Things to look for on Saturday:



- GBS and Evanston advanced to the championship round of the GBS Tournament; they await one more finalist, which looks like it could be Oak Park if they beat Libertyville on Saturday morning.

- Brother Rice and Sandburg went 2-0 on Friday and play at 10:30am for the chance to advance to the championship game of the Brother Rice Tournament. St Patrick and Naperville North were the other two winners on the evening,

  with both teams getting a leg up on St Rita and Hinsdale Central on the other side of the bracket.



- It was a good night of games for Illinois teams facing opposition from Michigan; Naperville Central beat Jenison (MI), while Stevenson, Mundelein, Fenwick, and McAuley combined to go 5-0 against three other Michigan teams

  (EGR, Huron, Pioneer, Rockford). Sandburg and Evanston get a shot at Jenison on Saturday, while the Stevenson Tournament consists of 11 more games against the Michigan teams.

- Naperville Central takes on Sandburg at 8:50am in a battle of Top 10 teams at the NC Tournament.

- Latin plays host to Top 25 teams Neuqua Valley, Prospect, and Young beginning at 8:00am in Chicago.

- Riverside-Brookfield and Richards face off in the Independent Conference Tournament

- The added game between St Ignatius and Lyons in LaGrange (11:00am) was a late addition to the schedule but could be a matchup of potential state qualifiers if things fall right for both teams in three weeks.

Special Game Recap (#1 vs #2)

Fenwick 17 Naperville Central 6

By Adam Brown


It was a battle of the top-ranked teams as #1 ranked Fenwick and #2 Naperville Central squared off on Tuesday night in Oak Park. The Friars were looking to continue their dominance over the state of Illinois after an undefeated trip to Florida, while the Redhawks were finally playing at full strength.

The Friars took control in the first period, taking a 3-0 lead with two goals by Chris Wendt and a goal Brian Barron; after three straight tallies from Brian Barron in the second quarter, the Friars took a 6-0 lead late in the second period. The Redhawks got on the board after Max Saltzman drew a 5-meter penalty and scored on the following shot to make the score 6-1. Fenwick continued to control the pace, however, with a strong set offense and a quick counterattack, ended the half with a 10-1 lead.

Central made noticeable adjustments at the half, as Ben Reasons scored twice and Ryan Stanley and Max Saltzman each recorded goals to cut the lead to 10-6 at the end of the third quarter. That was as close as the Redhawks would get, as foul trouble and a relentless counterattack by the Friars put the game away in the fourth quarter. The Friars used a remarkable 7-1 run in the final period to beat Naperville Central 17-6.

Chris Wendt scored 6 goals and Brian Barron added 4 scores in the win for Fenwick. Ben Reasons, Ryan Stanley, and Max Saltzman all scored 2 goals apiece for the Redhawks in the loss. Meanwhile, Tyler Kelley had 11 saves for the Redhawks and Chris Napleton had 4 saves for the Friars.
