  • 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."

  • 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.

  • CALUMET CITY | T.F. South's Daviea Cowans and Cori Reynolds had never hit inside-the park homers. In fact, Reynolds had never hit a round-tripper until Monday, yet alone hit them in consecutive games. But Reynolds hit her second homer in her life and did it the hard way on Tuesday. Like Cowans, she had to hustle around the bases, and it was something she enjoyed. "I just kept running and there was no way I was going to stop," Reynolds said. "I was pretty mad when I came up to bat because I had struck out in the first inning. I just got a hold off a good pitch and drove it." The Rebels had little trouble with their District 215 rivals as they won the South Suburban Blue game 19-3 in five innings. All but two of T.F. South's runs were unearned.

  • LANSING | All season, the one thing that has hindered T.F. South's softball team more than the weather is giving the opponent a big inning, then coming up short. Monday was no exception as the Rebels let South Suburban Blue-leading Tinley Park have a five-run third inning in the Titans' 13-3 win. Tinley Park (11-3, 10-0) broke open a 1-0 game in the third, then added three runs in each of the fourth and fifth innings. "We let them have five or six outs in the third and when you let a team like Tiney have that many outs, they are going to take advantage of it," T.F. South coach Jamie Arundel said. "It's one or two bad innings that hurt us. I thought we hit the ball pretty well, but we also made a few (baserunning) mistakes."
