About this Article

Ricochets and crossbars can be your best friend, but also your enemy. Wednesday it was Aurora Central Catholic's partner-in-crime. The Chargers scored the first 2 of their 5-straight goals on plays such as a ricochet that Enrique Anaya booted 12 minutes into the match just in front of the net, and a shot from David Petesch that caromed underneath the top crossbar with enough English to land inside the line.That was just the beginning of a 5-1 Class 1A St. Edward regional boys soccer win for the Chargers, who advanced to Saturday's regional final at 11 a.m. to play No. 1 seed St. Edward at Greg True Field in Elgin.
