FRANKLIN FURNACE — All things considered, coach Bobby Blanton will take the moral victory.

After a sluggish performance in their opening game loss to Portsmouth West, Green turned in a better performance against a strong South Webster team but lost to the Jeeps 61-443 in a non-league game on Tuesday.

“I was happy with our effort. We played hard,” said Green coach Bobby Blanton. “We got off to a slow start but we came back in the third quarter. We only had 10 turnovers so I was happy with that.”

Clay Applegate and Tyler Crace scored 12 points each to lead Green. Trent Marcum had 10 points and 10 rebounds and Robbie Applegate scored 9 points.

Seth Goddard had a game-high 20 points for the Jeeps (2-0).

Green fell behind 9-0 to start the game and trailed 17-7 at the end of the first quarter.

The Jeeps went ahead 29-15 at the half as Robbie Applegate and Crace both sat out in foul trouble.

But Applegate and Crace combined for 10 points in the third quarter as the Bobcats outscored the Jeeps 10-9 and cut the deficit to 38-25.

But South Webster was able to rebound and outscored the Bobcats 23-18 in the final quarter.
