Mill Valley finishes third in state soccer playoffs

November 15, 2006

For the first time since 2002, the name of the state champion won't begin with an "H."

Holton or Hayden has won the state title each of the last three years -- Holton in 2003 and 2005 and Hayden 2004.

After Holton's 28-12 loss to Paola on Friday, however, both teams are out of this year's Class 4A playoffs. Hayden lost the previous week to Rose Hill, which rocked the Wildcats, 42-13. On Friday, Rose Hill fell to Andale, 49-14.

Other scores from Friday's 4A playoff action included: Girard 21, Eudora 14 and Ulysses 54, Andover Central 7.

This Friday, Paola (11-1) will play at Girard (10-2) and Andale (12-0) will play at Ulysses (11-1) in the state semifinals. The winners of those games will meet Nov. 25 in the state championship. Although the site has not been announced, the teams will play in the title game in Topeka, Salina, Emporia or Hutchinson.
