Soccer Sectional Drawings Unveiled

By Herald Staff

The Indiana High School Athletic Association unveiled the soccer sectional drawings on Sunday, and local teams now know some things that hold for them once the regular season ends.

On the girls side, Southridge, Forest Park and Northeast Dubois all play in Sectional 48 at South Spencer. The Raiders have a bye into the semifinals, while the defending champion Class 1A-No. 3 Rangers and also the No. 8 Jeeps are on the same bracket, meaning they play each other in the semifinals and potentially the Raiders in the championship for an All-Dubois County final.

G1. North Posey vs. Tell City

G2. Northeast Dubois vs. Evansville Day

G3. Forest Park vs. South Spencer

G4. Southridge vs. North Posey/Tell City

Jasper will look to win another sectional championship this year, and the Wildcats only need to win two games to do so. They have a bye into the semifinals against Washington, and will be the host of Sectional 30. Jasper could make it four sectional championships in the last five years and third straight overall.

G1. Pike Central vs. Princeton

G2. Jasper vs. Washington

G3. Vincennes Lincoln vs. Pike Central/Princeton

G2. Heritage Hills vs. Mt. Vernon

G3. Evansville Bosse vs. Evansville Memorial

G4. Gibson Southern vs. Evansville Mater Dei/Boonville

G5. Heritage Hills/Mt. Vernon vs. Evansville Bosse/Evansville Memorial

Over on the boys side, Forest Park will host Sectional 48, and there could be an All-Dubois County championship with the Class 1A-No. 7 Rangers and No. 18 Northeast Dubois on the opposite side of the bracket. The Jeeps will play South Spencer in their opening game, while the Rangers are set to take on Wood Memorial.

G1. North Posey vs. Evansville Day

G5. Championship, Oct. 9, 2 p.m.Heritage Hills has a bye to the semifinals in Sectional 32 at Mt. Vernon. The Class 2A-No. 8 Patriots will have to take care of business against Evansville Mater Dei, and if they do so, would await either Boonville, Evansville Bosse or the host Wildcats.

G1. Boonville vs. Evansville Bosse

G2. Heritage Hills vs. Evansville Mater Dei

G3. Mt. Vernon vs. Boonville/Evansville Bosse

G4. Championship

Jasper will be in Sectional 16 at Evansville Memorial, and the Wildcats will have an opportunity at retribution right away by playing the Castle team that eliminated them last year. But for Jasper to get out of the sectional, it must not only eliminate the reigning Class 3A state runner-up, No. 3. Knights in the first game, but No. 13 Memorial, last year’s state champion in Class 2A, must fall as well.

G1. Evansville Memorial vs. Evansville North

G2. Evansville Harrison vs. Evansville Reitz

G3. Jasper vs. Castle

G4. Evansville Central vs. Evansville Memorial/Evansville North

G5. Jasper/Castle vs. Evansville Harrison/Evansville Reitz
