Wave drops MVL game at Butler

Greenville drops defensive battle to Aviators.

VANDALIA – Greenville dropped a 13-0 MVL varsity football game to the Butler Aviators with all the nights scoring coming in the first half of play.

“We got out blocked and out tackled plain and simple,” said Greenville coach, Bart Schmitz following the game. “We have to get back to doing those two things if we want to win these next two games.”

Butler used a three and a half minute 54-yard 7-play drive to close out first quarter play and take a 7-0 advantage to second quarter action.

The Aviators made it a 13-3 lead with 3:19 showing on the second quarter clock using up 4:22 on the game clock with a 15-yard touchdown pass. Butler’s PAT kick attempt missed the mark.

Greenville was 37/80 rushing and Butler 29-123 on the ground. Through the air the Wave went 9/18 for 76-yards; Butler 11/25 for 83-yards and a touchdown.

Greenville had 4-penalties for 20-yards; Vandalia 6-penalties for 60-yards.

Jacob Barr and Million Bryant paced the Green Wave with 7-tackles each, Ryan Crampton accounted for 6-tackles and AJ Shaffer added 5-tackles.
