Football season ends with sectional opener
Updated on: 10.20.12

The Greensburg running game proved to be too much for the host Eagles as Brown County lost 36-0 in the first round of sectionals Friday night.

The Pirates scored on their opening drive when tight end Justin Dance broke away for a 41-yard touchdown run, capped by a two-point conversion to put Greensburg up 8-0.

Brown County quarterback Dillion Boknecht completed several passes in the Eagles' first two drives to receiver Brent Cade and running back Dylan Quackenbush. However, they couldn’t finish their drives.

Boknecht left the game after a hard hit in the second quarter and was not able to return until the middle of the third quarter. Despite the injury, he threw for 76 yards.

Three forced fumbles by the Brown County defense at the end of the first half gave the team hope, but the offense never was able to capitalize.

Greensburg scored again on a one-yard run by Andrew Henningsen just before the break, and the Eagles never threatened again.

Greensburg’s Elliott Green ran for 117 yards on 18 carries, followed by Ryan Martin with 98 yards and John Moeller with 80 yards and one touchdown. Dance ran for 53 yards and two touchdowns.

“Obviously, it’s disappointing to end the season this way,” said Brown County Head Coach Ken Wendling. “We have 17 seniors this year, and they have brought this team a long way and given us a lot to work with, so I’m very proud of them.”

Brown County ends its season at 2-8, while the Pirates move on with a record of 8-2.
