1ST PLACE

Fenwick 12 Oak Park 11 (Shootout: Fenwick 5 Oak Park 4)

Dan Francisco made a save in the sixth round of a shootout to give Fenwick a 12-11 win over Oak Park after the two teams finished regulation tied at 7-7. Both Francisco and Oak Park goalie David Anderson made stops in the first attempt to score for both teams, but it was Francisco's save on Troy Williams' effort that gave the Friars their second straight win over the Huskies in Round 3 of the battle between the two teams.

 

In regulation, the teams started out evenly matched, ending the first period tied at 2-2. The Friars, however, went on a 3-0 run in the second period, getting goals from Connor Brown, DJ Gallo, and Will Rigali, to lead at halftime 5-2. Armando Lee and John Osborne traded goals early in the second half, but Fenwick still held a three-goal lead until late in the quarter. That's when Oak Park tightened the game up, as Anderson made a steal and assisted Troy Williams on a breakaway goal, then Dylan O'Connell scored from the left side with one second left in the period to cut the Fenwick lead to 6-5.

 

In the final quarter, the Huskies wasted no time getting things evened up, as Lee fought for position and scored from two-meters out to tie the game at 6-6. Dylan O'Connell then gave the Huskies their first lead since the opening quarter, as he made a steal on the perimeter and went the length of the pool to slide a shot under the arm of Francisco to give Oak Park a 7-6 advantage with 3:22 left to play. Fenwick came right back to tie the game, as Rigali drew a penalty and converted the ensuing shot with 3:07 remaining. Neither team could score in the closing minutes, so the game went to an immediate shootout.

 

Including the goals scored in the shootout, Osborne led the Friars with 3 scores and Brown, Farmer, Gallo, and Rigali all scored 2 goals in the victory. Lee led the Huskies with 4 scores and Dylan O'Connell added 3 goals in the narrow loss for the Huskies.

SATURDAY'S GAME PREVIEWS

BOYS

MATCH OF THE DAY

#2 Fenwick vs #3 Oak Park / #1 Brother Rice vs #4 Naperville Central

Fenwick and Oak Park are on track to meet for the third time this season in the title game of the Stevenson Tournament if they can win the rest of their games on Saturday. Meanwhile, both Brother Rice and Naperville Central lost on Friday night but could meet in the third place game if they can earn a few more wins on Saturday as well.

 

KEEP AN EYE ON:

Stevenson Tournament - If Friday night's games are any indication, then Saturday should provide some highly-competitive games in Lincolnshire with several potential state tournament teams in attendance. Last night, Stevenson upset Palatine 5-4 in the opener, Fenwick came-from-behind to stun Naperville Central 8-7, Oak Park earned a convincing 13-5 win over Brother Rice, and Mundelein eked out a 12-9 win over New Trier. There are six more preliminary round games before the championship round gets underway at 1:30pm.

 

Conant Tournament - Lincoln-Way North earned two wins and Buffalo Grove and Neuqua Valley stayed perfect in first-round games at the Cougars' tournament on Friday night. Who will stay perfect and meet in the title game tomorrow afternoon in Hoffman Estates?

 

#28 Lincoln-Way East at #6 Lyons - The Griffins come into this Saturday fixture with a bit of momentum after edging #22 Lincoln-Way Central on Thursday. Meanwhile, the Lions will look to bounce back against the visitors after falling to Waubonsie 9-7 on Thursday.


GIRLS

MATCH OF THE DAY

#9 Mundelein at #1 Lyons

The Mustangs head to LaGrange to battle the top-ranked Lions on Saturday afternoon; they'll need their best possible performance if they hope to surprise Allie Grimes, Katelyn Jacobs, and the rest of a well-balanced LT lineup.

 

KEEP AN EYE ON:

Independent Tournament - Argo, Riverside-Brookfield, Richards, and Shepard will play in a four-team tournament to see which team can emerge as the top team without a conference from this group on Saturday. Bremen's JV team will also participate in the event.
