Greenwich 36 Warrensburg 20: In a get-together of undefeated squads Friday night in Greenwich, the Witches won the turnover battle, and that proved to be the difference as the hosts posted the well-earned victory over the Burghers.
Throughout most of the first half the teams traded punches, until Greenwich finished the half with back to back scores.
The Witches Matt Conlin and Jesse Kuzmich sandwiched scoring runs around a 3-yard TD carry by Warrrensburg’s Dylan Winchell, to lead 14-8 at the end of the first quarer.
Warrensburg knotted things at 14-14 less than two minutes into the second frame on a Tim Kelly touchdown run, but Greenwich quickly answered on a Deontae Bennett 20-yard romp for points, and following a turnover, Kuzmich ran for his second score of the night, giving the Witches a 29-14 halftime advantage.
Early in the third, Warrensburg used a Tristen Hitchcock 29-yard TD tote, to trim the deficit at 29-20 to which Greenwich responded with a 40-yard touchdown strike from Kuzmich to Bennett for what turned out to be the final points of the contest.
With the win Greenwich moves to 5-0 on the season, while the Burghers suffer their first loss of the year and slip to 5-1.
