For the first time ever, all teams are ranked coming into the weekend. The participants include #1 Chaminade and #4 CBC from the St Louis area. #6 Rockhurst from Kansas City and from Southwest Missouri #7 Kickapoo. The hosts Jefferson City Jays jumped into the Top Ten with this weeks poll at #9 and rounding out the tournament is Blue Valley Northwest, the top ranked team in Kansas in all classes and #1 in class 6. It should make for an exciting weekend of high school soccer.
Of particular interest is the faceoff between the two #1 teams on Saturday morning as BVNW faces Chaminade. The State Final Four includes one team from Central & Southwest Missouri and thus the Jeff City vs Kickapoo match that closes the tournament could well be a precursor of the Quarterfinal match for that region.
#1 Chaminade wins 3-0 over #9 Jeff City, goals by Tommy Barlow, Stoll and Jason Pesek
#7 Kickapoo defeats #6 Rockhurst 2-1
#4 CBC vs #1 BVNW (KS)
#1 BVNW (KS) vs #1 Chaminade finished tied 1-1
#4 CBC vs #6 Rockhurst was a 2-1 win for the Cadets
#9 Jeff City vs #7 Kickapoo saw the hosts fall 0-1 to the Chiefs, a PK the difference today
