On The Ball

High school soccer’s ridiculously short season—the Journal Star says it’s 3 months long, but it’s actually just two—starts up today. This morning’s LJS features city soccer capsules. On the boys side, East and Southwest are surely the favorites for the City championship again this year. Pius X is in a position to make a strong run in Class B.

As for the girls, Southeast returns a whopping 10 starters from last year’s State runner-up team, including five D1 recruits. That’ll be a handful for the rest of LPS. Interestingly, three schools have new girls coaches this year (Northeast, North Star, Southwest). That’s a pretty sizable shakeup.

As always, there’s a limit to what I can say about all of this since I’m a referee, so I’ll stop there. Best of luck to everybody this spring!

EDIT: Here are schedules for every team in the state. Class A boys | Class B boys | Class A girls | Class B girls.

Where can one find a schedule of where/when these teams will be playing?

Good question. I have updated the post.
