WEEKLY RECAPS

 

 

THE ILLPOLO REPORT

Volume I

 

The following is a summary of what took place during the first week of the season. This is not a complete list and we can only include a few people in this summary, but the purpose is to recognize a few of the best performances from each week.

 

Players To Watch

BOYS

Austin Ihde (Wheeling)

Wally Kleinfeldt (Palatine)

 

GIRLS

Jessica Davis (Conant)

Sam Gavars (Barrington)

For a complete description, see Players to Watch: Volume I

 

Biggest Impact Plays

BOYS

Mitchell Sokolsky (Stevenson)

Sokolsky delivered the game-winning goal with :17 seconds remaining to lift Stevenson past Fremd 5-4 in the eventual title game of the Patriots' tournament on Saturday night.

 

GIRLS

Emily Asai (Whitney Young)

Asai recorded the game-winning goal in overtime as Whitney Young edged Hoffman 6-5 at the Stevenson Tournament.

 

Jess Marone (Neuqua Valley)

Marone helped preserve a draw with Metea Valley by denying a breakaway goal with a save in the closing seconds of a 7-7 game.

 

Top Goalie Performances

BOYS

Robbie O'Brien (Stevenson)

O'Brien allowed just 8 goals at the three-game Stevenson Tournament, including a 20-save shutout game in a 15-0 win over Wheeling and a save in the closing seconds of a 5-4 win over Fremd. He also stopped 15 shots in a 12-8 victory over Evanston earlier in the week.

 

GIRLS

Julia Campbell (Naperville Central)

The Redhawks' goaltender allowed just 5 goals in four games over the weekend to lead the team to the Naperville Tourney title. Campbell recorded a shutout in NC's 14-0 win over WV and allowed just one goal earlier in the week in 16-1 win over Marian.

 

Julie Conrath (Fremd)

Conrath recorded two shutouts at the Loyola Tournament in wins over the hosts and Hersey, helping the Vikings earn the event's title while scoring 2 goals of her own in the process. She totaled over 50 saves as Fremd went 5-0 in the opening week, which also included wins over Hersey, R-B, and Saint Viator.

 

Biggest Surprises

BOYS

Hoffman Beats Mundelein

The Hawks started the season with a bang, earning one of their biggest wins in recent history, a 9-8 triumph over the Mustangs.

 

Wheeling Defeats Schaumburg

A solid offensive performance from Austin Ihde helped the Wildcats hold off 2011-state qualifier Schaumburg 10-9.

 

GIRLS

Bremen Stuns H-F

The Red Jaguars had never beaten the Vikings, so their win over then #4 H-F caused quite an early season stir. Expect to hear more of this from Bremen this season.

 

Metea Valley Takes Second At Neuqua Tournament

The Mustangs put forth their best-ever performance at NV with a draw against the hosts and wins over both Naperville North and Waubonsie Valley.

 

News and Notes

Reporting

Remember, if it hasn't been listed...it probably hasn't been reported. Feel free to take the initiative to send in info during the season to ensure players are getting recognition for their hard work and accomplishments.

 

Expected Delays

If I can predict accurately, there will be delays in reporting on both Thursday and Friday night due to my wife's giving birth to our first child. Continue to send in scores and stats like normal and I'll do my best to ensure that any delays are brief (no days off for illpolo.com in over nine years!).

 

Super Ballers

BOYS

Eric Curia (Naperville North)
Brendan Hulseman (Loyola)

Charlie Dowdle (Loyola)
