Eagles easily soar past Griffins
To Lincoln-Way East, Sandburg was a beast Friday night.
Not right away — first, the Eagles had to play through an uneven opening period. While it assumed a 16-9 lead over the Griffins during the quarter, Sandburg’s performance was also pockmarked by eight turnovers, several of which were unforced.
The Eagles’ first three possessions of the evening, for instance, ended on a pair of travels and because of a bad pass. The session was truly one of feast or famine for the hosts.
“Our execution was very good when we didn’t turn the ball over,” Sandburg coach Todd Allen said. “But Lincoln-Way East wasn’t pressing and we had eight turnovers in 16 possessions. I was very upset with my team when that quarter ended.”
