MONROE - Defense wins championships. Sometimes, a little luck and certain matchups help. In a 49-43 win Tuesday over Mount Horeb, the Cheesemakers played solid defense, forcing Mount Horeb into 14 turnovers - two from defensive 5-second calls and an over-and-back in the first half. Monroe also picked up eight steals in the WIAA Division 2 regional opener.However, when it came to guarding against the shot, Monroe could only watch and hope for a gust of wind.
