Prep soccer playoffs this week

Michaela Parker of Blue Ridge (left) and Chino Valley’s Tayler Elsea go head-to-head in a race to the ball during the Yellow Jackets’ 1-0 win on Tuesday, Oct. 22.

The Blue Ridge girls soccer team won its final three games, including over No. 2 Chino, 1-0, on Tuesday, Oct. 22, and clinched the 2A East Region championship and with that, an automatic state tournament berth.

The Lady Jackets, along with top-ranked and unbeaten Flagstaff Northland Prep, will await the results of today’s play-in tournament matches and will take on the winners in the state playoff semifinals at Gilbert Williams Field High School at either 5 or 7 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 1.

In tonight’s play-in matches, No. 4 Show Low will play host to No. 5 St Johns at 6 p.m., and No. 2 Chino Valley plays host to No. 6 Camp Verde at 6.

A Chino Valley win would likely mean a rematch with Blue Ridge in one of Friday’s semifinals.

Friday’s winners move on to the state championship at 6:30 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 2 at WFHS.
