Willie, Yorkville's senior forward, had a brief scare when she collided with a Metea Valley girl on a header.
Willie remained down for a few minutes, but wasn't out long.
"I went up for a header and as soon as I turned and jumped straight up I got all ball and she misjudged and headed me in the top upper lip," said Willie, an Illinois recruit. "I knew I was bleeding. I went out, got it cleaned up, and went right back in."
Willie, and the Foxes had reason to keep their head up.
Yorkville, seeded 14th, gave second-seeded Metea Valley a strong run before coming up short 2-0 in the Class 3A Metea Valley Regional semifinal.
