Naperville Central 3 Fenwick 3


-----  The two teams are deadlocked at the break, the result of some tough defense and solid goalkeeping on both ends. The Redhawks built some momentum early in the second period, but the Friars' response was excellent and we have a lot to determine here in the second half.
-----  To those following along live, there is about two minutes left in the break...we are posting our updates as close to real-time as we possibly can.

0'45 Stanley draws a foul but shoots over the net.

Naperville Central 4 Fenwick 4


-----  It's all on the line now in the final seven minutes of this second semifinal game. Can Central do the unthinkable, or will Fenwick rise to the occasion?
