Naperville North 10 New Trier 9
Nyland and Curia spark Huskies' Comeback
Naperville North trailed New Trier 7-5 after halftime, but they began a
5-0 second half run when Adam Nyland walked the ball in from the
nine-meter mark and lofted a pass into Eric Curia on the right post; the
Huskies' senior responded with a nifty goal to cut the Trevians' lead to
one and sparked a rally that saw Naperville North build a 10-7 lead with
less than two minutes to go in their eventual 10-9 victory.
Fenwick 13 Homewood-Flossmoor 6
Farmers Combine To Put Away Vikings
Fenwick took an early 2-0 lead over H-F and emphasized their superiority
when Matt Farmer made a perimeter steal to start the Friars on a 3-on-2
breakaway. After swimming the length of the pool, he dished a pass to
brother Danny, who beat Jakobi McClellan to the left corner to give
Fenwick a 3-0 lead en route to a 13-6 victory on Friday.
Stevenson 9 Conant 6
O'Brien Denies Burke, Conant
Just after Stevenson had taken a 7-6 lead over the Cougars midway through
the third period, Conant's Jon Burke made a perimeter steal and had a
breakaway chance to tie the game. Stevenson goalie Rob O'Brien used his
left arm to block Burke's low shot, the Patriots got to the loose ball,
and Conant never scored again as the Patriots won 9-6.
St Ignatius 9 Brother Rice 6
Reyes Sparks Wolfpack Turnaround
With St Ignatius trailing Brother Rice 4-3 a few minutes into the third
quarter, Reyes outmaneuvered his defender and quickly pushed a loose ball
out to Billy Barth, who then assisted Shane Hughes on a goal from seven
meters out to tie the game at 4-4. Reyes would go on to total 3 goals and
an assist in the next few minutes as the Wolfpack turned a two-goal
deficit into a three-goal lead late in the game as they eventually beat
the Crusaders 9-6.
