LISLE | This wasn't the way Homewood-Flossmoor wanted to finish things.

The Vikings fell 6-0 to Downers Grove South in the 3A Benedictine University Supersectional on Tuesday. The Mustangs scored three goals within the first 15 minutes of the match and the Vikings were never able to recover. Homewood-Flossmoor goalie Kim Boehm had a busy night in net and finished the match with 10 saves.

"Definitely on the balls in the air they were a million times better," Homewood-Flossmoor's Ali Farkos said. "If we would have been able to figure out that one element I think we would have given ourselves a much better game."

Downers Grove South used its size to dominate at the Vikings' end of the field. Two of the Mustangs first three goals were off of corner kicks, and Homewood-Flossmoor was unable to match the size of the Mustangs on balls in the air.

"They do a couple things phenomenally and that's throw-ins and corners," Viking coach Charlie Ward said. "They were super aggressive up top and we couldn't do anything to contain it. We made a great run. We have a great team that plays as a team."

Downers Grove South added three second-half goals, two of which came in the first six minutes of the second half. Homewood-Flossmoor struggled to find its own scoring chances and was unable to break through against the Downers Grove South defense. The loss was not the way the Vikings wanted to end the 2012 season, but the team made a strong run in the tournament in a year when many thought the team would be down.

"We were definitely the underdogs," Farkos said. "No one thought we were going to get this far, so it was really good to get all the way up here again. It's sad to see it end but it was a really great season and it's sad to see it go out this way."
