Can’t get past ‘em

IOWA CITY– It was a wake-up call.
For the West High Trojans, Friday night’s battle against Cedar Rapids Jefferson was a reminder of how easily a game can slip away; and with the postseason looming, how quickly a season can end.
West was subdued early in the first period, scoring only six points in the quarter. The only consolation in the first stanza was that West tied the J-Hawks. Myzeah Batie-Gaddy put West on the scoreboard, but the Trojans soon found themselves running behind.
