Greensburg Jr. High Football

Tuesday night August 22ndth the Greensburg Junior High Football team traveled to South Dearborn to take on the Knights.  

The Pirate 8th grade jumped out to an early 22-0 lead with TD passes to Chance Richards and two to Max Buening and hung on to bring home a victory 22-16.

The Pirates were led Offensively by Quarterback Matthew Fields who threw for 179 yards through the air with 3 touchdowns, and 2 extra point conversions through the air to Mason Herpel and Richards. 

Catching passing on the night were Buening, Josh Alexander, Herpel, Richards.  

The rushing yards were again hard to come by against a stubborn Knights defensive front.  Mason Herpel and Josh Alexander did most of the work for the running backs but also receiving carries on the night were Carson Beagle, James Harmeyer and Fields.

Defensively Carson Beagle, Levi Muckerheide, Tank Wyllie, Dustin Herrera-Nah, Max Grimes, Alexander, Herpel, Buening and Richards and Henry Cunningham.  Herpel, Beagle and Herrera-Nah led an early game surge to lead the team in Tackles for losses and Sacks.

South Dearborn was held to 170 yards of Offensive, mostly in the second half.

The Pirate 7th Grade lost another tough game on the night 44-16. The game was much closer than the score indicated as the Pirates lost their starting Quarterback midway through the second quarter and were unable to right the ship in the second half.

Leading the young Pirates offensively were Jai Jackson, Bentley Sageser, Chance Westerfeld, Aaden Dolan, Zach Watkins and Blaine Keller.

Jai Jackson rushed for two scores and 1 extra point and Sageser ran in a 2 pt conversion prior to his injury.

Leading the Defense were Jackson, Watkins, Westerfeld, Daelyn Bandy, Blaine Keller, Luke Stier.

The Pirates are on the road again Saturday 8/26 at Lawrenceburg which should be another tough test for the young Pirates.

Please come out and support our young student athletes.
