    I'm kind of surprised my prediction on the girls basketball Cobbler-Raider game was so accurate.  I bet Cobblers to win by 5 points.  Well, as most of you know by now, the Cobblers won by 6 points, 61-55.  It was a good game and both teams played tough.  The Central Cobblers just had a couple more gals step up and contribute, namely Kruse for Central.  She did an excellent job getting herself open underneath and catching the Raiders off guard a bit.  Central's defense was a lot stronger than Stevens', holding down Klapprodt nicely.  Like I have said, Stevens has other girls that can shoot, they just don't try enough.  It's my feeling they rely too much on the offense of just a couple of the girls and maybe need to get more comfortable trying more.  Once again, that's just one guy's point of view.  You don't have to agree with me.

    The Stevens boys, however, looked very strong against the Central Cobblers in their showdown.  Central was without Aquallo, and Stevens took advantage of that.  They played well both offensively and defensively, and that doesn't always happen for them.  If the Raiders can keep this momentum they might peak at the right time.  Just as a side note, the discipline, or lack thereof, on the Cobblers side of things was hard to ignore.   The loose behavior by a couple of the players was, quite frankly, inappropriate for a high school team, or any team for that matter.  It also provokes bad behavior by the crowd, which is disturbing.  To be fair, there was bad crowd control by both schools, and maybe it happens more in the rivalry games.  Nonetheless, it was behavior I wouldn't be proud of.
