Girls Soccer

Stevenson 2, Warren 0: The third-ranked Patriots shut out their ninth consecutive opponent and, combined with Libertyville’s defeat of Lake Forest, clinched their first North Suburban Conference championship since 2016. SHS (16-1-2, 6-0) won its 11th consecutive game, and is one victory away from tying the school record set in 2007. Stevenson’s defense was stifling, limiting the Blue Devils (9-7-2, 2-2-1) to four shots on goal, all of which were stopped by goalie Jenny Staten, who recorded her 14th shutout of the season. The game was scoreless until Gracie Wingfield’s second-half goal broke the ice. Kalyssa VanZanten added an insurance goal, her team-leading 19th of the season, off an assist from Gabi Nyc. Stevenson, which has yet to yield a goal in conference play, will conclude its NSC schedule against Lake Forest Monday night in the Stadium. – NFHS Network Replay | Daily Herald
