Greene 49, Harpursville 17

GREENE - Greene completed a perfect 4-0 run through division play Thursday night on the strength of a suffocating defensive performance.

The Trojans held Harpursville to just one field goal in the first half in building an 18-5 lead, and just four total field goals for the game.

"We played a great defensive game," said Greene coach Dave Gorton. "We had tipped passes, stole the ball, and controlled the boards tonight."

The Trojans' offense put together their best eight minutes in the third putting 20 points on the board to extend the lead to 29.

Olivia Kennedy scored seven of her game-high 15 points, and Lyla Biefeldt came off the bench for five points, which included one of her two three-pointers in the game.
