On eve of playoffs, Knights bag three more wins
With a second straight Suburban Christian Conference Gold title already in hand, Chicago Christian had nothing to prove against three nonleague foes last week.
And on Monday, that’s exactly the way it appeared.
Knights coach Eric Brauer liked that his club managed to knock off Christian Liberty Academy 5-0, but that’s as far as the positive vibes went. While Chicago Christian was never in danger of suffering a defeat, it also lacked the game-day energy Brauer has come to expect.
“Our intensity and focus was nowhere near what it needed to be,” he said. “I think our kids weren’t looking at it as very important. It was not the level of competition we’d been playing the previous four weeks in conference, and we played down to our competition.”
