State Championship: Fenwick 9 Stevenson 6

 

LINCOLNSHIRE, IL - Fenwick jumped out to a 4-1 lead in the first quarter and held off a tough Stevenson team the rest of the way to earn a 9-6 win over the Patriots in the state championship game on Saturday night. Annie Collins scored four goals in her final high school game and Cara Borkovec tallied two scores in the opening period to lead the Friars to their third straight win over the weekend and their sixth state title since the IHSA sanctioned water polo as a sport in 2002.

 

Stevenson tried to pull off their third straight upset of the weekend, as they narrowed the gap to 5-3 when Cheyenne Montijo converted a penalty shot midway through the second period. But Collins was not willing to lose her final game, as she scored a key goal right before halftime to give Fenwick the momentum and a 6-3 lead at the break.

 

Collins wasted no time taking care of business in the second half, scoring less than two minutes into the third period to give Fenwick a four-goal cushion. Stevenson scored a goal late in the period to cut the lead to 7-4, but Haley Wickham's goal at the end of the third period put Fenwick ahead 8-4 with seven minutes remaining.

 

The Friars seemed determined to whittle the clock down, but Stevenson's Karen Lowry was just as determined not to lose the final game of her career, as she scored two straight goals to cut Fenwick's lead to 8-6 midway through the last quarter. That made Fenwick sweat a little bit, but Friars' goalie Mackenzie Bonk made two critical saves and freshman Alexa Ovalle scored with one minute left, sealing the title game win for Fenwick.

 

Collins scored 4 times and Borkovec added 2 goals for Fenwick. Ovalle, Wendt, and Wickham also tallied goals for the Friars in the win.

 

Lowry scored 3 goals, Montijo put in 2 goals on penalty shots, and Erin McCook tallied one score in the loss for the Patriots.
