Oswego East (2-5, 0-2) has been plagued by sluggish starts this year, but the Wolves came out strong, taking a 10-5 lead on Christine Corpuz’s three-pointer midway through the first quarter.
But Corpuz wouldn't score again.
“We talked about having to work on our first and third quarters and tonight our first quarter was great,” Carretto said. “But we just couldn’t get any offensive flow going.”
Minooka (5-1, 2-0) led 15-13 after one quarter and only yielded 23 points the rest of the way.
“To hold a good team to 36 points in a varsity match is a sign of a good defense,” Indians coach Jeff Easthon said. “They were making a bunch of runners and floaters and stuff in the first half, shots that I like them taking but they were going in. But in the second half they stopped going in.”
