2 & 5 Start

Streaks started out 2-5 on the season. We lost games to Illini West, East Peoria, Springfield, Alleman, and Moline. On December 5 we lost to Moline 40-20. We only scored 7 points in the entire first half. We were totally dominated by Moline. That game left us at 2-5 overall and 0-2 in the WB6.

At that point there was no finger pointing by the players. There was no "poor, poor me", feeling sorry for themselves. The players continued to do what they had done all season- they practiced hard, they listened, and they got better and better.

The result has been an 8 gaming winning streak and a record of 10-5 now. The "streak" has included big wins at Dunlap, over Maine South at Galesburg, over Mattoon at Mattoon, and then wins over excellent Olney and Salem teams. We still have a long ways to go, but we are getting better.

The championship at Mattoon was so much more satisfying for all of us because we know the battles we have fought to get to this point!

We are headed in a VERY challenging part of our schedule with Rocky, Sterling, UT, Geneseo, IVC then Alleman, Morton, U-High, QND among others. So our upcoming schedule suggests there will be bumps in the road, but the key is to just keep working and improving.
