Kaneland’s ‘09 kicks ended by Crystal Lake Central

by Mike Slodki
A productive Kaneland soccer season launched the girls into their first ever regional championship match on Friday night.

Unfortunately, at the home of the Burlington Central Rockets, that’s where the launch ended.

Dealing with top-seeded Crystal Lake Central, the Lady Knights dropped a 3-0 result in a physical contest.

The loss, coming after a high-intensity 1-0 win over Hampshire last Tuesday, ended the Lady Knights’ 2009 campaign at an above-average 11-9-3.

That’s the best winning percentage in team history, eclipsing a 2005 squad that went 11-10-1.

That team, also coached by Scott Parillo, defeated Hinckley-Big Rock in a class A opening round matchup before losing to Wauconda in Hampshire.

The Tigers drew first blood with a shot over goalkeeper Sophie Blank’s head in just 6 minutes, 40 seconds into the match for a 1-0 lead.

The two teams stalemated until a header found its way in just 1:31 before halftime to make it a 2-0 margin.

Crystal Lake Central’s final score came with 36:52 left in the contest.

Parillo lauded the girls’ season despite the less-than-ideal end result.

“We really did well,” Parillo said. “We had freshmen and sophomores starting at different points. We’re young and this is going to leave a bad taste in their mouths. Crystal Lake Central did everything they needed to do to win, but this is the first time to a final for us and it was a good experience.”

Kaneland says goodbye to five seniors: Savanna Castillo, Brittany Chase, Bridget Crosby, Danni Garcia and Sarah Goodrich.

“We had pretty good leadership. Three were captains and it’s a shame to lose them, they were all good kids,” Parillo said.

Nine charged after party is broken up

Nine juveniles and adults were charged after Sugar Grove police, with assistance from the Kane County Sheriff’s Department, broke up a party shortly after midnight on Saturday.

Police were dispatched to a residence in the 300 block of Sutton Court in Sugar Grove. Upon arrival in the area, police located several minors who had been at the party, and some had consumed alcohol. Police then gained consent to enter the residence, where they located other minors that were hiding in closets or behind furniture.

In using portable breath testing equipment, police found that some of the offenders had breath alcohol concentrations as high as 0.16, twice the legal limit.

Charged under a local ordinance with consumption of alcohol by a minor:
David Lehman, 19, of the 1000 Block of Geneva Drive, Geneva; Andrew Liddell, 19, of the 2800 Block of Woodside Ct. Aurora; Dana Zimmer, 17, of the 600 Block of Carlisle Ct. Sugar Grove; Savanna Castillo, 17, of the 300 Block of Sutton Ct. Sugar Grove; Michael Naydenoff, 18, of the ON300 Block of Sulley Drive, Geneva.

Jasmeen Castillo, 24, Connie Castillo, 22, of the 300 Block of Sutton Ct. and Anthony Westbrook, 21, of Mooseheart, were all charged under local ordinance with contributing to the delinquency of a minor. Additionally, Connie Castillo was charged with obstructing justice.

Eric Castillo, of the 300 Block of Sutton Court, Sugar Grove, was charged under Illinois state statute with obstructing a peace officer, unlawful consumption of alcohol by a minor, and unlawfully permitting a minor to become intoxicated. Eric Castillo posted bond and was released with a court date of May 1, 2009 in the Aurora Branch Court.

Those charged under local ordinance will be charged fines ranging from $70 to $160.
