The first meeting between the Central Crossing and Grove City high school boys basketball teams did not feature the intra-district intensity other communities have experienced in recent years.
Perhaps it was because Grove City entered the game with just one loss and Central Crossing was winless. Perhaps it was because the outcome was decided early as the Greyhounds went on an 18-2 first-quarter run. Perhaps it was because the crowds' thoughts were more on the start of winter break than the berth of a potential rivalry.
In what seemed more like a run-of-the-mill regular-season game, Grove City beat Central Crossing 92-52 last Saturday.
