  • CL Central makes it tough on Grayslake N. Oct 4, 2013 11:29 PM
    Crystal Lake Central's Kyle Lavand threw for two scores in the second half, but his 59-yard breakaway scoring run with 1:46 left in the third quarter was the key play in a 35-6 win over Grayslake North that gave the Tigers a spot all alone in first place in the FVC Fox Division.

  • Crystal Lake C. beats Huntley with late TD Sep 20, 2013 11:48 PM
    Snakebit. Squandering a lead late in the game for a second straight week, Huntley’s defense could only watch in stunned silence as Crystal Lake Central scored with 13.6 seconds left on a 15 yard pass from Kyle Lavand to Eric Hjerstedt and the Tigers defeated the Red Raiders 34-27 in Fox Valley Conference crossover action in Huntley Friday night. “The kids did everything to win the game,” said Huntley coach John Hart. “I am very proud of the kids. Central made the plays when they had to. Our goal is to make the playoffs so we have to bounce back against a very good Dundee-Crown team next week.”

  • Crystal Lake co-op runs away with McHenry title Sep 17, 2013 10:13 PM
    The recipe for success for the Crystal Lake Central co-op girls golf team has been concocted with the right mix of players from three high schools. But it was also clear the Tigers have blended more than just their solid golf talents after their six players finished in the top 11 spots. They shot 304 and cruised to the McHenry County Girls Golf Tournament title at Boone Creek Golf Club in Bull Valley on Tuesday afternoon.

  • Crystal Lake Central runs past Hampshire Sep 14, 2013 12:19 AM
    Was Jason Voorhees wearing a Crystal Lake Central Kyle Lavand jersey Friday night? Or was Lavand just wearing the wrong helmet? Either way, the senior hosted his own Quarterback Camp Crystal Lake and was a Friday the 13th nightmare for visiting Hampshire. Known for his arm in the Tigers’ spread offense, Lavand decided to become a dual-threat monster. Along with 2 touchdown passes, an interception and 12 of 22 for 250 yards passing, Lavand rushed 24 times out of the spread for 150 yards and a touchdown to total 400 of the Tigers’ 513 total yards in Central’s 46-21 Fox Valley Conference Fox win over the Whip-Purs at Owen Metcalf Field in Crystal Lake.

  • Crystal Lake South gets past Crystal Lake C. Sep 6, 2013 11:09 PM
    Without an offensive point for a little over 7 quarters during the early portion of the 2013 football season, Crystal Lake South’s offensive explosion came at the right time. Scoring 2 touchdowns in a 4 minute, 47 second span in the fourth quarter, the Gators were able to rally for a 14-7 Fox Valley Conference crossover win over city rival Crystal Lake Central at Central’s Metcalf Field Friday night.

  • Jacobs’ Van Vlierbergen a pain-free 2nd Aug 31, 2013 1:09 PM
    It was a mixed bag for Jacobs junior Lauren Van Vlierbergen at Saturday’s McHenry County Cross Country Meet held at McHenry County Township Park in Johnsburg. Van Vlierbergen was a little disappointed she finished a distant second to county champion Maura Beattie of Woodstock, but Van Vlierbergen was happy she was able to run the 3-mile course pain free. Van Vlierbergen, who was hindered by a hip injury all last season during the cross country and track seasons, placed second with a time of 18:37.9. Beattie breezed through the course in a clocking of 17:52.5 to claim the county championship.

  • Grant can’t keep pace with Crystal Lake Central Sep 1, 2013 12:00 AM
    Crystal Lake Central switched to an up-tempo, no-huddle offense this season with the hope of wearing down opponents. That’s essentially what happened when the Tigers rallied in the fourth quarter to beat Grant 29-15 in Fox Lake on Saturday.

  • Crystal Lake Central, Grant postponed Aug 30, 2013 10:23 PM
    Friday’s scheduled game between Crystal Lake Central and host Grant was postponed by storm weather. It has been rescheduled for 7:30 p.m. Saturday at Grant.

  • Hampshire hoping to make some noise in FVC Fox Aug 26, 2013 9:31 PM
    If defense wins games Hampshire’s football team should be feeling rather good about itself. Whip-Purs coach Dan Cavanaugh, the dean of Fox Valley area football coaches in his 25th season, likes the makeup of his defense, which returns plenty of talent and experience up front in Leighton Sheetz (6-0, 275, DT), Mike Gibas (6-2, 240), Matt Kielbasa (6-2, 250, DE) and Steve Kirkwood (5-10, 185, DE). Inside linebackers Brandan Swanson (6-0, 170) and Ben Bednarek (5-10, 210) also are back.

  • FVC Valley wide open, but don’t count out Cary-Grove Aug 26, 2013 8:21 PM
    It’s probably not a good idea to sell the Cary-Grove football team short. Despite graduating a large portion of last year’s team that reached the Class 6A state title game, third-year coach Brad Seaburg is far from waving a white flag for the defending Fox Valley Conference Valley Division champions. “We have the athleticism and we’re starting to see some leadership emerging,” he said of his junior-heavy lineup. “On paper and after seeing what we’ve seen in practice with our enthusiasm, effort and execution so far, we feel like we should be able to compete for a conference championship, for sure.”

  • Sciaccotta steps in, and Barrington moves on May 20, 2013 8:56 PM
    Just before the start of the game, Barrington's Joey Sciaccotta had to move from playing second base to shortstop after Dylan Lidge's hip pointer acted up. While the defensive move had Sciaccotta a bit unnerved for the first few innings, the junior took out his frustrations at the plate. Sciaccotta had 2 hits, including a huge two-out single in the sixth inning to drive in the eventual winning run as host Barrington edged Crystal Lake Central 4-3 in a Class 4A regional play-in game.

  • Huntley, McHenry graciously share county crown Apr 20, 2013 11:15 PM
    Huntley and McHenry were well suited to split the 2013 McHenry County Boys Track and Field Meet title in Cary Saturday. “It’s great that we tied,” Huntley relay anchor Mike Dollar said. “We both competed really hard. I have a lot of buddies on McHenry and I have since middle school.” Once the meet concluded athletes from both programs posed together with the trophy. Even the chummy coaches seemed satisfied with the split decision of a meet delayed two days by bad weather, though both expressed some surprise at the outcome.

  • Cary-Grove girls make it 5 straight county titles Apr 20, 2013 10:21 PM
    Cary-Grove’s drive for five didn’t come easy. The Trojans edged Huntley by 7 points to win their fifth consecutive McHenry County Girls Track and Field Meet on a crisp Saturday in Cary, and they did so by navigating potholes. Sophomore Morgan Schulz tweaked an ankle in warm-ups and had to pull out of the 800-meter relay, which finished second only to Huntley. The Trojans relinquished points in the day’s second race when the 400-meter relay team dropped the baton and finished sixth.

  • Dundee-Crown pulls out win over Crystal Lake C. Apr 6, 2013 6:39 PM
    When the time came to make clutch plays, whether down or trying to preserve the lead, Dundee-Crown's baseball team never squandered an opportunity. And it wasn't just in situations at the plate, the Chargers did so with defensive muster and heads-up base running as well. The latter accounted for the winning run as Ryan Suwanski, who led off the bottom of the seventh in a tied ballgame with a single, advanced on 2 wild pitches by Crystal Lake Central's Jacob Roley, the last skipping past Central's catcher as Suwanski advanced from third for an 11-10 victory over the Tigers in Fox Valley Conference action during a wind-tunneled Saturday morning in Carpentersville.

  • Huntley pounds out 20 hits in 16-0 win Apr 5, 2013 8:52 PM
    With the temperature hovering around 45 degrees, it didn't seem like a day hitters would thrive. The Huntley hitters certainly didn't mind the chilly conditions. Pounding out 20 hits with 6 extra base hits, the Red Raiders were able to pummel Crystal Lake Central 16-0 in a 5-inning Fox Valley Conference crossover softball game in Crystal Lake Friday afternoon. "I was really proud of how many quality at bats we had today," said Huntley coach Mark Petryniec. "Our approach was excellent and our pitch selection was excellent. We worked the count and swung at good pitches. It was good to see us swing the bats so well against quality pitching like Central has."

  • Boylan knocks out Crystal Lake Central Mar 7, 2013 11:43 PM
    Last Friday in Crystal Lake Central’s Class 4A regional championship win over Jacobs, Golden Eagles boys basketball coach Jim Hinkle simply did not have a game plan for Central’s Jake VanScoyoc, who just kind of slipped through the cracks as he scored all of his 13 points in the first half during the win. “Who the heck is this Vasquez guy?” Hinkle exclaimed. “We didn’t even talk about him in practice.” During Thursday night’s Class 4A sectional semifinal against Rockford Boylan, anScoyoc was back at it again as the guard hit his first 5 shots and went for 11 points in the first quarter, providing Central quite a spark as the Tigers broke out to a 15-point lead on the Titans in the game’s first 8 minutes. VanScoyoc finished with a game-high 18 points for CL Central, but that 15-point lead didn’t last very long as the Tigers couldn’t finish like they started. Central managed 15 points between the first and fourth quarters thanks to Boylan’s defense, which stepped up immensely after Central shot 8 of 14 from the field in the first quarter and CLC had no answer for guard Demarcus Vines, who sliced his way through the lane over and over again for 15 points in a 60-49 win over the Tigers, to conclude Central’s season at 27-4.
