GSL wins spirited sectional opener

The Glencoe-Silver Lake boys’ basketball team opened the postseason in fine form by defeating Norwood Young America 59-48 in the Section 2AA North Subsection semifinals on Friday, Feb. 27 at New Prague High School.
It was the eighth consecutive victory for the Panthers, who improved to 21-5 on the season entering this week.
In a spirited evening befitting the “win or go home” manner of playoff basketball, GSL stormed out to an 11-0 lead six minutes into the contest, before both sides played each other equally from there. 
What appeared early on to be a blowout turned into a gripping affair, with the fifth-seeded Raiders not willing to go quietly into the frigid night.
“We did not respond well to their pressure,” coach Robb DeCorsey said. “”We also missed a lot of easy shots.”
