Greensville County High School ended its 5-game losing streak with a 24-14 win over Windsor High School in a Tri-Rivers District football tilt Friday night.

Windsor has lost four straight and now stands at 2-5 overall for the season.

The Dukes were able to force a few turnovers but could not contain the Eagles in the first half of the game.  The Eagles were up 8-0 at the end of the first quarter and the Dukes were able to get on the board with 8 points during the second quarter. But the Greensville offense put up 16 points during the same quarter and took the lead into the locker room at the half 24-8.

The second half was all Dukes, but a little too late.

A 53-yard touchdown pass from Kershaw Reid to Woody Greene during the third quarter brought in a much needed momentum boost even though the 2-point conversion was no good.

There would be no other scoring during the second half leaving the Dukes in the deficit 24-14 at the end of the game.

Windsor had a total of 27 carries for a net yardage of 49 yards.  The leading rusher was Keshawn Reid with 9 carries and 55 yards with one touchdown followed by Curtis Waters with 9 carries with a total of 9 yards. The passing offense put up a total of 135 yards led by Woody Green who racked up 103 yards and one touchdown

Next week the Dukes will travel to Courtland where the Southampton Indians will be the host. Game time is set for 7:00 p.m.
