1. It’s Survivor: The Sectional. One pool in every World Cup is labeled the Group of Death. In Class 3A, the Naperville North Sectional qualifies for that description. Should the seeds be accurate, five teams from the Sun-Times’ Top 20 are possibilities to make the semifinals: Potentially No. 1 Waubonsie Valley vs. No. 8 Neuqua Valley (or No. 11 Naperville North), plus No. 6 Plainfield North vs. No. 7 Metea Valley.
2. She’s on a roll. Metea Valley’s Jenna Kentgen has a goal or an assist in each of the Mustangs’ last 14 outings. The Iowa signee didn’t figure into the Mustangs’ scoring in only two of 20 game. She leads Metea (15-3-2) in goals (12), game-winning goals (8), assists (12) and points (54).
3. You again? Saturday’s Class 2A Rosary Regional championship between Kaneland and the host Royals marks the fourth time in the last five seasons the two schools have met in the postseason. Rosary beat the Knights 2-1 for regional titles in 2013 and 2011, while the Royals managed a 1-0 sectional semifinal victory back in 2010.
