D-C goes to shootout, stops Crystal Lake South

Sebastian Falinski hopes other area teams notice what his Dundee-Crown girls soccer team accomplished Thursday.

Unfazed by a tying goal from Crystal Lake South’s Bree Marshall with less than 25 minutes to play on South’s home field, the Chargers withstood two overtime periods to win in a shootout, 2-1.

“I hope it’s kind of a wake-up call,” Falinski said. “We’re always seen as an easy win, so maybe this will scare teams a little bit.”
