Girls water polo
Junior goalie Allie Schroeder and her Lyons Township High School girls water polo teammates had a long gap between the end of their second match and start of their third at Fenwick’s Mike Murphy Tournament on April 2.
“We had a five-hour break so we all took naps in a classroom,” Schroeder said.
The Lions needed all of the energy possible for their finale against fellow state power New Trier. They never led but battled for a 7-7 tie to finish 3-0-1 in the two-day, five-team, round-robin division format.
LTHS (13-1-1) defeated Loyola Academy 12-4 and Mother McAuley 14-5 and Fremd 13-3 during the tourney.
“We were hoping for a better outcome [against New Trier] but we fought pretty hard,” Schroeder said. “This whole tournament has been a good experience, a lot of game play.”
The Lions trailed New Trier 2-0 after one period and 6-5 after three. LTHS freshman Maya Mladjan’s second goal of the fourth period with 1:04 left created the 7-7 deadlock.
With 37 seconds to go, New Trier called a timeout with possession and a full 30-seocnd shot clock, but Schroeder made her 13th save with 12 seconds. LTHS junior Emilia Mladjan’s long-range shot went wide left as time expired.
Maya Mladjan (4 goals), Emilia Mladjan (2 goals, 3 assists, 2 steals, 2 blocks), senior Novalee Roberto (goal, 2 assists) and juniors Evie Reinisch (assist, 3 steals) and Ava Wright (assist) accounted for the scoring.
New Trier also was 3-0-1 at the tournament, but the Lions won the division based on fewer overall goals allowed (19 to 23).
On the season, LTHS stat leaders include Emilia Mladjan (57 goals, 50 steals), Maya Mladjan (46 goals), Roberto (44 goals, 45 assists), Reinisch (13 kick-outs) and Schroeder (115 saves).
