Led by senior all-around champion Kevin Hamilton (8.58 average), the host Titans captured a 136.8 to 128.2 nonconference victory over the Patriots in Glenview.

  • Zabriske, Titans too much for Prospect Aug 27, 2011 1:24 AM
    Prospect had no answer for Glenbrook South quarterback Mac Zabriske on Friday night in Glenview for both teams’ season openers. Zabriske completed 8 of 12 passes with 1 interception for 148 yards and 4 touchdowns as the Titans defeated the Knights 34-10 at John Davis Stadium in a nonconference game. New Prospect coach Mike Sebestyen lost his debut as the Knights’ head coach after Brent Pearlman stepped down last season. “The turnovers (3) hurt us,” Sebestyen said. “As we talked about, for this team, with the small numbers that we have, we need to be detailed and disciplined. And at times we were not disciplined.” The Knights started out well, taking the opening kick off in the first quarter and taking a 3-0 lead courtesy of Vito Anzalone’s 32 yard field goal. A fumble recovery by the Titans’ Gus Shipp led to Zabriske’s 9-yard touchdown pass to Zach Jones on the first play of the second quarter for a 7-3 lead. Following a Knight punt Zabriske tossed a 44 yard TD pass to Sully Stadler for a 13-3 lead with 8:22 left in the first half. With :54 left in the half Zabriske found Charlie Tisch with a 14 yard scoring pass and a 20-3 lead. B.J. Hoekstra’s interception set up the score. Sophomore running back Sam Mazukelli (14 carries 94 yds.) broke loose on a 44 yard run to make the score 20-10 with 9:34 left in the quarter. “We just had some unexcusable mistakes,” said Sebestyen. “We will learn from them and be better next week. Sam Frasco and Mazukelli had some big runs for us.” Frasco rushed 12 times for 56 yards before being sidline in the third quarter with cramps.

  • Buffalo Grove works extra, extra hard to advance May 18, 2011 12:07 AM
    With inspiration stemming from keeper Katie Okamoto, No. 12 Buffalo Grove (10-8-3) stunned No. 5 Glenbrook South in a shootout to defeat the Titans (16-5-3) by a 2-1 verdict (3-1 on penalty kicks) and advance to Saturday’s regional final at Palatine against the host Pirates at 11 a.m. The Titans, who entered their tourney opener unscored upon in their last 12 matches, looked rattled from the first minute to the eighth when Carolynn Wieland, who played marvelous soccer for 120 minutes, finished on the tail end of a wonderful little slalom run through the center channel — after freshmen Skylar Groth sent the team’s leading goal-scorer through. After that, the Bison, perhaps one of the youngest sides in this regional, played as if they were a veteran-filled roster, as Pat Dudle’s club showed terrific composure in each and every 50-50 challenge while playing with speed and possession through the middle to help keep the Titans at bay — until they would equalize at 53 minutes. “We’re finally getting healthy after going through a rough bout of injuries, and, yes, we might have grown up as a team tonight after playing so much soccer, against a well coached team like South,” said Dudle. “I really feel the turf fits the way this team plays, and tonight we showed that we could play fast (and) quick, from back to front,” said Wieland, who all throughout the match was beaten and battered whenever the junior would hold up top for her teammates, on on the turn, when she was most dangerous — with many of her carries ending on a quality shot on frame. The Titans used their size advantage in the middle of the park, but they were still unable to play through the midfield thanks in part to the Bison backline — led by Kelly Mahoney, Lindsay Puppolo and Sierra Bugno and the extra work from the freshmen duo of Colleen and Kelli Zickert. The Bison allowed the equalizer just moments after Okamoto made a point-blank save on April Cronin — which led to a rebound and loose ball which an opportunistic Nina Kodras thumped into the back of the net. The talented senior nearly helped create a sensational scoring opportunity for Cronin when her heel flick almost found her teammate in close in the 106th minute. But that was it for Kotros, who was held in check including the 40 minutes of 4-overtime extra soccer. The Bison clearly enjoyed the run of play in OT, and generated a couple of quality opportunities. Once into shootout, the first two rounds went scoreless — until Groth converted to the right of the diving Kelsey Byers and the Titans’ Cronin easily went into the back of the net. Carly Brown, a bundle of energy on the outside for the Bison, buried her attempt to make it 2-1 ... then it was Okamoto’s turn for heroics as she stopped Kathryn Ficho. A cool, calm Wieland stepped up and sealed the Bison’ victory — and send the members on the bench racing out to meet both her and their keeper to celebrate. “When the GBS keeper made a save on our first PK attempt, then I started to feel a little stressed out, but after I made my first save, then I was relaxed after that,” said Okamoto with a smile.

  • Glenbrook South nips Huntley in PKs Apr 14, 2011 9:10 PM
