Pirates gridders fight to the end

The Greensburg football team suffered a season-ending defeat on its home turf Friday night.

Greensburg led early and fought to pull away from Indianapolis Marshall, but the visiting Patriots seized momentum and maintained a lead the entire second half. The Pirates fell 32-27 at Shriver Field, despite a late comeback. Three turnovers in the final six possessions aided the Patriots.

The Patriots scored 12 points in a decisive second quarter, leading 26-14 at the half.

Senior Blake Wood began the night’s scoring with a 64-yard scamper that gave Greensburg the early lead, and senior Andy Meadows converted the 2-point conversion on a keeper.

After two big Marshall scores, junior Trent Black tied it up with a four-yard run.

Meadows scored on a one-yard run with 5:26 left in the third quarter, and senior Collin Rigney added the extra point to make it 26-21. A 32-yard pass from Meadows to Devin Ruble, then a Meadows three-yard keeper for a first down to the Marshal 1-yard line, set up the score. The drive went 11 plays for 76 yards.

Marshall scored once again, making it 32-21. However, Greensburg junior Mason Garwood caught a 20-yard pass from Meadows to make it 32-27. The conversion was no good.

Greensburg had one last chance in the waning seconds, but was unable to convert for a first down for a final shot.

Unofficially, Wood ran 12 times for 138 yards. Black gained 95 yards on 17 carries, while Devin Ruble gained 24 yards.

Meadows passed for 163 yards, with Ruble accounting for 52 of those and Black 41. Wood added 34 yards and Drew Foster chipped in 22.

All statistics are unofficial.

Greensburg ends the season at 6-4 a year after winning the sectional championship on the same field. Marshall improves to 6-3.

The Pirates’ season marks a second straight winning season for the first time in head coach Scott Moore’s tenure at Greensburg, following last year’s sectional championship win.
