The Turning Point

Vol. I

 

The following key plays made the biggest difference for the winning teams in Thursday's quarterfinal round:

 

GIRLS

LWC 12 Loyola 11

Hustle Play Helps LWC Pull Away From Loyola

Early in the fourth quarter, the Knights led the Ramblers by two as the teams were consistently trading goals. Danijela Jackovich had a chance to put Central ahead by three, but her outside shot slammed against the crossbar and the ball got tipped to the right side of the goal. In a furious scramble with two defenders and Loyola goalkeeper Meredith O'Brien, Liz Klock gained possession and fed a wide-open Jackovich, who had crashed the goal and easily scored to give LWC an 11-8 lead that Loyola could not come back from.

 

Mundelein 11 Barrington 5

Second Chance Sparks Mundelein's Crucial Run

Right after Barrington had cut Mundelein's lead to one in the third quarter, the Mustangs were denied by Fillies' goalie Grace Buenrostro, but they got to the rebound first, allowing Michelle Barron a chance to score from five meters out to put Mundelein ahead 5-3. They would use that momentum to score four straight goals and close the book on Barrington's chance of pulling an upset.

 

St Ignatius 15 Naperville Central 6

Perimeter Defense Keys St Ignatius' Turnaround

Naperville Central and St Ignatius were always within one goal of each other throughout the majority of the first half. The Wolfpack had just taken a 5-4 lead in the final minute when Becky Insalaco and Karen Juarez teamed up to make a steal on the perimeter and Insalaco scored a breakaway goal to give the Wolfpack a two-goal lead at halftime that the Redhawks would never recover from.

 

Mother McAuley 8 Fenwick 7 (Part I)

Resilience Keeps Fenwick Close Before Halftime

Mother McAuley drew two straight ejections on the same possession in the final minute of the first half while leading 5-3, but the Friars shut them down quickly and stayed in close range to the Mighty Macs at halftime.

 

Mother McAuley 8 Fenwick 7 (Part II)

Power Outage Doesn't Slow Fenwick's Surge

With Fenwick in the midst of a 3-0 run to close the gap to 7-6 with 1:41 remaining in regulation, the power went out in the Stevenson pool causing a fifteen minute delay. Colleen Barron wasn't bothered, as her lob shot caught McAuley goaltender Sarah Abbott off guard and tied the game at 7-7 with just over one minute left to play.

 

Mother McAuley 8 Fenwick 7 (Part III)

Arciniega Never Gives Up

Vicky Arciniega had a chance to score a possible game-winner for the Mighty Macs in the final minute of regulation, but her backhand attempt from two meters was blocked by Lexi Buglio. Moments later, she hustled back to make a steal and quickly drew an ejection that led to the game's final goal.

 

Mother McAuley 8 Fenwick 7 (Part IV)

Bryar-Kleist Combo Provides Magic For McAuley

With the game on the line, Clare Bryar lofted a pass from the left wing to the right that Kristen Kleist caught, reared back, and fired into the roof of the cage with 0:27 seconds left, propelling the Mighty Macs into the semifinal round with an 8-7 victory over two-time defending champion

Fenwick.
