Tuesday is doomsday for Vikings
Season ends abruptly with pair of losses
After winning rather handily last Monday, the prospects for St. Laurence’s continued advancement in the Phil Lawler Classic state tournament were good.
On Tuesday, however, Prospect was better.
Having been victimized by the Vikings in that Monday encounter, the Knights gained revenge at a most opportune moment. By virtue of a 4-2 triumph over St. Laurence at Benedictine University in Lisle, Prospect not only extended its own tourney stay but abruptly halted the Vikings’.
The Lawler Classic is a double-elimination affair, but St. Laurence couldn’t afford another setback after having fallen short against Nazareth Academy — also by a 4-2 count — in an earlier Tuesday matchup. Thus, the Vikings concluded their summer campaign with a 15-4 mark.
