Neuqua Valley and Naperville North go back and forth in the first half

After an early Neuqua goal, Junior attacker Cary George does it all himself here as he spins a defender and gets his shot off that finds the net—making it 2-0 Wildcats in the first few minutes of the game.

Naperville North would tie it up here as Mattix Groves sling the ball into the back of the net. The game is level at 2-2 after the first quarter. 

The second quarter would begin in North’s favor as Luke Chionis scores to put Naperville North ahead 4-2. 

Yet, the Wildcats would answer back as circles around the goal weaving through two Huskie defenders and scoring through the contact to tie the game up at 4-4.
