Weather didn't just wreck havoc on football games this week.

The Jacobs boys soccer team had to change the schedule of its tournament and wait through another lightning delay Saturday morning.

Games for the tournament, which saw teams play less than a half Friday before storms moved in, were shortened to 25-minute halves. Teams were playing 2Ĺ games Saturday.

The Golden Eagles went 1-2. They finished up their 3-2 loss to Crystal Lake Central, lost to Harvard on penalty kicks after the game finished 1-1 and beat Kaneland in PKs after a scoreless 50 minutes.

"We have to make sure you stay intense, you stay in the game all the time," Jacobs senior Tim Hubner said of the long day. "It's easy to get distracted, to say you're tired and give up. You had to stay strong for all three games."

Against Kaneland, the Golden Eagles had the best opportunity of the first half when a Knights defender fell down, allowing Konrad Wasilewski to go in free. Kaneland goalkeeper Jarred Karr made the save.

Karr finished with 6 saves. Jacobs goalkeeper Spencer Dixon also made 6 saves.

Each team made its first 5 attempts from the penalty spot. Austin Ryan scored for the Golden Eagles (1-2-1) on their sixth attempt. Kaneland's shooter went over the crossbar to end the game.

"I liked that in the dying moments they were fighting and talking," Jacobs coach Anthony Cappello said. "It was a pretty good effort out there. It's good character to watch them fight after playing so many minutes."

Hubner and Wasilewski scored in the loss to CL Central. Nick Voss scored against Harvard.

Kaneland also went 1-2, beating CL Central 1-0 and losing to Jacobs and Harvard 1-0.

Ignacio Toscano scored against CL Central.

Dundee-Crown wins tournament: Ben Stone and Paul Buch had goals and Jose Gonzalez made 9 saves in goal as the Chargers downed Carmel 2-0 to win the championship of the North Shore Shootout at Lake Forest. Francisco Nava had an assist for D-C (3-0).

Burlington Central 4, Yorkville 1: Alan Camarena scored a hat trick as the Rockets won to finish in third place at the DeKalb tournament. James Raney scored the other goal for Central (3-1). Raney, Matt O'Connor, Jacob Schutta and Sean Fitzgerald each had assists and Brett Rau made 5 saves in goal.

Streamwood 1, Geneva 0: Edwin Rueda scored off a free kick for the only goal of the game in this Upstate Eight River contest. Phil Lewy (2 saves) and Sergio Blanco (3 saves) shared the shutout in goal for the Sabres (2-0, 1-0).

St. Edward 3, Harvest Christian 2: Rafael DeSouza and Basilio Salazar had the goals for Harvest Christian at the St. Edward tournament. Cesar Valazquez had 2 assists and Noah Fox made 10 saves in goal for the Lions (1-2).

Barrington 2, Cary-Grove 1: Kevin Wilde scored for the Trojans (0-2) and Ethan Escha had 3 saves in goal in this nonconference loss.
