In Bracket B, FAB 50 No. 3 Bradley-Bourbonnais (Ill.) survived a scare by winning in penalty kicks over regionally ranked Washburn Rural (Kan.) following a 2-2 match. Bradley-Bourbonnais' win sets up a FAB 50 Top 10 clash Friday against Whitefish Bay (Wis.), a 4-0 winner over Quincy (Ill.). In the other half of the draw, Hinsdale Central (Ill.) defeated Green Valley (Nev.) 4-0 and Rockhurst Jesuit (Mo.) handled Collinsville (Ill.).
