More news about: Greensboro

The Greensboro College football team was dealt its first loss of the season on Saturday at Bridgewater 33-7.  The Pride trailed 30-7 at the break but held tough in the second half with an Eagle field goal representing the only points down the stretch.

Bridgewater put the first two touchdowns of the game on the board in the first quarter to race out to a 14-0 lead.  The Eagles went up 7-0 on a three-yard touchdown run by Ryan Green-Ellis at the 7:34 mark.  

Bridgewater extended the lead to 14-0 with 1:13 left as Jordan Hartman returned a Pride punt 69-yards for a touchdown.

Greensboro narrowed the gap to 14-7 just over seven minutes into the second frame as Eddie West capped off a seven-play, 50-yard scoring drive with a one-yard plunge.

The Eagles answered back 1:16 later with a touchdown and would add another score with 33 seconds left in the half to head into the locker room with a 30-7 advantage.

The Pride opened the second half with a pair of drives into Bridgewater territory.  However, both opportunities ended on failed fourth down conversions, with the second drive stalling at the Eagles 18-yard line.  

The defenses took over from there, with the only points of the second half coming on a 36-yard field goal by Bridgewater's John Griggs with 10:10 remaining in the game.

The Eagles outgained Greensboro in total offense for the day by a count of 300-240.  The Pride racked up 174 yards through the air and 66 on the ground.

Quarterback Ryan Throndset connected on 15 of his 27 passing attempts with one interception.  Dexter Russell Jr. was his primary target with eight receptions for 99 yards. West led the ground attack with 69 yards on 23 carries and a score.

Defensively, Julian Cinnotti recorded a team high ten tackles.  Travis Welch caused the lone Bridgewater turnover with an interception.  He also added four tackles, including two for loss.

Greensboro is now 1-1 on the season.  The Pride will open up their home schedule on Saturday, September 15 against The Apprentice School.  Game time is slated for 1 p.m. at Jamieson Stadium - located at Grimsley High School in Greensboro, NC.
