Late Season Craziness
There were a handful of surprise results during Week 8.
On Monday, Hinsdale Central beat Oak Park 13-11 to clinch second place in
the WSC. LWE earned just their fifth win of the season when they beat
Neuqua Valley on Wednesday. Bradley knocked Andrew out of contention for
the SWSC Red title on Thursday. OPRF responded to their early-week loss by
beating Naperville Central on Friday night. And for the biggest surprise of all, see below:
Lyons Ends Fenwick's 82-Game Winning Streak

makes for a surprise. The two teams will likely meet again in the
sectional finals if all goes according to plan. Don't miss that game!
Rockford Avenges Loss to Fenwick
Fenwick beat Michigan's top team 8-3 last weekend. So
the Friars' 9-8 loss to the hosts in the Rockford Tourney title game came as a slight surprise on
