  • Glenbard South guts out regional final win Feb 18, 2012 12:34 AM
    Glenbard South is going home again, but Nazareth made the young Raiders earn a happy bus ride back. Glenbard South had to rally to force overtime, then gutted out a 49-45 victory at the Class 3A Nazareth girls basketball regional final in LaGrange Park on Friday night. After seeing how Nazareth (11-15) benefitted from a homecourt advantage and a rowdy student cheering section, the Raiders (17-11) will have their own homecourt advantage Tuesday night when they host St. Joseph in an 8:10 p.m. sectional semifinal. “Nazareth played a tremendous game, my girls dug deep, that’s the kind of basketball you want to see at this time of year,” said Raiders coach Julie Fonda, who played three freshmen and two sophomores. A 9-0 first-quarter run gave the Raiders a lead they held until Patricia Masterson tied the game at 40 with 1:44 to play in the fourth quarter, then gave the Roadrunners a 2-point lead with a pair of free throws with 26 seconds left. “We were kind of nervous, but we just kept our heads up and kept pushing because we know what we wanted,” Raiders senior Patrice Hicks said. “We wanted a regional championship, and that’s what we got.” As time wound down, the Raiders looked for a shot against Nazareth’s aggressive 2-3 zone. The ball wound up in Jenna Brambora’s hands, and the freshman drove down the middle of the lane for a runner that banked in with two seconds on the clock. “I just heard them counting down and I knew we were hurried to make the shot and tie, so I was aggressive, and took it in, and if I didn’t make it, hoping to draw a foul,” Brambora said. “That was awesome,” Hicks said. “A freshman tying the game up in a regional championship, that was amazing.” The overtime period was scoreless the first 2½ minutes until freshman Ivana Markovic fed classmate Sydney Bauman for a short jumper and a lead the Raiders never gave up despite the Roadrunners’ pressure. Stefani Bazigos scored 10 to lead Glenbard South, Brambora and Tomei Ball added 9, but Fonda clearly leaned on Hicks down the stretch, and Hicks responded, finishing with 5 points and 9 key rebounds. “She’s had her ups and downs this year, and she’s come a long way, and she’s a kid that I’ll never give up on,” Fonda said. “She carried us a little bit toward the end. “I talked to her before the game even started, and it was one of the first games she started in a very long time, and I told her, put us on your back and carry us. ... She did the intangibles. I don’t think she had very many points, but the rebounding is irreplaceable. When she goes up to get a board, she’s head and shoulders above everybody else, and she does a great job of securing the basketball.”

  • St. Viator closes in on history Feb 13, 2012 11:34 PM

  • St. Viator can’t catch Road Runners Oct 22, 2011 9:24 PM
    The St. Viator Lions made the trek to LaGrange Park on Saturday hoping to quash Nazareth’s bid for an East Suburban Catholic Conference championship. But the Road Runners were true to their nickname, drubbing the Lions 51-14 to earn a share of the ESCC crown with Marist — the first title in Nazareth school history. “We just couldn’t keep up with their speed,” said Lions coach Chris Kirkpatrick. “They just wore us down towards the end. The character and the hard work was here today and all season.” Nazareth (8-1, 7-1) jumped out to a 21-0 lead before the Lions (2-7, 1-7) knew what hit them. Joshua Moore caught a 17-yard pass from quarterback Sam Poulos with 8:02 left in the first quarter for a 7-0 lead on Nazareth’s first posession. The Road Runners deflected a punt and took over at the Lions’ 26. Moore ran 23 yards on first down and Kevin Curtin scored from the 5-yard line on the next play for a 14-0 lead with 6:16 left in the quarter. Kalium Ewing picked off a pass by the Lions’ Mickey Macius (11-for-31, 114 yards, 4 interceptions) at the Road Runners’ 35 and returned the ball 65 yards for a 21-0 lead. “We really played well the first six or so minutes,” said Nazareth coach Tim Racki. “I thought it might be easy, but to St.Viator’s credit they didn’t quit and made a nice comeback.” On their next possession, the Lions marched 74 yards to score on A. J. Wergzyn’s 3-yard run to cut the lead to 21-7 with six seconds left in the quarter. Moore scored again for Nazareth with 7:09 remaining in the half on a 3-yard run. St.Viator cut the lead to 28-14 just before the half on Macius’ 13-yard pass to Brian Guth with 1:11 left. Moore broke the Lions’ back by breaking loose for a 52-yard TD run with 6:25 left in the third quarter and a 35-14 lead. “Our line executed well on that run,” said Moore, who rushed for 132 yards in 13 attempts. “There was the seam and I found it and went to the promised land. We didn’t set a goal for the conference championship, but we knew if we worked hard it could happen.” “It was a big one,” said Racki about Moore’s run. “Sometimes he takeas a little time to get going, but the offensive line took it personally that they did not block well in the second half. This was a great win for the school and community.” Ewing returned his second interception for a 28-yard TD and a 42-14 lead. “I was reading their quarterback pretty well and got to know their routes,” said Ewing. “I thought our defense could be a factor in this game. The coaches prepared us well.”
