Defense denies Loyola in boys water polo semifinals
A strong defensive effort and Jack Fay's goal with 1:21 left in the 4th quarter sparked Evanston's boys water polo squad to a taut 6-5 victory in the IHSA sectional semifinals on Friday at Loyola Academy.
After a turnover, the Ramblers had possession with 6 seconds remaining but the ETHS defense didn't let the losers get a shot off.
Evanston was led by Ben Suhs with 3 goals and Patrick Hughes with 2. The Wildkits face the No. 1 seed, New Trier, on Saturday to decide the sectional championship.
