About this Article

St. Charles East knew it was facing a team capable of incredible raw power this weekend. The Saints just didn't know it would be Saturday. A day after a stunning walk-off win over No. 1-ranked Barrington, St. Charles East simply ran into a Minooka buzzsaw. The Indians banged out a championship-game record 14 runs and 19 hits and slugged 3 homers. Rachel May's walk-off 3-run shot in the sixth inning capped off a 14-3 Minooka run-rule win in the Class 4A final at Eastside Centre in East Peoria.
