Lady Vikes headed to state semifinals after early lead holds up for 2-1 victory over Barrington.
The Barrington Fillies soccer team suffered a tough loss to the Fremd Lady Vikings, losing 2-1 in the Super-Sectional match.

The shot was just out of the reach of Barrington’s goalkeeper Kelly Pedersen but enough to give the Bears a 1-0 lead. “Anytime we can put the ball in the back of the net and gain that momentum, we …
