Cary-Grove came back from a two-goal first-quarter deficit on Wednesday, scoring nine times in the second period and going on to beat Palatine, 13-5, in a nonconference game at Palatine which was called early because of weather.
The Trojans (9-3) trailed Palatine, 4-2, after one quarter but rallied to take an 11-4 lead by halftime, and only allowed one goal in the third period, which ended up being the last as weather forced the game to be shortened.
Four players had four points apiece to lead the Trojans’ offense. Brian Rathje netted a team-high three goals and added an assist, while Zach Perrone, Ty Forney and Gavin Hughes each had two goals and two assists.
Jake Baird added two goals and an assist, while Braden Baird had a goal and an assist, and Steven Soli scored once as well.
Blake Nolan made 17 saves in goal for the Trojans, and Cole Eggebraten won 11 of 20 faceoffs.
