AT METAMORA: An early goal and a late flurry helped Notre Dame claim its fifth regional title in a row, 5-0 over the hosts.
Cody Gilfillan and Vince Cicciarelli each scored twice for the Irish (21-1-0), who will take a 19-game win streak into their sectional semi against Galesburg on Tuesday at 7:00 at Notre Dame.
Gilfillan’s first goal came just 4:40 into the match and gave the Notre Dame defense all it needed to secure the victory. His second goal, in the 48th minute, was followed by a pair from Cicciarelli (63rd, 75th) and one from Brett Lane (80th).
Chris Donner had 17 saves for Metamora (13-2-5).
