Greene 27, Windsor 0
WINDSOR ≠– Greene ran for 312 yards, and forced five turnovers for its fifth shutout out win over the last three seasons.
After struggling to put points on the board in the first half and clinging to a six-point lead, the Trojans erupted for three scores in the third quarter. Using five plays on its first drive of the second half, Keegan Cerwinski scored on a 16-yard scramble, his second touchdown of the day. Windsor was forced to punt on its next drive, and Greene once again marched to paydirt. Kurt Shear scored from one yard out making it a 21-0 lead.
Shear forced a fumble of Windsor running back Garret Gaeta on the subsequent possession, and James Church recovered. On the next play, Jeff Carlin dashed 44 yards for the Trojans’ fourth score of the day.
Cerwinski had 110 yards rushing, and Shear finished with 71 on 17 carries. “We worked hard all week on tackling fundamentals and geting guys pursuing to the ball,” said Greene coach Tim Paske of his team’s defense, who praised the efforts of his defensive linemen, Kyle Stanton, Ricky Carbone, Justin Beers, Isaiah Webb, and Church. “We did a great job of executing.”
Friday night was also the third straight game in which Greene ran for big yardage. Through three games, the Trojans are averaging 306 yards rushing per game.
“We had trouble moving their defensive tackles in the first half,” Paske said. “We changed our scheme, and we started knocking them all over.”
