Naperville North defends its Best of the West crown against Naperville Central. The last time these two were on the pitch together, the Redhawks knocked the Huskies out of the playoffs.
Central got the scoring started first. In the 11th minute, Frank DeStefano timed up a bouncing ball and drilled it past a diving Tommy Welch.
North would strike 10 minutes later. Off the corner kick, Will Ritzmann steps in front and gets just enough of it to beat Wesley Sprague, tying the match at one.
In the 31st minute, North’s Jack Bromagen scored what proved to be the game winner. Huskies win back-to-back Best of the West tournaments after not winning since 2010.
