The No. 4 seeded Lions (16-2-3) have been on a winning streak this month. Tuesday marked the team's 10th consecutive win since their Sept. 28 loss against the No. 1 seed Red Devils, according to High School Cube News.
Hinsdale Central was undefeated heading into Tuesday's game, compiling a 20-0-2 record before the loss.
“All the credit to LT," Hinsdale Central coach Michael Wiggins said after the game. "I thought we did well to set the tone to start the game and got into good scoring positions. They handled us well in that first 15 minutes of the game and yet kept coming at us. I thought they were effective on the day.
"Congratulations to them and best of luck.”
The Lions got to the sectional semifinals by after a 3-0 win Saturday over No. 5 Downers Grove South in the quarterfinals. Hinsdale Central (19-0-3) reached the semis via a 4-0 quarterfinal win over Oak Park's Fenwick High School .
Last year, the No. 10 seed Fenwick High School upset No. 2 Lyons 2-1 in penalty kicks in the 3A Hinsdale South Regional final, according to High School Cube. The Hinsdale Central Red Devils had also upset the Lions with a win in the regular season. It was Hinsdale's first time beating the Lions since 2008.
The LT boys soccer team celebrated a major milestone for the program and for Lyons Township earlier this month, when the team defeated Argo 4-0 in their final regular season match and made Lyons Township High School history.
The win marked head coach Paul Labbato's 130th career win, making him the most successful varsity boys' soccer coach in the 47-year history of the program.
The Lions will play the winner of a 6:30 p.m. match between No. 3 Benet Academy and No. 2 Morton in the Hinsdale South Sectional final on Friday, Nov. 1.
