Scouting Woodstock at Cary-Grove

Success - Article sent! close

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.
