As halftime speeches go, the one delivered Friday night by Center Grove coach Shawn Sanders must have been a good one.
While the Trojans were already up 25-15 over Lawrence Central at halftime, the outcome was still in question. Sanders made some adjustments, notably defensively, and the results were laser-effective.
Class 4A No. 9 Center Grove responded with a 21-1 advantage in the third quarter and cruised to a 58-22 Metropolitan Interscholastic Conference win against the visiting Bears.
