Congratulations to the 2017 All-State Selections.
In the second game of the sectional semi-finals at St. Francis, Lyons again met the Eagles Co-Op. Lyons prevailed 20-3 in its regular season game against the Eagles, and tonight was only slightly different with Lyons winning 20-2.
Barrington came out of the blocks on fire Wednesday night at St Francis, running out to a 2-0 lead in the first five minutes of the game. Barrington`s zone defense was frustrating the Wildcats, who managed to finally score their first goal of the game at 13:11. But, Neuqua then followed up with two quick goals to take the lead 3-2 at 11:46. Neuqua focused first on solo dodges into the eight and those attempts were rebuffed by the Fillies` defense. Neuqua then started feeding into the eight from up top and the sides, with limited success as the Barrington defenders had their sticks up at all times in the center and passing lanes. Barrington tied the contest 4-4 at 2:57, but was unable to muster any more scores in the half and let Neuqua onto their doorstep to take the lead again, 5-4 at 0:06.
