Stiff test awaits Warriors. While Waubonsie Valley rebounded from a season-opening 2-1 road loss to Lyons, the Warriors’ 10-match unbeaten (7-0-3) streak will be on the line in Thursday’s Naperville Invitational match against Plainfield North. The contest could prove pivotal in deciding the top seed for the loaded Naperville North Sectional. Waubonsie is led by the stellar net-minding from Emma Rigby and the scoring punch of Kristen Dodson and Mackenzie Fuller.
Mustangs serve notice. Metea Valley may not have cracked the Top 10 in the poll, but don’t overlook coach Pat Feulner’s 8-2-1 unit. Iowa-bound Jenna Kentgen heads the attack with the two losses coming to No. 1 Buffalo Grove and Plainfield North.
Feast or famine Foxes. Yorkville’s roller coaster ride to a 4-4-0 start has featured either shutout victories or clean sheet losses. The weekend features a thrill if the Foxes can crank up their offense for a Saturday Barbfest Tournament championship in which Yorkville tries to knock off defending event champion and host DeKalb. It’ll be the second of three meetings with the Foxes having lost (4-0) a Northern Illinois Big 12 Conference visit to DeKalb.
