnover battle and all that, we were in the bottom end of that,” G-C coach Roger Dodson said. “We had too many mental mistakes, but we played a pretty good football team,” The quarterback’s a sharp, accurate thrower.”
