Crystal Lake South wins tournament: In a game where 12 different players scored a goal, the Gators (9-2-2) clinched the title of champion at the Prairie Ridge Tournament with a 3-0 win over the hosts and a 12-0 win over Proviso East. Kimmy Sulikosski had a goal and an assist in the second half, ensuring that the Gators would take home a 3-0 win over Prairie Ridge to start their day. Elizabeth Masset and Taylor Mraz both scored as well as keeper Jaclyn finished with 6 saves in goal. The game against Proviso East was assuredly decided by the half as CL South lead 9-0, winning 12-0 and dominating possession of the ball to the point that Przybylski had no saves in goal. Brandie Minogue, Jenna Ross and Alex Romano each had a goal and an assist in the blowout.

South Elgin goes unbeaten: The Storm (8-3-2) scored 9 goals in their first game, but couldn't translate that into offense in the second as they defeated Proviso East 9-0 but tied host Prairie Ridge 0-0 at the PR tournament. Jackie DeLaMora and Jourdan Vaulkner split time in goal and saw little action on their end in the first game against Proviso East, each ending the game without a save. The offense did most of the work early, scoring 7 times in the first half alone. In the second game, the Storm could not find the back of the net, but luckily for them neither could host Prairie Ridge as DeLaMora stonewalled them, grabbing 8 saves and shutting out the Wolves.

Elgin comes up short: Losing both games by a 2-0 score, the Maroons (5-6) could not find their offensive rhythm as they dropped games to Wauwatosa East and University High (Normal) at Prospect. Goalkeeper Hannah Demel had her work cut out for her in both games, as she had 2 saves in the first game and stopped 3 in the second.

Indian Creek 2, Hampshire 1 (PKs): A 1-0 lead at half was not enough of a cushion for the Whip-Purs (3-7) as they fell on penalty kicks in the conclusion of the Barbs Tournament in DeKalb. Indian Creek got one past keeper Kaila Kienzler in the second half and two more in penalty kicks. Miah Thompson had the lone goal in regulation on an assist from Kaila Higa, while Higa netted the only goal in the shootout.

University High 8, Elgin Academy 2: The Hilltoppers scored first but found themselves down 8-1 at the half, dropping an Independent School league tilt on the road. Senior captain Veronica Clements scored both goals unassisted, while keeper Kaleigh Richetti finished the day with 9 saves.
