The Greyhounds (3-4, 1-3) have won three of their last four games since starting the season 0-3.

Garrett Sharpe's 10-yard touchdown pass in the second quarter to Braxton Curry and three Brody Southwell field goals provided the scoring output for FSCC as the defense held true and dominated the second half to shut out Ellsworth since the middle of the second quarter.

Sharpe completed just 3 of 10 passes for 57 yards and the score to Curry. Sharpe also led the Greyhounds in rushing with 57 yards while James Randle chipped in with 43 yards on nine carries.
