GREENFIELD — Greenfield-Central and Plainfield went into their Friday night meeting in the same situation.
Both teams, in the midst of another disappointing season, were looking for just their second win of the year.
That was essentially the only similarity. Plainfield was the bigger and more athletic side, and the Quakers turned that into a 63-50 romp and left the Cougars behind at 1-11.
G-C competed well with Plainfield (2-8) early on, but wasn’t able to overcome a number of deficiencies, both inherent and of their own making.
Besides the size and speed disadvantage, a number of unforced turnovers and missed free throws stymied the Cougars.
