Greensburg traveled to Brookville Tuesday night to take on the
Franklin County Wildcats and came away with a 5-1 victory. The Pirates
got the scoring started in the opening 10 minutes when Hunter
Springmeyer found John Robbins who was able to push it past the
Wildcat keeper. Franklin County was able to score to even things up
before heading into halftime. Greensburg was able to regain the lead
in the first 10 minutes of the 2nd half when John Robbins was again
able to score off of the Hunter Springmeyer assist. Robbins finished
up his hat trick moments later, scoring his 3rd goal and putting the
Pirates up 3-1 midway through the second half. Robbins joins Grayson
Newhart as the only Pirate with three goals in back to back games
The Pirate scoring wasn’t done as Hunter Springmeyer recorded his
third assist of the game, this time to Ethan Smith as the freshman was
able to score his first career goal off of the Springmeyer free kick.
The Pirates final goal of the game came from Hunter Springmeyer off of
an assist from Cy Miller.
In addition to the fantastic second half by the offense, the defense
recorded a second half shut out for the first time all season,
limiting Franklin County to just 5 total shots all game. Goalkeeper
Braylon Hahn registered 3 saves on the evening.
The win pushes the Pirates to 2-2 on the season with their next game
being on August 30th against Southwestern (Shelby).
