Players To Watch
Keep an eye out
for the following 10 players over the course of the season, as their
performances have been eye-catching:
Chen was instrumental in Schaumburg's perfect weekend at the
Hoffman Tournament last weekend and has helped the Saxons start the season with
an 8-0 record. He also scored 4 goals to help
lift Schaumburg to a 19-7 victory over Prospect.
The Friars needed to replace five starters from last year's
championship team, and Gallo has stepped in to play an important role for
Fenwick, a team that has started off the season with a 7-1 mark and remains
undefeated in the Catholic League. Gallo has scored a handful of goals and
logged some valuable minutes for the defending state champions.
As the top-ranked Huskies flourish on the offensive
end, it would be a mistake to overlook the contributions of goalie David
Anderson. His ability to start the counterattack and pick out open teammates led
to several goals over the weekend at the Fenwick Tourney, while he made several
key stops to give the Huskies a boost defensively.
Gryniv is one of the main weapons on a rebuilt GBS team that
knocked off Glenbrook North 14-7 during the week.
Gryniv scored 6 times to lead the Titans to the win and could help get GBS back
into the Top 25 by the end of the month.
The T-Bolts remain undefeated (5-0-1) after the first two
weeks of play, as a draw with Lockport was the only game preventing them from
earning six straight wins. Marino played a big part in their success over the
weekend at the Hinsdale Central Tournament, leading the team in scoring with 16
Hunt scored 13 goals in wins over Neuqua Valley and STC North
this past week and has been a vital component to the Warriors attack in the
early part of the season.
Martello led the Spartans in scoring in this week's wins over
Hinsdale South and Resurrection and has been a big reason that Marian has
started the season off with a 6-4 record.
The dynamic transfer student from California has scored 33
goals in her first seven games for the Scouts, including a 17-goal performance
over the weekend that helped Lake Forest claim third-place at the STC North
The Saxons goalkeeper has helped keep head coach Beth
Donatucci's squad in position to win close games, like she did this week when
she made 13 saves and held Conant to 3 goals in an 11-3 victory and when she
helped the Saxons surprise Barrington by a score of 10-7.
Moderhock scored 6 goals in an 8-6 overtime win over
Deerfield and has helped the Titans earn five early-season wins after two weeks
