Region IV Playoffs (Quarterfinals)
Top-seeded Chiefs dominate Lake County, move on to Region IV Semi-Finals
Opponent: Lancers at Chiefs
5 - 1 (W)
The top-seeded Chiefs (16-1) jumped out to a big lead and cruised to a 5-1 victory over the College of Lake County in the quarterfinals of the Region IV Division I Tournament. Alberto Lopez netted his 17th goal of the season just 10 minutes into the game to get the Chiefs going. Three minutes later Diego Munoz scored his 10th goal of the season as Lopez and Victor Corral were both credited with an assist. Waubonsee grabbed a commanding 3-0 lead just six minutes later as Alvaro Perez found the back of the net with help from Munoz for his 11th assist on the year. The Lancers were able to break the shutout a few minutes later, but just a minute after that Bernie Conley booked his 11th goal of the season off a feed from Lopez at the 21:10 mark of the first half. The score remained 4-1 going into halftime and stayed that way until midway through the second half when Conley notched his second goal of the game with an assist from Perez. The Chiefs, who out shot the Lancers 21-9 for the game, had several more scoring opportunities in the final twenty minutes of the match only to misfire from point blank range. Meanwhile, Chiefs' keeper Luis Gallardo made several nice stops to keep the Lancers off the scoreboard in the second period on his way to recording eight saves.
