Defense getting better

After allowing 105 points in its first three games, Greenwood’s defense wanted to show its talents in Friday’s football home-opener against Mid-State Conference rival Mooresville.

Mission accomplished.

The Woodmen shut out the Pioneers for the first 43 minutes, allowing just two touchdowns against mostly second-teamers after they already had built a 33-0 lead. The Greenwood defense produced six sacks, two interceptions and a fumble while allowing just

19 rushing yards en route to a 33-13 victory.

Mooresville (0-4 overall, 0-2 Mid-State) passed for 288 yards, with quarterback Cody Cannon completing 22 of 33 passes, but more than half of those yards came in the fourth quarter after Greenwood built its 33-0 lead.
