Local teams ready for soccer district matchups today

Just a quick reminder that the district soccer playoffs take place today, with three local squads in action. Here is a quick look at the schedule:

Mount Tahoma vs. Enumclaw, 11 a.m., Highline Memorial Stadium: The Thunderbirds are making their first district playoff appearance in at least nine years (from the records that I could find), and will look to use a late surge to make a run to state.

Stadium vs. Emerald Ridge, 12 p.m., Mount Tahoma Stadium: The Tigers will certainly look for revenge after the Jaguars knocked them out of district last year with a 2-0 win. Stadium will rely on its talented trio of Jacob Beardemphl, Max Harvey and Andrew Foreman.

Wilson vs. Auburn Mountainview, 6 p.m., Auburn Memorial Stadium: The Rams battled to a 3-3 draw against Shelton on Tuesday to earn the Narrows 3A top seed, and will look to get past districts after suffering tough late losses the past two years.

Look for blog recaps of the Mount Tahoma and Wilson matchups here later tonight!
