Barrington's strategy almost worked.

The visiting Fillies employed a double team on Fremd's offensive hole set, slowing down the normally high-scoring Vikings.


But not enough to prevent Fremd from winning a fifth straight Mid-Suburban West championship in girls water polo, and the first for coach Ray Roth.

Fremd defeated Barrington 7-5 Thursday to remain unbeaten in league play at 9-0. The Vikings are 20-2 overall and will meet Wheeling to decide the overall league championship.

On senior night, Vikings seniors Sam Matsuzewski and Emily McCarthy had 2 goals apiece. Lauren Zambelli, Breanna Anderson and Sam del Prado each had 1, and Julie Conrath made 16 saves.

Kate Luedtke scored 3 goals, Lisa Danhauer and Catherine Byron both had 1 and goalie Brooke Fanslow stopped 13 shots for Barrington (15-4, 6-3).

Conant 11, Schaumburg 7: Andrea Cobb had 4 goals and Kristi Burke 3 to help the host Cougars (18-7, 5-4) into third place in the Mid-Suburban West. Kristy Bessler led the way in scoring for Schaumburg (4-5, 9-12) with 4 goals; Conant goalie Jessica Davis made 22 stops.

Palatine 9, Hoffman Estates 7 (OT): Nicole Theis scored 4 goals and Nicole Huffman and Ashley Theis had 2 each to help the Pirates net an overtime triumph. Caroline Wojtas had 11 saves for Palatine (9-13, 3-6).

Hoffman Estates (3-23, 0-9) was led in scoring by Sharon Sturnfield with 4 goals.

Buffalo Grove 5, Hersey 3: Sara Fasching and Julie Pater scored 2 goals apiece to help the host Bison (16-5, 7-2) wrap up a runner-up finish in the Mid-Suburban East. Hersey fell to 11-13 overall and 2-7 in East Division play.
