Tigers’ run ends
MENDOTA — The Princeton Tigers’ goal for winning a state title was dashed Saturday evening in Mendota.
Somonauk kept the pressure on the Tigers for nearly all of the 80 minutes in the 2-0 victory to claim the Mendota Sectional championship. Princeton had 18 wins going into the sectional and had hoped to make it all the way to the state championship. Unfortunately, Somonauk’s 20-shot effort was too much for Princeton.
“They did a nice job putting pressure on us. I thought our defense played very well. There were a couple of unlucky bounces but that is part of the game. We got a couple of lucky bounces the other night and sometimes they go your way, sometimes they don’t. We had some opportunities,” PHS coach Jason Bird said.
