Boys, girls soccer teams face off in sectionals this week

TERRE HAUTE — Soccer takes the center stage of high school sports this week throughout Indiana, with sectionals for both girls and boys starting today.

In the Wabash Valley, there are Class 2A tournaments at Terre Haute South (girls) and Terre Haute North (boys), while Class A sectionals will be played at West Vigo (boys), Sullivan (girls) and North Knox (boys).

Best records among Valley teams belong to Terre Haute North’s girls and Sullivan’s boys. Both those teams are defending sectional champions, and both will have to win on the road — the Patriots on South’s field, the Golden Arrows at North Knox.

North’s girls have the longest route to another championship, starting Tuesday against Vincennes Lincoln.

A Patriot win would create a rematch with the host Braves — North won 4-0 on its own field in the regular-season match — while Northview sits in a good position in the opposite bracket with an Owen Valley team that’s only won once.

The Class 2A boys sectional looks to be wide-open. Defending champion Vincennes Lincoln, which plays tonight at North against Owen Valley, was hit hard by graduation, and the North-South game came down to a Patriot penalty kick in a 1-0 decision.

Class A boys tournaments are four-team affairs that start with Wednesday doubleheaders. Sullivan looks like the favorite to repeat at North Knox, while Wednesday’s opener between Covington and the host Vikings is a rematch of last season’s championship match there.

Class A girls, on the other hand, have a week-long seven-team sectional at Sullivan, starting tonight with South Knox taking on Pike Central.

The Golden Arrows may not be the powerhouse that they’ve been in recent seasons, but their know-how and schedule strength would seem to make them the favorites again.
