Clinging to a one-goal lead after three quarters, the No. 9-seeded Titans scored two goals early in the final quarter Tuesday in Des Plaines to pull away from the No. 8 Warriors. The Titans advanced to the quarterfinals of the Glenbrook South girls water polo sectional with the win. Glenbrook South (7-19) plays top-seeded Loyola at 4:30 p.m. Thursday.


Junior Rachel Spector’s first goal of the game came at the right time. Her score in the opening minutes of the fourth gave the Titans a 5-3 lead and some breathing room against the Warriors (16-15). Junior Diana Capote followed with a goal for a 6-3 lead, and Glenbrook South led Maine West by at least two goals the rest of the quarter.


Senior Rema Abu-Hashim scored a team-high three goals for Glenbrook South. Her second goal on a player-up advantage broke a 3-all tie midway through the third quarter.


Maine West was led by Emily Morrison, who matched Abu-Hashim with three goals. Kristen Burger had two goals for the Warriors. Capote scored two goals in the winning effort. The teams combined for six goals in the fourth quarter. After losing to Maine West 10-7 on March 18, the Titans beat the Warriors 7-6 Thursday to end the regular season. Glenbrook South has won three of its last four games.


“We changed our offense midway through the second half and started working more from the outside. I think that was the difference.” — Glenbrook South coach Mike Stancik
