With a win Friday, the team advances to the state championship game on Saturday versus the winner of the Oak Park-River Forest/Barrington game at 5:30pm at the same facility. A consolation game will be held at 3pm. 

Tickets are $6 per person per game and will be sold at the gate. All games this weekend can be streamed online for a fee.
