Grayslake North's boys lacrosse team advanced to the state semifinals in the Class B Lacrosse Cup series with a 14-5 win over Naperville Central on Tuesday.

The Knights were led by University of Alabama-bound Matt Schlagetter with 5 goals and 3 assists.

" 'Schlaggie,' as he is called by his teammates, was all over the field," Grayslake North coach Brad Fish said of the senior, who also picked up 9 groundballs.

AJ Fish finished with 3 goals and 3 assists, while Brendan Walker added 3 goals and an assist. Rounding out the scoring for the Knights were Eric Palade, David Collins and Jack Mattea with a 1 goal apiece.

Grayslake North's defensive effort was led by Bryce Hermsen, Josh Kortenkamp and goalie Eric York with 8 saves. Nick Stanfel, the Knights' senior faceoff specialist, played well too.

"He has been a bright spot, trading in his baseball glove for a lacrosse stick," Brad Fish said. "He controlled 15-of-22 faceoffs and kept the Knights in possession of the ball when it mattered most."

Grayslake North will host Sandburg at 6:30 p.m. Thursday.

York 3, Lake Zurich 2: The Bears' season ended, despite goals from David Finney and Justin Dwiel. Dwiel and Ross Williams had assists, while goalie Matt Erickson made 10 saves.
