No. 2 Libertyville 10, No. 7 Wheeling 4 


The No. 2 seed in the Mundelein Sectional, Libertyville’s boys water polo team did what it was expected to do Wednesday night — dominate its first-round opponent. After a sluggish start, the Wildcats scored four times in the final 3:17 of the second quarter. Libertyville (15-8) easily defeated No. 7 Wheeling, 10-4.


Clinging to a 1-0 lead midway through the second quarter, Libertyville was struggling to find any consistency on offense. After a patient sequence, the Wildcats worked the ball inside to senior hole set Pat King. He fired a shot inside the right post for a 2-0 Libertyville lead. The Wildcats would score three times before halftime. 


King. Wheeling had no answer for King’s presence on the outside or in the middle of the pool. He scored two more times early in the third quarter and had three goals for the match. Libertyville got two goals from senior utility man Bobby Snader and junior Alex Kratcoski, and an excellent performance by sophomore goalie Andrew Fink. 


Fink did not allow a goal until 2:40 remained in the third quarter. 


“Being a No. 2 seed, that’s the highest we’ve ever been ranked. We wanted to get up [in the match] and stay up. And we did.” — Libertyville senior Adam King
