GAME PREVIEWS (Saturday, May 23)

 

 

 

SEMIFINAL #1

11:30am - Fenwick vs Stevenson

The Friars survived a scare from an energetic Barrington team to advance to the semifinal round while the Patriots controlled their quarterfinal matchup with Lincoln-Way Central from start-to-finish. Do the hosts have something up their sleeves to help them get past a team that beat them three times during the regular season? Or will the Friars stay steady in their mission to get back to the state championship game after a 32-1 season?

 

 

SEMIFINAL #2

12:45pm - St Ignatius vs Lyons

The Lions and Wolfpack meet for the third time in 2015 with a spot in the state championship game on the line on Saturday afternoon. St Ignatius got offensive to beat New Trier 20-9 on Friday, while Lyons put forth an unbelievable effort to get past Naperville Central 13-11 in the late game on Friday night. Which team will get one step closer to a potential state title with a win on Saturday in Lincolnshire?

SEMIFINAL #1

9:00am - Stevenson vs Fenwick

The Patriots continued their run at perfection by beating St Ignatius 9-7 on Thursday. More importantly, they moved just two games away from claiming their first-ever IHSA state title. In order to get to the final game, they will have to get past the defending champions, as Fenwick eluded Naperville Central 11-7 on Thursday to move on to the semifinal round.

 

 

SEMIFINAL #2

10:15am - New Trier vs Lyons

The Trevians pulled away from Lincoln-Way Central in the first half of their quarterfinal round game to earn a 14-3 victory as they now set their sights on reaching the state title game for the first time in school history. If they hope to get there, they'll have to outduel Lyons, who showed they could persevere in a pressure-filled contest after outlasting Conant 16-13 in overtime on Thursday evening.
