The high school boys soccer match between North and St. Thomas Academy on Oct. 6 was expected to be high drama as the two teams appeared destined to meet with the Metro East Conference championship on the line.
The high school soccer regular season has entered its final week. Some teams are spending this week trying to win conference championships while others are using their final games as tune-ups for the post-season.
The football teams from North High School and Hill-Murray both went winless through the first three weeks of the regular season. Regardless of what happened in week four, one of the two will have a victory after week five.
After spending the first two weeks of the season on the road, the Hill-Murray football team plays its home opener this week. The Pioneers host Hastings on Friday at 7 p.m. but more important than the opponent is the venue.
There seems to be a renewed enthusiasm surrounding the boys soccer program at Hill-Murray. With a new coach in the fold and a new stadium soon to be up and running, the Pioneers have lots to look forward to in the near future.
