TRUMBULL — Chicken or the Egg? Which comes first?
The question posed by Trumbull High and Staples of Westport was similar in nature when the FCIAC contenders met in Trumbull on Thursday night.
Is it important when your offense is lacking to retain your defensive principles to stay in the game?
Or are those plans of action on defense the reason a team holds its opponent far below its scoring average?
“We had to grind it out on defense,” Trumbull coach Steve Tobitsch said after his Eagles turned back the Wreckers, 36-25. “We had to tighten up our rotation to get those defensive stops.”
