Pacers turn it around in second half to beat Racine Lutheran

RACINE — If there was a perfect time for Shoreland Lutheran to make a defensive statement for the 2016 season, it was in the second half of Friday’s Metro Classic Conference clash against Racine Lutheran at Horlick Field.

The Pacers trailed 21-14 at halftime, and had little luck up to that point keeping the high-powered Crusaders 21-14 out of the end zone.

That all changed in the final two quarters, as Shoreland kept its playoff hopes alive by shutting out the Crusaders on its way to an impressive 28-21 victory.
