The St Louis Soccer Classic returns, to both St. Louis and St. Joseph Academy.
UPDATE – FRIDAY schedule changed (see below) due to water-logged fields, moved to DeSmet and Ft. Zumwalt East. The plan is to play Saturday at St. Joseph Academy. My St. Louis Soccer calender is updated and includes a Map link
Three quality out-of-town guests are included this year – Nixa Eagles, and regular participants Shawnee Mission East and Blue Valley Northwest. I’ll pull together some details on them before games begin Friday so come back for those updates as well.
Blue Valley Northwest (or BVNW) swept through the Classic last year, finishing as Champions of the Green Division including the remarkable 4-0 spanking they gave the hosts. It was the only loss St. Joe had as they went on to win the Class 3 title last year. No replay this year though as they are in different Divisions. The team is the two-time defending 6A Kansas Champion, beating Maize 6-0 in the final. I’ll have player info soon.
After winning the MO-KAN soccer tournament, girls varsity soccer is ranked #5 in the nation and #1 in Kansas: http:// http://t.co/dP7H7dL1tf

h/t to @BNVWnews for assembling this material
Shawnee Mission East had an 0-2-1 finish last year with their draw coming against Cor Jesu who finished 2-0-1.
Local team thoughts… Nerinx won all three matches, via shutout, last year to finish top of the White Division. Lafayette also went undefeated but gave up 2 while scoring 6 to finish just behind the Markers.
