C-G Turns Back Pats


Byline: Steve Nichols snichols@dailyherald.com

Slow first quarter. Menacing defense in the second. Olivia Jakubicek in the third and fourth.

It's not how Cary-Grove is starting games, but as the game progresses, the Trojans are proving why it's really how you finish.

Both teams ran all sorts of defenses at each other, but what did Cary-Grove change up in the second half to establish Jakubicek down low?
