Woodmen fall short to Flashes

In terms of championships, the Greenwood girls basketball team accomplished most of its goals, including winning Mid-State Conference and Johnson County Tournament titles.

But against Franklin Central on Saturday night, the Woodmen fell short of their ultimate target: To repeat as Class 4A sectional champions.

Greenwood led 15-10 after the first quarter, but that was before the ninth-ranked Flashes stepped up their full-court defense.

Franklin Central outscored the Woodmen 43-21 the rest of the way and cruised to a 53-36 win to claim the sectional crown at Franklin Community High School.

“I just felt like Franklin Central’s defensive pressure took us out of the game,” 10th-year Greenwood coach Debbie Guckenberger said. “They just had a great defensive effort. Our kids didn’t respond the way we would have liked.

“We just didn’t match their intensity on the defensive end.”
