The Goalies: H-F (Sophie Schloen) / Fenwick (Mackenzie Bonk)

 

Key Factors: Deja vu. These two teams met in the girls' tournament opener in 2010, with H-F building a 7-2 lead by the end of the third quarter en route to a surprising 9-6 win. The Vikings' return nearly everyone from last year's game, so confidence and experience should not be a problem. On the other hand, Fenwick earned a convincing 9-4 win over H-F to close out their own tournament at the end of Week 5, plus they are a much different team than last year with a lineup infused with several productive freshmen. This one's probably a toss-up, is likely close at halftime, and could come down to whoever makes the best adjustments heading into the second half.
