North Stars beat St. Francis 5-1 for their 17th straight regional championship
WHEATON – CeCe Wahlberg emerged from a midfield collision appearing slightly gimpy about seven minutes into Friday's Class 3A St. Francis Regional final.
The senior midfielder is no stranger to heavy defensive contact. Wahlberg often finesses through droves of defenders. Yet, it was apparent that physicality and aggressiveness would play key factors between the talent-laden St. Charles North and St. Francis teams.
