After spending most of the first half in a hole, the Montini Broncos took the upper hand from the St Charles Saints and grab a two goal lead with 7:12 to play. St Charles edged back and tied the game 10-10 with 2:20 left. The Broncos were unable to convert after eating the clock down to 0:27 and St Charles recovered the ball with 0:08.6 left so the game went to overtime.
These two teams previously met earlier in the month and Lyons prevailed 10-7 in a close game. Monday night`s contest was much different as the Lions worked their cutting offense to near perfection, feeding from all sides with success and converting those feeds into goals, taking a 5-0 lead into the first half before the Patriots scored at 15:19. In that run, the Lions scored a goal a minute on each possession from 20:52 to 17:49, using an efficient offense that keep the ball out of the hands of the Patriots.
Four of our former players will be competing this weekend in Foxboro for the Division 1 National Championship. Yasmain Hamood (Hinsdale Central) plays for Penn State and has seen action in five games this season with 1 assist and 3 caused turnovers. Penn State squeaked by Princeton, on which Nonnie Anderson (Glenbrook South) plays and will play No. 1 Maryland Friday.
Both teams knew that this would be a tough rematch. Naperville North beat York earlier in the year 13-9, but the Dukes turned the table with their own four goal win, defeating the Huskies 14-10. Naperville North came out strong and capitalized on some sloppy play by York to go up 2-0. After a time out and regroup, the Dukes scored 9 of the next 10 and flipped the momentum, taking a 9-3 lead going into the 2nd half. York's Issy Torres came up big with 17 saves on the night in the cage to lead the defense. Seniors Zoe Lawless and Sam Wilson both had 4 goals and 1 assist to help lead the Dukes to their 3rd Sectional Championship in a row.
