East on Thursday night, making several key blocks that allowed the Knights
to pull away from their conference rivals and earn a big win.

to 7 goals or less per game.

sixth week of the season, helping the Knights move to 16-3 on the season.
Sam Virella (Naperville Central)
At the Jenison Tournament in Michigan over the weekend,
Virella allowed only 15 goals in four games, helping the Redhawks achieve a
perfect 4-0 record across state lines.
With less than 3 goals allowed per game, Virella helped
make the Redhawks a tough team to score on in Michigan. In the title game of
the tournament, Virella saved 12 shots against Ann Arbor Pioneer and allowed
only 2 goals in Central's 11-2 victory. She recorded a total of 30 saves in
the four-game tourney, which included wins over Rockford, Hudsonville,
and East Kentwood.
Naperville Central improved to 18-0 on the season after
six weeks of play, and Virella's defensive presence has been a major factor
in the team's success.
