The Knights rolled through their home regional, beating Wheaton Academy, 10-0, and Aurora Central Catholic, 8-4, behind an Angel Acevedo grand slam.
“Burlington Central is a good team, but we feel like we’ve been playing pretty good ball of late too,” said coach Brian Aversa, whose Knights have won eight of their last nine, including their past six. “Our guys have been taking a business-like approach to the game, and that’s the way they’re approaching this next game.”
Aversa said he’s not sure who will start Wednesday – other than it not being Alex Buchanan, who’s over the pitch count limit after his performance in relief of Robbie Dudzinski on Saturday.
Dudzinski, Angel Acevedo and Nik Panico are all among the potential starters for the Knights.
