The Third and Fourth District Soccer Tournaments continue tonight with three champions expected to be crowned.
In the Third District at the Stadium of Champions, the girls title game between Hopkinsville and University Heights will be played at 5:30pm. Hopkinsville (15-3-1) is the defending district and region champion, having beaten UHA (11-3-3) 5-1 in their only meeting Sept. 23.
The boys title game is at 7:30 and pits crosstown rivals Hopkinsville (14-1-6) and Christian County (11-11). Hoptown won the only regular season meeting 11-1 on Sept. 9. The Tigers are looking for their first district title since 2007. Christian County has never won a boys soccer district title, although they lost to Hoptown in three straight district title games from 2003-05.
In the Fourth District, the girls title game will be played tonight at 5:30pm as Caldwell County (16-2-1) looks to defend their district title against Trigg County (8-10-1) at the Complex.
Caldwell County won the only regular season matchup 6-3 on Aug. 26 and have won all 12 career meetings with the Lady Wildcats.
The Fourth District Boys Tournament officially gets underway tonight at Tradewater Park in Dawson Springs. The tournament began Tuesday but was postponed to tonight because of lightning.
Trigg County takes an 18-0-1 mark into the 6pm game with the host Panthers (4-13-1). Despite finishing the season unbeaten with a school record 18 wins, it wasn't good enough to be included in the state soccer rankings or even receive consideration.
Trigg won both regular season games by a combined score of 15-0.
The other semifinal has Caldwell County (6-11-2) playing Lyon County (9-6-3) at 8pm. Each team beat the other during the season by identical 4-3 scores.
The championship game will be Friday at 5:30pm. The winner of the district tournament will host the region tournament next week.
