It’s a modest two-game winning streak, but a winning streak nontheless for the Greenfield School varsity girls basketball team.
The Lady Knights finished the 2017 portion of their schedule Tuesday night, owning a 24-6 halftime lead en route to a comfortable 42-16 victory over Wilson Preparatory Academy.
Kaelyn Wall led 1-A Greenfield (4-5) of the 1-A/2-A Coastal Plain Independents Conference with 20 points. Sumer Hassan added seven points as all seven Greenfield players saw playing time. Six scored.
“We stayed in our zone and worked on some things,” Greenfield head coach Bruce Wall said. “We didn’t pressure the ball.”
The Lady Knights are off until Thursday, Jan. 4, when they host DASH United.
