Boys soccer: Stevenson scores season-opening win
Stevenson 4, Schurz 0: Steven O'Reilly scored twice, and Stevenson's boys soccer team opened its season by shutting out Schurz 4-0 in the Glenbrook South tournament on Wednesday.
Jake Nunez and Austin Kody also scored for the Patriots, while Elliot Lueck added a pair of assists. Ben Brandt and Joel Fleming also assisted on goals. Ethan Kalis made 4 saves in goal and earned the shutout for the Patriots.
Grayslake North 4, Grant 1: At Grant, senior Grant Nickolson had a hat trick, as the Knights won for the second night in a row.
Jason Rhodes also scored for Grayslake North (2-3), which got assists from Angel Uriostegui, Jake Schultz and Ben Tompoles. The sophomore Uriostegui set up Nickolson for the first goal just 10 minutes into the match.
"Tonight we started quickly as we managed to put and keep Grant under some early and consistent pressure, which resulted in several quality scoring chances," Knights coach Adam DeCaluwe said.
Grant's only goal came from Danny Talavera, who converted a penalty kick. Bulldogs keeper Oscar Delgado made 10 saves.
Crystal Lake South 3, Antioch 1: The visiting Gators scored all of their goals in the first half of the nonconference match.
Antioch also scored its goal in the opening half, as Gabe Tijerina fired in a shot.
"We opened tentative against a physical and fast CLS team but held strong for 20 minutes," Antioch assistant coach Matt Bohmann said. "Gabe scored a screamer from 25 yards out about halfway through the half, and we thought it would settle us down. CLS responded with 3 goals in a short span and then physically controlled the game."
Despite what Bohmann called a "stronger" effort in the second half, the Sequoits fell to 1-3-1.
Glenbrook North 2, Libertyville 0: Wildcats keeper Thomas Pearson made 7 saves in the losing effort.
