LWC vs Loyola in game 1 - intros are complete, anthem is next and then it's state tournament time!

LWC leads Loyola 7-5 halfway through Q2; Jackovich with 5 goals for the Knights, Swenson with 3 and Considine with 2 for Loyola.


LWC 8 Loyola 6 at halftime in the first girls quarterfinal game at stevenson hs


Considine's breakaway goal cuts the LWC lead to 9-8 with 2:08 remaining in Q3; LWC timeout


Foglton's save after Loyola drew an ejection keeps LWC ahead of Loyola 10-8 at the end of the third quarter


LWC holds on to a 12-10 lead with 4m to go...we've also seen a red card issued in the first game of the tournament


Loyola with a hectic scramble to score to make it 12-11 with 0:32 left and they call timeout


LWC hangs for a 12-11 win over Loyola. Jackovich scores 8 goals in the Knights' win


Way behind schedule already...Mundelein-barrington will start around 6:10pm instead of 5:45pm


Just underway in the second quarterfinal, with Karrie Kozokar putting Mundelein ahead of Barrington 1-0


Defensive battle between Mundelein and Barrington; two goals by Kozokar have the Mustangs ahead 2-1 after one quarter


Late in the first half, Mundelein leads Barrington 4-2. Kozokar with all 4 goals, while Gavars and Meckert have tallied for the Fillies


Mundelein holds a 7-3 lead over Barrington with under six minutes left in regulation


Mundelein leads Barrington 9-5 with 2:15 left in the fourth quarter


Karrie Kozokar scored 9 goals to lead Mundelein to an 11-5 win over Barrington


The NC-Ignatius game will start around 7:40pm. 40 minutes later than scheduled.


That means the epic showdown between Fenwick and mcauley will start close to 9pm


Ignatius and Central are seconds from getting underway!


Late in the first quarter, St Ignatius and Naperville Central are tied at 1-1; NC with a timeout after an ejection with 2:33 left in Q1


NC 2 SICP 2 after Q1


Into the third quarter with Ignatius leading Naperville Central 8-5


St Ignatius has pulled away from Naperville Central and leads 11-5 late in the third period


It's all but over as the subs are in for both teams with Ignatius beating NC 14-5


SICP 15 NC 6, FINAL SCORE. Fenwick and McAuley will begin play after 9:00pm


It really doesn't get any bigger than Fenwick-McAuley in a state tournament game. Who will survive to the semifinal round?


Fenwick takes an early 2-0 lead over McAuley on goals by Ovalle and Barron


Kopale and Kleist have tied the game at 2-2 between Fenwick and McAuley


McAuley leads Fenwick 3-2 after Bryar's early third period goal!


McAuley leads 5-3 late in the first half


Fenwick survives a late 6-on-4 situation but trails Mother McAuley 5-3 at halftime


Again, if I was principal, neither of these two teams would have to go to school tomorrow. No state qualifying team would.


Still 5-3 McAuley midway through the third quarter as the defenses have stepped up


Kleist draws a 5m and Bryar converts, McAuley leads Fenwick 6-3


Mother McAuley 7 Fenwick 3 with 7:00 left to play in the last semifinal of the day!


I wish I was at Stevenson watching this Fenwick-McAuley game...good thing @illpolo is there! - Rebecca Mathews (Iona & H-F)


Fenwick gets a quick goal but trails McAuley 7-4 with 4:30 remaining


Just over two minutes to play and McAuley leads Fenwick 7-5 as the Friars take a timeout


NOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The power just went out with McAuley leading Fenwick 7-6 after Barron's latest goal.


It's really dim on the pool deck so they have to wait to get back in the pool now...ugh


somebody took your midnight game seriously - Sean Scanlon (Marian Catholic)


If this game goes to overtime...


it's just like the Super Bowl - Mark Betti (Mundelein)


Still pretty dark, past 10pm, 1:41 left in the game with McAuley leading Fenwick 7-6 but the Friars on a 3-0 run


Lets just get a glow in the dark ball and let them play - Kevin Tunney (Sandburg)


Start pumping in the Skrillex! I'm about to order a pizza.


All kidding aside, this is really a shame.


LET THEM PLAY! LET THEM PLAY! C'mon crowd pull a Bad News Bears right now. #ishouldstartit


Here we go I guess...playing in the dim lighting


Correction...now a five-minute warmup for the teams


REJECTED BY BOTH COACHES! WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!


Barron's lob goes in! Tied at 7-7.


OH MY! Buglio blocks Arciniega's backhand


Arciniega with a steal at the other end and draws an ejection. Timeout McAuley!


KLEIST!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


McAuley leads Fenwick 8-7 with 0:27 left after Kleist scored from the right side! Beautiful pass from Bryar. Timeout Fenwick.


fenwick turnover and mcauley timeout!


0:21 left, McAuley ball leading by one...McAuley timeout!


MCAULEY WINS 8-7!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


McAuley overcoming Fenwick's rally and a power outage is one of the most epic things I've see in water polo. Mad props! Epic win.


Congrats to LWC, Mundelein, St Ignatius, and Mother McAuley for winning tonight to advance to the state semifinal round
