(HILLSBORO) The historic Hillsboro Hawks boys soccer team is facing Webster Groves today at noon in the Class 3 State Quarterfinals at Hillsboro High School on the MY MO INFO SPORTS STREAM.
The season is historic for the Hawks because no team before this one has ever advanced this far in the playoffs. Hillsboro got to this point after a 3-1 victory over North County in the Sectional round on Wednesday.
Hawks Head Coach Chris Schacht says that if they can control the pace of the game through the midfield again today, they’ll have a good chance of surviving and advancing to the semifinals.
Webster Groves was able to slip past Ladue 2-1 on Thursday in the Class 3 Sectional round. Coach Schacht was able to get there to witness the game and had only positive things to say about them.
Webster Groves enters this quarterfinal match with a 19-6 record while Hillsboro enters with a 19-5-1 record. Webster Groves was runner-up at state last year while Hillsboro failed to reach Sectionals. Kickoff from Hillsboro High School is today at noon on the MY MO INFO SPORTS STREAM. Pregame begins at 11:45.
