Crete too much for Vikings again

CRETE — For the second time this season, Class B, No. 1 Crete and Morgan Maly were too much for No. 2 Northwest.

Maly put up a game-high 28 points, while helping the Cardinals get past the Vikings 45-31 in the Doane Holiday Tournament Saturday.

Crete also did it on the defensive end as well in shutting out Northwest in the first quarter for a 16-0 lead.

NW coach Russ Moerer said Crete didn’t make things easy for the Vikings,

“They are very long and it changes the angles you have to take offensively,” he said. “We also didn’t execute very well offensively. We seem to have a mental block when we face Crete this year.”
