  • Grayslake Central rolls past Woodstock Jan 15, 2011 1:00 AM
    All season long, Grayslake Central senior Cam Neely has shown up in his King Kong costume to cheer on the boys basketball team. And for the fifth time in the past six games, the Rams showed that they weren’t monkeying around, as they blasted visiting Woodstock 73-40 in a Fox Valley Conference Fox Division game Friday night. Grayslake Central (7-8, 3-1) held Woodstock (6-10, 4-2) to only 12 shots in the first half in building a 38-14 lead. “The kids played real well,” Grayslake Central coach Brian Moe said. “We executed well in getting the ball inside and kicking the ball back outside, and that’s something we have been working on in practice.” Tim Abbott and Kyle Shepard led the Rams with 13 points each. “Tim had a great game for us,” Moe said. “The past two games he has really played well. It’s nice to have that kind of scoring depth.” Jordan Taylor added 10 points, while Sean Kirby and Casey Boyle each chipped in eight. After the Rams built a 56-32 third-quarter lead, Moe decided to put his bench in the game for the entire fourth quarter. Midway through the quarter, the home crowd erupted when reserve junior Ian Jackson scored his first basket as a varsity player. Later in the quarter, Tyler Smith came in and scored his basket for the varsity. Jordan Turner led Woodstock with 15 points, while Mike Sutter finished with 11 points. “Our main focus was to stop their two main scorers,” Abbott said. “Once we started to stop them, it was hard for the rest of their players to score any points.’’ Jyron Aparri scored 8 points for the Blue Streaks. Woodstock started the second quarter by missing its first 7 shots. The Blue Streaks went 0 of 17 from the 3-point arc. “I think if we had come out and shot the ball a little bit better, we would have been able to hang in,” Woodstock coach Alex Baker said. “That would have changed a lot of things.”

  • Ross, Larkin topple Woodstock Nov 24, 2010 11:08 PM
    Sure, Cam Ross would enjoy starting for the Larkin boys basketball team. But the Royals’ senior guard is savoring his role off the bench. Scoring 18 points with a pair of 3-pointers, Ross helped lead Larkin to a 53-44 win over Woodstock in second round action of The Hoops for Healing Boys Basketball Tournament held at Woodstock High School Wednesday night. “Cam is a starter,” said Larkin coach Deryn Carter. “He will be in the game at the end to finish. He feels comfortable in the role and he was outstanding tonight. Cam hit some big shots and made some clutch free throws. Cam brought a lot to the table tonight.” Ross made 8-of-9 free throws in the fourth quarter to secure the Royals’ (2-0) win. “Coach knows what he is doing and we are off to a 2-0 start,” said Ross. “I just want to help us win and I wanted to be at the line at the end with the game on the line.” Trailing the host Blue Streaks 34-30 with 6:45 remaining, Ross and the Royals went to work and outscored the hosts 23-10 the rest of the way. Down by 4, Larkin seized control of the game with 9 unanswered points. The Royals received contributions from Ross, who scored 5 points with a 3-pointer, and Ian Fluhler, who buried a 3 as Larkin grabbed a 39-34 advantage with 3:56 left in the game. Woodstock pulled to within 2 points of the Royals at 42-40 on a putback by Mike Sutter with 2:44 left in the game but the Blue Streaks couldn’t get any closer. The Royals scored their final 11 points from the free-throw line. Ross was 6-of-7 from the line, while Vincent Sarangaya made 3-of-4 as the Royals salted the game away. Backing Ross for the Royals was Fluhler with 10 points. Sutter scored 15 points with 11 rebounds for the Streaks before fouling out with 2:19 left in the game, while Jordan Turner added 12. The Royals committed 23 turnovers, 22 in the first 3 quarters. “We played one good quarter and were able to sneak out of here with a win,” said Carter. “Give Woodstock credit, they played a tough zone, but we weren’t ready to attack the zone. We didn’t match their energy for 3 quarters. I like the way we played in the fourth quarter.”

  • Scouting Woodstock at Cary-Grove Mar 1, 2011 5:24 PM
    Woodstock (1-1) at Cary-Grove (0-2) When: 2 p.m. Saturday at Al Bohrer Field Last year: Cary-Grove 60, Woodstock 6 Last week: Lake Zurich 10, Cary-Grove 3; Woodstock 24, Grayslake North 21 Outlook: Cary-Grove aims for its first victory of the season on Homecoming day in Cary. The Trojans have won the last eight meetings between these old rivals since 2004, including a 2007 playoff victory. The Trojans played toe-to-toe with Lake Zurich last week until the Bears broke a big run with under a minute to play to win the game. "I was encouraged by our attitude and effort for sure, those were the biggest things," C-G coach Bruce Kay said. "Still, on offense we missed too many assignments, which we have to correct in order to be a good team. On defense, we're reading our keys correctly maybe 25 percent of the time. Overall, we need to improve our discipline and focus. If we improve in those areas, we have a chance to become a good team." Kay also said two-way linemen Rich Kersten (6-3, 235) and Matt Gerrebiza (6-4, 245) will have their respective workloads eased a bit by other developing players ready to step into the lineup. "If we're going to be a good team, we have to have more two-platoon," Kay said. Woodstock running back Drew Walkington led the Blue Streaks to victory last week against Grayslake North, gaining 172 of the Blue Streaks' 282 rushing yards. Kickoff has been pushed back to 2 p.m. due to the ACT test.
