SCHAUMBURG - It wasn't pretty but in the end, all that mattered for Glenbard North's softball team was a win.

Jumping out to a 7-1 lead, the Panthers held on for a 7-4 win over DuPage Valley Conference foe Wheaton North in a Schaumburg Class 4A regional semifinal.

The Falcons didn't go down without a fight, putting their first two runners on base in the top of the seventh. But Cece Dopart came on in relief and recorded three straight outs without letting in a run.

Glenbard North, which improved to 24-4 on the spring, will play either Elk Grove or the host Saxons in the regional final Saturday.
