Monroe's Michael Barrett (23) goes up for a lay up in the second half od the Cheesemaker's 44-35 loss to Freeport.
MONROE - The Cheesemakers were looking to avenge a tough loss from a year ago in the second annual Snack Bowl with Freeport. For 24 minutes, things were going just fine. Then the Pretzels went on an 18-4 run in the fourth quarter, eating away a one-time late 7-point Monroe lead to win 44-35."We're a little disappointed obviously," Monroe head coach Pat Murphy said. "We work so hard to get ourselves a good lead and then can't make enough plays to keep it."
