St. Charles East knows it faces a tough task in 35-1 Barrington in Friday's 4A state semifinal at the EastSide Centre in East Peoria.
The Fillies' lone defeat was a 3-2 loss to Marengo in the opener of a doubleheader.
Just under a month later, Burlington Central lost to Barrington by the same score in seven innings to close the regular season. BC had East on its schedule for a game over spring break, but that contest was canceled due to weather.
"We'll see how Friday plays out. Sometimes it's matchups," Central coach Wade Maisto said. "I'll be curious to see how that goes."
