The Windsor Greyhounds opened the football season at a jamboree hosted by Adrian. Windsor participated in a 24-play scrimmage against the host team, Rich Hill and Sherwood. Twenty-five Greyhounds suited up for the preseason competition.

Windsor opened up with Adrian and the Blackhawks showed why they are contenders for the WEMO conference crown. Windsor’s varsity came up short on offense but the J-V crew put up an 18 yard completion from Cole Paxton to Jakob Erdmann. Adrian opened with a 34 yard counter but then the Greyhounds played a little better defense.

Rich Hill was the second opponent and the offense played better. Junior Luke Roberts had two long carries in the drive to put the ball on the three yard line. Both J-V teams took the field and Tristan Terry ran in a wedge for a touchdown. Chase Wetterow ran a sweep for 34 yards and on the last play of the series Paxton found Jonathon Schuler open for a touchdown pass.

Windsor’s defense also played well against the Tigers as Phillip Kroh had back-to-back minus yardage stops to open the series. Rich Hill only managed 20 yards of offense versus the Greyhounds.

Windsor ended the night against Sherwood. The offense continued to improve highlighted by long runs by Roberts. The Greyhounds scored on a play action pass from Trenton Johnson to Wetterow. Windsor’s defense gave up one score to the Marksmen but played well against the larger team.

Windsor opens its regular season this Friday with a trip to Sweet Springs. The Battle of the Greyhounds trophy will go to the winner of the game which starts at 7:00.
