WMBD/WYZZ-TV - PEORIA, Ill. -- Tuesday night's sectional games in the Peoria area might feature a pair of teams that could be considered dark horses.
Limestone (Class 3A) and Normal West (4A) have had great seasons. But both had to go through formidable foes to win regional titles Friday.
The Rockets beat third-ranked Washington, which went unbeaten through the Mid-Illini Conference schedule and was considered a favorite to represent the Peoria area at state. Limestone plays Mendota in the Peoria sectional semifinal at 7:30 p.m.
In Friday's 4A regional at West, the home team knocked off red hot Normal Community, which had a 20-game win streak. The Wildcats play Rock Island in the Pekin sectional Tuesday at 7:30 p.m.
