THE SKINNY

Grayslake Central tuned up for Friday’s regional final showdown with host North Chicago by rolling past Northside.

THE TURNING POINT

The Rams (19-10) were never in any trouble, leading 18-10, 30-20 and 40-24 at the breaks. The Rams weren’t exactly hitting on all cylinders, however, and ten second-quarter turnovers kept the game competitive in the half. Morgan Dahlstrom had eight third-quarter points to put the game out of reach for the Mustangs (12-16).

THE STAR

Senior center Dahlstrom was unstoppable, scoring 25 points and grabbing 12 rebounds. She was a freshman on the varsity the last time the Rams won a regional title.

BY THE NUMBERS

Grayslake shot 26-of-55 from the field, 4-of-7 from the foul line. Maddy Arnold (10 points, 12 rebounds), Lauren Spalding (six points, five boards, three assists) and Juliana Frusolone (six points off bench) also had nice games. Junior Sarah Parks had 22 points, six rebounds and three steals for Northside. Freshman Isabelle Banez added 11 points. The Mustangs shot 15-of-55 from the field. Grayslake had a 39-18 rebounding edge, but committed 22 turnovers to Northside’s 15.

QUOTABLE

“We have the potential. We’ve been saying that all year. We need to show a little more heart. We can show it when we want to, and we are going to have to show it on Friday [against North Chicago].” — Dahlstrom
