  • Prairie Ridge turns the tables on Jacobs Oct 18, 2014 8:07 PM
    This time it was Prairie Ridge’s turn.

Prairie Ridge totaled 25 points to 19 for Jacobs. Crystal Lake Central was close behind in third with 16 points.

     
  • Girls cross country: Repeat NSC title for Lake Zurich Oct 18, 2014 8:09 PM
    After winning the North Suburban Conference title by 26 points last year over Vernon Hills, Lake Zurich knew it was definitely a contender to make it two in a row Saturday afternoon at Lake Forest’s west campus. And the determined Bears did exactly that on the slightly muddy and damp 3-mile course as they earned a third NSC championship in the last four years, finishing with 68 points to 89 for runner-up Warren. It turned out to be an epic battle for that second-place finish in the team standings as the Blue Devils edged Libertyville (93 points) in third, the host Scouts (94) in fourth, and Vernon Hills (96) in fifth.

     
  • Peralta carries Hoffman Estates past Glenbard East Oct 18, 2014 4:44 PM
    Penalty kicks are a nightmare for every goalkeeper. Well, almost every goalkeeper. Hoffman Estates senior Christian Peralta saved two of four spot kicks while his teammates converted all four of their attempts to help the Hawks defeat No. 16 seed Glenbard East 2-1 on Saturday afternoon in Lombard to advance in the Bartlett sectional complex.

     
  • Wauconda reverses fortunes against Round Lake Oct 18, 2014 8:19 PM
    Last-second losers each of its last two games, Wauconda this time played the role of heartbreaker at the end of a half. The only difference was that there were still another 24 minutes of football to play on Round Lake’s homecoming Saturday. “It shouldn’t have happened,” Round Lake coach Jordan Eder said after his Panthers yielded Kevin Malisheski’s desperation, 37-yard touchdown pass to Josh Anderson on the final play of the first half. “That’s a killer.” An upset loss to Round Lake would have killed Wauconda’s season. Instead, the Bulldogs rallied and got their must-win, 41-12 in a North Suburban Prairie Division contest that was a 1-point game until the visitors’ last-second heroics at the end of the opening half.

     
  • Conant’s Dale, Hersey repeat as MSL champs Oct 18, 2014 5:20 PM
    All eyes were fixed on Conant senior Zach Dale on Saturday at the Mid-Suburban League boys cross country meet, and the Cougar senior didn’t disappoint. Dale, who has a run conservative race schedule this season, showed no rust in running away with the victory in 14:58, earning himself a second consecutive MSL title at Busse Woods. “Maybe it wasn’t flashy,” said Conant coach John Powers of Dale’s victory. “But this was a matter of taking care of business, and he passed the eye test big-time.” Hersey also took care of business. The Huskies placed four runners in the top 12 in securing their second consecutive MSL title with 57 points, holding off a strong challenge from Buffalo Grove (63 points).

  • Girls golf: Prospect finishes fifth Oct 18, 2014 9:57 PM
    Not too many girls golf teams can graduate three Division I golfers and return to the state finals the following season without one. That’s exactly what Prospect’s girls golf team did this fall, making its fifth straight trip to Decatur this weekend. While the Knights may not have brought home a trophy this time, the fact they were even in a factor for the team title after day one was an achievement in itself. On Saturday, Hinsdale Central pulled away from the field on the Hickory Point Golf Club and finished with a score of 634 to top Loyola (649), New Trier (653), Wheaton-Warrenville South (661), Sandburg (678), Prospect (679) and Waubonsie Valley (679).

     
  • Stevenson’s still winning, and so is Palatine’s Kawai Oct 18, 2014 9:52 PM
    Just a week removed from Saturday’s North Suburban Conference title effort, Stevenson continued its winning ways. This version of sectional tennis host by the Patriots was played Friday and Saturday at three different venues, due to volatile weather: Vernon Hills Sports Complex, and indoors at the Libertyville Tennis Club and College Park in Deerfield. The Patriots finished at 31 points, with Barrington second with 25. Fremd and Palatine tied for third with 10 points apiece. All four Stevenson entrants qualified for the state tournament, which will be hosted by Buffalo Grove Thursday through Saturday. Palatine freshman Asuka Kawai stayed unbeaten this season by topping Barrington's Michelle Linden in the singles final.

     
  • Westminster Christian records 3rd win Oct 18, 2014 11:03 PM
    Although Westminster Christian’s football team was detoured from postseason action last week in its second season of varsity play, it didn’t stop the Warriors from setting new benchmarks for the program. Coach John Davis wanted to see his team score as many points as possible and the Warriors surely took notice as they snapped a 3-game skid with their third win of the year, a 49-0 rout of Christian Liberty in Northeastern Athletic action in Arlington Heights Saturday that surpassed last year’s win total of two.

For the first time in years, they advanced to the title match of the 16-team Maine West Pumpkin Invite. Sandburg won the championship 25-18, 28-26 after Hersey defeated Lyons 25-23, 25-23 in the semifinals. The Huskies also netted a 25-18, 25-23 triumph over Riverside-Brookfield in the quarterfinals and defeated Lockport (25-22 20-25 25-21) and Conant (25-16, 25-8) in Friday’s pool play.

  • Sectional title is patient Warren’s reward Oct 18, 2014 11:07 PM
    It was worth the wait for Warren’s girls tennis team. Morning rain showers pushed back the start of the final day of the Lakes sectional in Lake Villa on Saturday. After the resumption of play by midafternoon, matches didn’t conclude into the evening hours under the lights at Lakes. Warren advanced both of its singles players and doubles team to this week’s state tournament. The Blue Devils won the sectional with 35 points, Antioch was distant second with 17 and Grayslake Central placed third with 16 in the 10-team field.
