Biggest Impact Plays

Shatinsky's backhand goal in the final minute helped the Wildcats edge Waubonsie Valley 9-8 on Saturday.

 

Zach Zdanavicius (Bremen)

The Bremen sophomore scored with four seconds left to give the Silver Snakes a 13-12 victory over LWC.

Top Goalie Performances

BOYS

Robbie O'Brien (Stevenson)

O'Brien blocked a Fremd breakaway chance at the end of regulation in Stevenson's eventual overtime win over the Vikings on Saturday. He totaled 39 saves in three wins as the Patriots won their own event.

 

GIRLS

Jessica Fox (Naperville Central)

Fox recorded two shutouts in her first week as the starting goaltender for the Redhawks, who started the season with a perfect 5-0 record.

The Phoenix goaltender allowed six goals in three games and made 29 saves as Lincoln-Way North won the Hinsdale Central Tournament on Saturday afternoon.

 

Biggest Surprises

BOYS

Palatine

The Pirates' rebuilding process is complete as they looked impressive over the weekend in finishing tied for second place with last year's state tournament runner-up, Loyola.

 

GIRLS

Barrington

The Fillies edged Stevenson by one goal in the first game of the Patriots' own tournament on Saturday morning en route to winning the event with a 3-0 record.

 

News and Notes

Timid Opening Week

Just over half of the 170 water polo teams have gotten their first game under their respective belts; look for a handful of teams to make their 2013 season debut during Week 2.

 

Snow Day

Excess snow forced the cancellation of most area schools and left all but one of the 20 games on Tuesday's schedule either postponed or cancelled. It also forced most teams to miss a day of practice.

 

Super Ballers

BOYS

Jordan Palmer (New Trier)

Nathan Pimentel (Oak Park)

 

GIRLS

Clare Bryar (Mother McAuley)

Katie Appell (Oak Park)
