While teams throughout Missouri were getting their season started on Friday, the earliest possible day allowed, this week will see an uptick in activity while Illinois enters their second week of play. Here’s a preview of what can be seen in Girls High School soccer this week!
Of particular note are a pair of games that Rockwood Summit will play this week, first hosting IL Class 3A finalists Collinsville on Tuesday and then traveling to MO Class 4 Finalists St. Josephs on Friday.
While Summit (District 3) will be testing themselves against top large school programs, a pair of District 4 programs will face off in an early season game with District seeding implications. On Friday Westminster, featuring D1 signees Kirsten Davis (Texas Tech) and Sydney Walker (SLU) will host Visitation and their D1 signees Kayleight Stahlschmidt (Northwestern) and Brynne Polivka (Mizzou). The four are also teammates at SLSG ECNL.
On the Illinois side, Collinsville will travel to Edwardsville Thursday in addition to their Tuesday match at Summit. The Kahok’s were surprised in their opening game last week, losing to Glenwood Chatham. They’ll face an Edwardsville team that deserved to win the Metro Cup trophy but lost in sudden death PK’s. This game finished in a 1-1 tie last year and could determine the Southwest Conference championship in the second week. Must see!
Lutheran St. Charles and the Zumwalt Classic which has usually gotten my early season attention, for good reason. So many good games, so little time. Details below!
All of these games and others can be found on my St. Louis Soccer calendar. Bookmark the page for Club, College and High School games of interest. It’s also now embedded on my website in the right sidebar. Want to be included? email me – Ole at SoccerSTL.net
