Eagles collect pair of SWSC Blue victories
By double digits, Sandburg doubled its pleasure last week.
Coming off a rugged stretch of schedule that pitted his team against five straight quality opponents, Eagles coach Todd Allen was simply hoping for a bit of an easier time. He wasn’t expecting Sandburg to breeze past either Lincoln-Way East or Joliet Central, but based on earlier returns, Allen felt the Eagles should very definitely be strong contenders in both SouthWest Suburban Conference Blue contests.
They had, in fact, defeated the Griffins in a previous matchup. The outcome wasn’t as favorable versus the Steelmen, but that was mostly due to an inopportune scoring drought that plagued Sandburg and turned a five-point deficit into an eventual 17-point loss.
