Goll, Stevenson soak up a victory at Glenbrook N.
May 31, 2013 10:54 PM -
So filthy good was Mitchell Goll's shot that he might never better it. During a second-inning at-bat in Friday's Class 4A Glenbrook North sectional semifinal, the Stevenson junior fouled a pitch by Glenbrook South's Kyle Pauly over the backstop. The baseball splashed into a garbage can filled with soggy contents due to Thursday's downpour. "Did it really?" said Goll, who was unaware of his funny foul ball. Nothing but wet. Goll hit another shot in the fourth. It was fair. And far. His first varsity home run erased a 2-0 deficit, and he and his teammates continued to execute en route to a 6-4 upset of second-seeded Glenbrook South in Northbrook. No. 6 Stevenson (21-11) will face No. 5 Libertyville (25-11) at 11 a.m. Saturday in a showdown of North Suburban Conference Lake Division rivals. The Patriots and Wildcats split their two games during NSC Lake play.
