PEORIA – Vince Cicciarelli: You can’t stop him, you can only hope to contain him.
And for the majority of a Class 2A sectional title match Friday night, Morton’s double- and triple-teaming slowed the Notre Dame All-American.
But a bold move by Irish coach Mike Bare at the end of regulation broke the Potters’ defensive chains, and Cicciarelli found the golden goal in ND’s 2-1 overtime victory.
The victory propels Notre Dame (23-1-0) to the New Lenox Supersectional. On Tuesday night at Lincoln-Way West, the Irish will meet Lemont.
