  • CALUMET CITY | It may be too late for Thornton Fractional to win a South Suburban Blue Conference title, but it still isn't taking any games lightly. T.F. United dominated Oak Forest 9-0 in a South Suburban Blue match Thursday. Ray Kobus and Luis Ramirez each scored two goals, and Cristian Gonzalez had a goal and an assist. Jose Sandoval recorded three assists as Thornton Fractional used seven first-half goals to quickly topple the Bengals and force the slaughter rule with a 20-minute second half. "There was a lot of passing and two-touch soccer," Kobus said of the win. "Very unselfish. We played our game today and came out with a good result." Ramirez, a junior, said the team is still a work in progress that has put their 5-15-1 record of 2012 behind them and is playing at another level this year. "We're working and doing good this season," Ramirez said. "Last year we did terrible, honestly. But the bad thing is that these seniors are going to leave, but still we have a good team this year." With a 6-3 record in the South Suburban Blue, the United is preparing for the playoffs and what it hopes will be a deep run. "Our first goal was winning conference or even sharing the title," Kobus said. "Now, we're focusing with our practices for preparing for regionals. We're looking forward to trying to get a regional championship." Kobus, a senior leader on the United, is looking for good practices before the playoffs to help lead the team into the postseason. "Definitely communicating and just keep playing our game," he said. "Finishing and listen to what we do in practice. How we practice is how we play."

THORNTON FRACTIONAL SOUTH VS EISENHOWER IN FOOTBALL BY JOHN SMIERCIAK

  • LANSING | T.F. South coach Tom Padjen isn't one to give big speeches, especially a Knute Rockne-like speech. The veteran coach motivated his team at halftime by telling a story from the 1997 season. "We were at Eisenhower and our quarterback (his son Mark), was tackled near the Eisenhower sideline and a coach yelled, 'Take his legs out,'" Tom Padjen said. Mark Padjen, who was at Friday's game, recalled after the game: "I got in his face and said 'I am indestructible.'" The "indestructible" speech motivated the Rebels as they shut down Eisenhower in the second half for a 17-7 South Suburban Conference crossover win on Friday. Senior Jariel Brooks said the players took the speech to heart. "We were indestructible in the second half and we had to get it together," Brooks said. "This was like a playoff game for us because we have to win the rest of our games if we are going to make the playoffs. We had to step it up." With their backs to the wall and a homecoming crowd behind them, South (3-3) shut out the Cardinals (4-2) in the second half. South has not been over .500 this year.

MARIAN CATHOLIC VS MUNSTER IN VOLLEYBALL BY JOHN SMIERCIAK

  • MUNSTER | Shayley Summers took a bottle near the end of the fourth game and got a fresh diaper in the middle of an intense fifth. The three-month-old daughter of Tracy and Ryan Summers had no idea what was going on just a few yards away from her fourth-row seat Wednesday night at Munster Fieldhouse, but one day she’ll hear tell of it. Her parents staged an epic volleyball match that ended with Tracy’s Munster squad beating Ryan's Marian Catholic team 25-21, 25-20, 24-26, 16-25, 15-7 in a matchup of Times No. 1 teams on opposite sides of the border. Tracy improved to 2-1 all-time against Ryan in their careers as head coaches. "It's exciting, because we both know so many players on both sides of the net," Tracy Summers said. "It's fun to try to guess what he’s thinking and see what strategies he uses. Other than that, it's a great opportunity for us to play a great team." There were no side wagers between the new parents, but Ryan expected dish duty as they exited the gym. "We didn’t say it, but it's kind of understood who's doing the dishes," Ryan said. "But in the end, Shayley wore a Marian ‘M’ on her shirt and not a Munster ‘M’ so I’ll take that." The unbeaten Mustangs (12-0) ran to a 2-0 lead after winning a pair of games that were tied late. Marian (2-6), however, held close in a third game that was tied nine times. The Spartans scored the final three points of that game to win 26-24 and then dominated the fourth set 25-16. "We get so focused the first two games and then back off a lot for some reason and don’t stay as focused," Munster hitter Antonia DalleCarbonare said. "Then we realized we need to step it up and won the last one." DalleCarbonare led the Mustangs with 15 kills and 27 digs, while Shannon Farrell added 13 kills and 18 digs and several mental assists.
