No. 1: By playing Buffalo Grove to a 0-0 double-overtime draw, Hersey (16-4-1) captured the Mid-Suburban East and will meet Barrington in the MSL Cup Wednesday night. Senior keeper Morgan Harris did not surrender a goal in the Huskies’ 11 conference games. She has registered 16 shutouts and a .28 goals against average. “That’s my job,” she said. “That’s what I’m there for.”

No. 2: With five-time defending sectional champion Barrington shifted to a different location, Huntley has emerged as the favorite of the Class 3A Rockford Auburn Sectional. All six of the Red Raiders’ losses are by one goal, including 1-0 defeats against New Trier and St. Charles North. Interestingly, all 12 Huntley victories are by shutout, recorded by standout keeper Jessica Galason. Taryn Jakubowski has 18 goals and 5 assists.

No. 3: The Class 1A state tournament moves to the regional final round this weekend. Led by Emily Gaither (31 goals) and Sophia Schnitzler (21 goals), Manteno is the favorite to end the reign of Downstate power Quincy Notre Dame. Also watch out for St. Edward (20-2), led by four four-year starters: the school’s all-time scoring leader, forward Allison Kruk, midfielders Corey Lepoudre and Monica Ramirez and defender Emily Witt. The four led the Green Wave to a fourth-place finish in the 2011 state tournament.
