GREENE – A huge first half push from the the Greene girls basketball team allowed the Trojans to fully enjoy a night of celebration – walking out of their hometown gymnasium the victors of a matchup with Unadilla Valley by a score of 53-27.
Prior to the start of the contest on Tuesday, Feb. 9, the Trojan fans celebrated their two graduating seniors – Nicole Flohr and Mary Klecha.
If one were to watch only the second half of the play, it would seem to be more of a competitive game which unfolded. However, Greene simply shut down any and nearly all offensive efforts of UV in the first half – allowing just five points to be scored by the visitors.
Greene, instead of a dominant force on the offensive end in the first half, saw an even distribution of scoring come from six different athletes, en route to their 19-5 lead when the buzzer sounded.
That is when Unadilla Valley found a groove – emerging from the half, and down 14 points – UV proceeded to drop 12 points, their highest in a period on the home team.
