Boys soccer: Dundee-Crown dumps Jacobs to claim FVC crown
To say that Tuesday's Dundee-Crown vs. Jacobs boys soccer match had everything would truly be an understatement.
Because in actuality, it was a Fox Valley Conference championship for the ages.
With more twists and turns than a Six Flags roller coaster and a relentless rain that certainly had its influence on both teams, Chargers reserve Daniel Perez denied Jacobs a late comeback and provided D-C an undefeated FVC championship with his game-winning goal in the 75th minute for a 4-3 win over the defending champs in rain-soaked Algonquin.
Not only did D-C stay undefeated at 17-0-2, but the top-seed in the upcoming Class 3A Streamwood sectional gained some major momentum for the postseason after knocking off the reigning champs by going 8-0 in the FVC while also taking home Hononegah's Indian Cup to boot.
"It couldn't have been any better than this, it really couldn't have been," D-C coach Rey Vargas said. "Rivals and everything on the line for us in the sense of the rivalry that's going; it was just a great game. Sloppy but great."
