At Rosary: St. Edward (10-4-2) advanced to the semifinals at the Rosary tournament as the winner of the pool which played its games at IMSA. The Green Wave tied West Aurora 1-1, defeated IMSA 2-0 and defeated Willows 2-1.
But in its semifinal with Plainfield South, St. Edward was unable to score while the Cougars’ Lexus Rose scored on a rebound from a Kailyn Hasik shot midway through the first half.
“It was a good day,” St. Edward coach Tim Brieger said. “We just ran out of gas. We were a little short-handed in the Plainfield South game. We had one girl who had to leave and then Corey (Lepoudre) has had a groin injury and then she got stepped on.”
With the deletions from the lineup, Brieger gave other players a chance to play.
“We had some younger girls step up,” he said. “It’s a war of attrition. (The Cougars) were able to get the one goal. We said that the semifinals always end in shootouts or with one goal. You don’t get a lot of goals because the girls are all tired. It’s whoever gets that break.”
Early in the match, Allison Kruk had a close-range shot go over the crossbar with the Green Wave’s best scoring chance.
“Our pool play was real strong,” Brieger said. “There were a lot of good battles early in the morning. It’s a long, hard day. I’m very proud of the girls and pleased with their efforts.”
