Greensville one step closer to Western Tidewater sweep

Windsor kept within striking distance of Greensville for most of two quarters on Friday night, but the Eagles’ rushing attack was too much to handle as the Dukes fell 46-14. The win marked the second win in as many weeks for the Eagles over the TriRivers District teams in The Tidewater News’ coverage area, who play Franklin this week.

“We did some things well,” Windsor head coach Chuck Parrish said. “The kids played hard. We just didn’t execute [when we had a chance].”

Windsor trailed 12-6 midway through the second quarter, and receivers Trevor Kiser and Will Dube did their best to keep the Dukes in the contest with 25- and 27-yard touchdown receptions in the second and third quarters, respectively. However, Greensville running back Naquan Jordan scored three times on runs of 15, 11 and eight yards to put the game out of reach.

Windsor (2-5 overall, 1-3 in the district) plays Southampton on Friday in front of the home crowd, where some could argue the team plays with more determination.

“I wouldn’t necessarily say we’re a better team at home,” Parrish said, noting that it’s nice to not have his kids hop on a bus for an hour or two before the game, “but we always have a nice home crowd. That helps. The kids are just going to be excited about playing again.”
