Waubonsie Valley now the highest seed remaining after a loss by Rockford earlier in the tournament. The Warriors take on the 10-seed PREP, the combined team from Palatine, Rolling Meadows, Elk Grove and Prospect.
Jake Stobart opens the scoring for Waubonsie midway through the first. Evan Pike’s shot is redirected right to the stick of Stobart for the one nothing lead.
Midway through the second, PREP on a power play. Donald Angelaccio needs two attempts but gets the puck past Jakob Swanson tying the game at one.
With under four to play in the game, Mitchell Collins puts home a rebound giving Waubonsie a 2-1 lead. But just a minute later PREP on the power play again, Andrew Erickson with the blue line, seeing eye, snapper finds its way passed Swanson tying the game at two.
Less than a minute to play in regulation, Jake Cirino fights through contact, chipping the puck over Anthony Catalano for the game-winning goal. Waubonsie now a win away from returning to the United Center.
