Best of the West
The Best of the West Soccer tournament is still underway with Oswego High School facing off against Benet Academy last night at Naperville North. The Redwings came out at full speed and with 14 minutes left in the first half, Nick Renfro bends one over to Nicholas Trazscels’s head who then pushes it to Jason Rowaiyes who nudges it in. The goals wouldn’t stop with CJ Warren and Tiarnan Gallagher tacking two more goals on to help the Redwings to a 3-1 victory over the Panthers. The tournament continues on Saturday with Benet facing off against Naperville North.
