    Cullen still unbeaten; Cary-Grove 2nd in FVC Jan 26, 2013 12:00 AM
    It was clear going into Saturday's Fox Valley Conference finals that Crystal Lake Central's five-year reign as the league wrestling champion was over. The question was, would Cary-Grove's navy and white or McHenry's black and orange be the new colors of FVC wrestling royalty. McHenry's lead wasn't safe up only 10 points after Friday's prelims but sending 13 of 14 into the semifinals to Cary-Grove's 10 didn't seem to make the Warriors nervous. The Trojans closed in early with first place wins in 2 of the first 3 matches and watched three wrestlers earn titles, but McHenry grew stronger in the heavier classes and garnered 3 first-place winners, 3 second-place winners and 4 third-place medals to grab the overall championship over Cary-Grove, 261.50-210.

  • Solid defense leads Hampshire Jan 15, 2013 12:00 AM
    All season, Hampshire girls basketball coach Ed Haugens has talked about getting his team to play four good quarters. The Whip-Purs came pretty darn close Tuesday night while defeating Crystal Lake Central, 51-27. The only thing that kept Hampshire from getting maximum style points was a truckload of missed layups in the first half. Despite leading 22-11 at halftime, the Whip-Purs shot just 10-for-35 from the field, with most of the misses coming from inside 5 feet.

  • Crystal Lake Central wins Jacobs tournament Dec 29, 2012 12:00 AM
    Crystal Lake South coach Matt LePage said it best. "It was a bad situation," LePage said. "We didn't play well and Central played very well. We didn't match up with them very well. They were the better team. That is a reality." LePage's remarks came after District 155 rival Crystal Lake Central crushed the Gators 65-43 in the championship game of the Jacobs Boys Holiday Basketball Classic in Algonquin Saturday night.

It seemed like Huntley had the momentum to post a road victory, but the Red Raiders couldn't get any closer. Outscoring Huntley 12-5 to end the game, the host Tigers outlasted the visitors 54-46 in Fox Valley Conference crossover boys basketball action Friday night.

  • Crystal Lake Central tops Crystal Lake S. Dec 8, 2012 12:00 AM

It was the nightmarish second quarter where Central blitzed the stunned Gators 23-7 which cost South dearly. The final result was a Central 59-47 win over the Gators in Fox Valley Conference crossover action Saturday night. The game was part of the Hoops for Heroes day which saw girls and boys games between Central and South. Proceeds from the games were distributed to local military families.

  •  Cary-Grove defensive coordinator Don Sutherland directs his troops during the Trojans’ 7-0 Class 6A quarterfinal win over Crystal Lake Central Saturday.

    Flexible Cary-Grove defense comes up big Nov 10, 2012 12:00 AM
    Cary-Grove's explosive offense has rightfully commanded headlines this season, but the credit for the Trojans' 7-0 victory over Crystal Lake Central in Saturday's Class 6A quarterfinal lies squarely with the defense. A unit that opened the season with a ton of question marks punctuated one of the most important playoff victories in school history by turning the CL Central offense away four times in Cary-Grove territory, including twice in the game's final five minutes.

  •  Cary-Grove’s Kyle Matthiesen (51) and Trevor Ruhland celebrate the Trojans’ 7-0 win over Crystal Lake Central Saturday in the Class 6A state quarterfinals.

    Cary-Grove turns back Crystal Lake Central Nov 10, 2012 12:00 AM
    It was all there for the taking for No. 4 seed Crystal Lake Central. And not just once, or twice for the Tigers. But 3 times in the fourth quarter. With its best opportunity on Cary-Grove's third fumble of the quarter — a failed exchange that CLC recovered on the Trojan 29 with 1:20 remaining down 7-0 — seemingly spelling doom for the top-seeded, undefeated Trojans, whose offense was collectively frustrated. But credit Cary-Grove's defense, which stymied Central's spread attack and double-tight set all afternoon, limiting the Tigers' offense to 182 total yards, for making one more stop, this one with the game on the line. And that final stop came on the Tigers' final pass, when Kyle Lavand lofted a miracle pass toward the end zone on fourth-and-2 with 30 seconds remaining. Defensive back Matt Sutherland batted the pass to the ground, a play indictative of how the Trojans' defense stood to preserve a 7-0 shutout win in a Class 6A quarterfinal game that served all the justice it could at Al Borher Field in Cary Saturday afternoon.

  •  Cary-Grove’s Zach Marszal (41) puts a block on Rockford Auburn’s Corey Jefferson (9) to give Cary-Grove’s Kaene Connington some running room during the first round of the Class 6A playoffs. Cary-Grove hosts Crystal Lake Centrak Saturday at 1 p.m. in the quarterfinal round.

    Experienced Cary-Grove ready for Crystal Lake Central Nov 9, 2012 12:00 AM
    Competing in a state quarterfinal represents new ground for one team, a return to familiar ground for the other. No. 1 seed Cary-Grove (11-0) will make its 10th quarterfinal appearance and seventh in the last nine seasons when the Trojans host No. 4 Crystal Lake Central (9-2) in a Class 6A matchup on Saturday at 1 p.m. CL Central has never delved this deeply into postseason play. In 12 previous playoff appearances, the Tigers advanced to the second round on just three occasions (1978, 2009, 2010) only to be knocked out each time.

  • Painful exit for as Grant as Crystal Lake Central moves on Nov 2, 2012 12:00 AM
