  • Uveges’ goal lifts South Elgin over BartlettApr 1, 2014 12:00 AM
    It would have been a hard April Fool’s joke to swallow for South Elgin if one of its 31 shots didn’t go in during a 1-0 Upstate Eight Valley girls soccer win over rival Bartlett at Millennium Field Tuesday. After all, the Storm’s defense didn’t allow much to get to goalie Jordan Vaulkner and South Elgin outshout the Hawks by 27. But Bartlett’s best antics behind goalkeeper Amanda Lozada’s 17 saves brought South Elgin to the brink and as Storm coach Tiffany Disher said it for her team, “if (Bartlett) were to break away and just get one, it would be a sad story for us.”

  • Warren’s Chris Mathieu, left, dives back to first, beating the tag by Carmel’s Andrew Wienke on Tuesday at Warren.

    Kristan’s clout key for CarmelApr 1, 2014 12:00 AM
    That was just plain cold. Colder than the unseasonably cool weather Warren’s baseball team encountered on its spring-break trip downstate last week. In their home opener Tuesday, the Blue Devils got chilled by a game-tying solo homer by Carmel Catholic’s Ian Kristan in the seventh inning. When Warren failed to plate a run in its half of the seventh, the nonconference game was called due to darkness. Which meant the 2½-hour contest ended in a 4-4 tie. “It hurts more than a loss,” Blue Devils junior outfielder Chris Mathieu said.

    Pardon Emily Borg if she wanted to admire her mammoth game-winning grand slam home run. Borg’s slam off Barrington’s Keenan Dolezal with one out in the ninth inning gave Jacobs an exhilarating 7-3 win over the stunned Fillies in nonconference softball action in Algonquin Tuesday afternoon.

  • A kill attempt by St. Viator’s Ryan Schiller, left, is blocked at the net by Barrington’s Colin Castagna, middle, and Connor Wright during Tuesday’s boys volleyball game in Arlington Heights.

    Barrington takes St. Viator’s best shotApr 1, 2014 12:00 AM
    Opening-match jitters? Not Tuesday night at Cahill Gymnasium in Arlington Heights. In a game that had more of a postseason feel than an early season contest featuring two of the area’s better teams, Barrington and St. Viator duked it out like a couple of heavyweights.

You can’t really think about what you’re going to do after,” Mogavero said. “You just have to make sure the energy you have, you use it for the game.” When it mattered most against Addison Trail, Mogavero was prepared. His 2-run triple in the bottom of the fifth inning was the game-winning hit in the Rams’ 8-4 victory at the Plunkett Sports Complex in Elmhurst.
