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.
