TAKE 2: Don’t put much stock in openers
Daily Chronicle sports editor Ross Jacobson and sports reporter Steve Nitz cover the area’s sports scene. Occasionally, they give their viewpoints on those local sports. In this installment of their Take 2 column, Nitz and Jacobson review Week 1 of the high school football season and discuss which team most needs a win this weekend.
Jacobson: Steve, Week 1 of the high school football season certainly was a great way to start the season. Of the five local games, four were decided by nine points or less. Sycamore and Kaneland earned season-opening wins in the fourth quarter while Genoa-Kingston and DeKalb each lost tough contests at home.
Everyone tends to overreact after just one game, but there still are some things to learn from what we saw on the opening weekend. How much stock do you put into these first games? Are Kaneland’s struggles a sign of things to come or will it be a good wake-up call for the Knights?
