The Chatham Glenwood Titans (19-4-2) ended the Morton Potters (19-5-1) postseason run with a 3-0 victory in the IHSA Class 2A Springfield Supersectional. A tightly-contested affair in the midfield, the game was ultimately decided in front of the Morton goal, where the Titans converted three crosses into three unanswered goals and, as a result, the program’s fifth trip to the state finals. The Titan goals were scored by Brendel Marshall, Kayla Torry and Abby Juhlin. Chatham’s senior goal keeper Cara Moody was stellar in between the pipes shutting down Morton. Next up for the Titans is a state semifinal match at 1 p.m. Friday against Normal University High (17-5-1) at North Central College in Naperville.
