There is a lot to keep track of this weekend, with 7 boys tournaments and 6 girls tournaments taking place on Saturday. By the way, standings from both Friday and Saturday will not be updated until late Saturday night, so the current listings will not reflect this weekend's action until all games have been reported. Here are some of the most recent updates:
SCHAUMBURG 18 ST CHARLES NORTH 7 (BOYS)
Chris Corbett tallied 5 goals and Jeff Davis and Mike Kehoe added 4 scores to lead Schaumburg to an 18-7 nonconference win over St Charles North on Saturday morning.
ST PATRICK TOURNAMENT (BOYS)
St Patrick has an early morning win over Libertyville, so they are one game away from clinching a slot in the title game of their own tournament. To do so, they will have to beat Waubonsie Valley at 1:00pm. Meanwhile, Loyola will have a shot to get to the championship game after they beat H-F last night, then H-F bounced back with an upset win over Brother Rice. For Loyola to get to the title game, they will need to beat Brother Rice in the 2:00pm game. UPDATE #2 - St Pats, Waubonsie, H-F, and Loyola all won their early games on Saturday morning, so it comes down to the matchups between St Pats-Waubonsie and Loyola-Brother Rice to determine the championship round seeding. UPDATE #3 - St Patrick won their own tournament after beating Loyola 11-2 in the championship game. Waubonsie Valley ended up in third place after beating H-F 8-4, Brother Rice topped Evanston 15-3 in the fifth place game, and Young defeated Libertyville in overtime 19-18 to claim seventh place.
NAPERVILLE TOURNAMENT (BOYS)

Mundelein will play against Central this morning at 9:40am, North plays Mundelein at 12:10pm, and Central and North square off in the final game at 2:40pm. Any one of those contests could end up being the eventual championship game. Meanwhile, GBS, GBN, and LWC are all in the second place bracket and will face each other on Saturday, while Lake Forest, Buffalo Grove, and Richards will battle it out in the third place bracket. UPDATE #2 - Naperville Central beat Mundelein 7-4 and Naperville North leads Mundelein 4-3 in the second quarter...if the Huskies hold on, the 2:40pm matchup between Central and North could end up being for the title.

UPDATE #3 - Naperville North beat Mundelein 7-4 in the first place bracket, so the rematch between Naperville North and Naperville Central will officially be for the tournament championship of the Best of the West Tourney.

UPDATE #2 - A tie in the game between Andrew and Hinsdale South has shaken things up a bit in the tournament, as the team that will face Sandburg for the tournament title may be determined by a tiebreaker.
