This year it’s not hard to predict where the girls and boys programs will end up on Thursday, October 13, the date of first round matches in the Section 6AA playoffs. Both teams will likely be the number two seed and will play the seventh-seeded 6AA team at Washburn Stadium.
It’s Senior Day at the stadium as we honor our graduating seniors and their families. The day is also full of matches against the Mounds View Mustangs, with varsity at 2:00 at the stadium, JV at noon, and 9B traveling to Mounds View. Plus, B Squad and 9A battle it out at the ‘burn.
Eight matches over the next six days, ending with Saturday’s varsity match against Mounds View on Senior Recognition Day. In between are four huge city conference matches against Minneapolis South as well as 9B’s match against Hastings on Tuesday.
If you could invest in the alphabet, go all in with the letter S this week. As in Southwest, South, Sylvester Cup, and Super Soccer Saturday. Four teams in action with a total of 10 matches, culminating in the annual soccer shindig at Washburn known among soccer mathematicians as S3.
