Greensburg High School
In the 2nd annual Battle of the Ball with the Rushville Lions, the Greensburg Pirates fell 7-0. The first half saw some positives from Greensburg after allowing only 1 goal in the first 39 minutes of the first half. Greensburg had some offensive intensity and were able to get some shots off on a tough Rushville defense. After some adjusting, the Greensburg defense was also able to close quickly and force a few bad shots from Rushville, until the Lions scored again with only 10 seconds left in the first half. Down 2-0 at half, the floodgates opened in the second half and Rushville poured in 5 second half goals. The Pirates had no answer as they were shut out the second time in two games.
