No. 3 Elk Grove 16, No. 6 Evanston 2

No. 4 Wilmette 19, No. 5 Glenview 8

After Wednesday’s second wave of games at various local sites, which include two eliminate contests, the tournament heads to Arlington Heights’ Recreation Park on Thursday for the rest of the week. Thursday’s schedule includes games at noon, 3:30 p.m., 7 p.m. Friday’s two games are at 3 p.m. and 7 p.m. Saturday’s final is 11 a.m. If necessary, the second game is scheduled for 2:15 p.m.
