  • St. Francis hangs on for win Jun 1, 2011 10:52 PM
    There were a lot of nervous moments for the St. Francis baseball team Wednesday afternoon at the Class 3A Grayslake Central sectional. But when the dust had cleared, the Spartans celebrated a 6-5 semifinal victory over Ridgewood in a contest that featured plenty of suspense and drama. St. Francis (24-12) advances to the sectional championship game at 11 a.m. Saturday against either Vernon Hills or Richmond-Burton. Ridgewood (16-15) jumped out to a 1-0 lead against St. Francis starter Eric Stout as the Rebels scored on 1 hit in the top of the first with the benefit of three walks by the left-hander. The Spartans bounced right back to tie the game in the bottom of the first as a sacrifice fly by cleanup hitter Lonnie Hicks drove in leadoff hitter K.C. Zimmmerman, who had walked and moved to third on a single by Stout and a walk by Jack Petrando. The game really got interesting in the bottom of the fourth when St. Francis knocked Ridgewood freshman starter Anthony Mroz out of the game with a single by Tom Ameche, an infield hit by Jack Roback and an RBI double by Ryan Acciavatti. Roback scored and Acciavatti moved to third on the play when the Rebels botched the relay from center field. A wild pitch by Ridgewood reliever Billy Balatsos made the score 4-1 before a one-out RBI single by Stout drove in Preston Preusser, who had walked earlier in the wild rally. But when the ball got past the right fielder, Joel Birch also scored all the way from first base after walking for a 6-1 advantage. St. Francis made the lead hold up — barely. Ridgewood came right back in the top of the fifth with 4 runs on just 2 hits as a fielding error on a routine grounder started the Rebels’ comeback. After the error Stout walked the next two batters and he was replaced by Austin Wilkens, who walked the first batter he faced to make the score 6-2. A fielder’s choice RBI by Mroz made the score 6-3 before a wild pitch cut the gap to 6-4. Then an RBI single by Brian Costello made the score 6-5, but a great throw by St. Francis center fielder Scott Purdom cut down what would have been the tying run at home plate. After walking the first man he faced in relief, Roback got the third out of the inning on a popout to finally end the rally and preserve the 1-run lead. “We played well enough to win,” said St. Francis coach Rich Janor. “The guys didn’t do everything perfect, but we had some big hits and it was kind of a bend-not-break situation for us. In the end we made the pitches to win and this is the first time in school history we’re in the sectional finals.” While Stout got the win, Roback got the save when he came through in the fifth, sixth and seventh innings. In the sixth Ridgewood had men on second and third with one out before a grounder back to the mound and a flyout to deep center field got Roback out of the jam. In the seventh, with a man on second and one out, he got a groundout to second base and a popout to seal the exciting victory. Both teams had 6 hits with Ridgewood drawing 8 walks to 7 for the Spartans. “It was a fun game and we’re just glad we got the win,” Roback said. “I was just taking it one step at a time and I told myself, ‘I’m not letting this be my last high school game,’ and I pulled through.” St. Francis had just enough depth and poise to pull it out in the end. “This is the time of the season you have to rely on depth a little bit,” Janor said. “We had a lot of different guys get the job done.”

  • Ridgewood holds off Fenton in fourth quarter Mar 9, 2011 11:19 PM
    The adrenaline-fueled fourth quarter Ridgewood rode to victory on Wednesday night was too much for the relentless Fenton Bison to overcome. The Bison (11-20) cut the Rebels lead down to 2 points after three quarters, but Ridgewood hung tough for a 64-53 win at home in a Class 3A sectional semifinal in Norridge.

  • Scouting Fenton vs. Ridgewood Mar 8, 2011 10:28 PM
    Class 3A Ridgewood sectional semifinals No. 7 Fenton (11-19) vs. No. 3 Ridgewood (19-9) When: 7:30 p.m. Wednesday at Ridgewood High School in Norridge. Road to the sectional: Fenton beat No. 10 Chicago Academy, 71-47, and No. 15 Senn, 69-55. Ridgewood beat No. 14 Elmwood Park, 47-46, and No. 6 Lakes, 81-47. Outlook: Fenton made history last week by claiming the program’s first regional title in 35 years. The Bison may have benefitted from playing two lower seeds on their home court, but don’t underestimate the fact that Fenton is playing its best basketball of the season. Six-foot-three forward Dan Montano scored a total of 46 points last week, but winning the regional took a total team effort. That’s the effort the Bison need in their third showdown of the season against Metro Suburban Conference rival Ridgewood. The Bison split with the Rebels, winning the second meeting 69-62 behind Montano’s 33 points. It’s a different Ridgewood team from the start of the season. Two of the team’s five returning starters are no longer on the team, and it took time for the Rebels to develop a new team identity. The Mroz brothers, Pete and freshman Anthony, combined for 35 points in Ridgewood’s regional final win. With John Caravia and Andy Mazurczak, the Rebels hit 10 3-pointers to give the program its first regional title since 1998. While the Rebels present a smaller, quicker lineup, Fenton hopes to take advantage of an inside advantage. At 6-foot-2 Kyle Moriarty had a big rebounding game against Senn. As for defensive pressure from the Rebels, Bison guard Rob Palumbo did a nice job taking care of the ball in the regional final. Montano is the clear focal point for Fenton’s offense, but the Bison also need contributions from players like Jeremy Shimanek, who scored a total of 26 points in the regional. Advancement: Winner advances to play No. 1 North Chicago (15-13) in Friday’s sectional final.
