The last time Waubonsie Valley faced Fremd was a pretty good night for the Warriors. Actually, "pretty good" doesn't come close to describing how they felt.
Powered by a hat trick from then-freshman Vanessa DiBernardo, the Warriors rolled to a 4-0 victory, claiming the first state team title in Waubonsie history.
The teams will go at it again in about five hours after the Vikings (9-1-1) held off St. Charles East for a 1-0 win in the second Naperville Invitational semifinal.
The Warriors (11-0-1) put their 43-game unbeaten streak (41-0-2) on the line in the final, which starts at 6 p.m. at Naperville Central.
Fremd reached the semifinals by winning a weather-ravaged Group C. The Vikings played only 18 minutes Friday night against Neuqua Valley before the game was halted by a storm. The match had already been rescheduled from Thursday when another storm ripped through the area.
The championship also gives Fremd coach Steve Keller a chance to gain some revenge against his alma mater. Keller graduated from Waubonsie in 1990.
