Vikings Not Thinking about History


Schwarz, Orrin, Daily Herald (Arlington Heights, IL)


Byline: Orrin Schwarz Daily Herald Sports Writer

At this point of the season, no one's worried about ancient history.

So Geneva isn't thinking about the Vikings' 2-0 victory against Wheaton Academy on April 8 on a rain-soaked Burgess Field. The Vikings are just worried about Tuesday's Class A St. Ignatius sectional final at the University of Illinois-Chicago.

Though the Vikings had difficulty putting St. Francis in their history book, they impressed the Spartans.

"They were just an excellent team, they're a superior team, and they played like it today," said St. Francis coach Tim Dailey, after his Spartans lost Saturday to Geneva 1-0 in double overtime, "and we were very pleased we could stay with them as long as we did."

"I would have to say they were the best competition we've had," Spartans junior Meghan Boler said. "Benet was good competition, but Geneva was definitely a step up from teams that we've played. They move the ball extremely well. Defensively, I think we did a very good job keeping them to the outside."

If Wheaton Academy coach Peter Roman saw any holes in the Geneva armor, he wasn't saying.

"We know they're not going to make too many mistakes," Roman said. "They're very, very disciplined, like we are. They're going to play the whole 80 (minutes).

"It'll be a fun game."

St. Ignatius coach Aaron Carpenter, whose team lost to Wheaton Academy 2-0 on Saturday, says Geneva will face a team that's "very explosive, very good in the air," one that plays a brand of power soccer like that seen in the English Premier League.
