WHS soccer looks to advance
The Boomer soccer team puts a 6-match winning streak on the line tonight against Dove Science Academy in the Class 4A playoffs.
Kickoff is 6:30 p.m. at Boomer Stadium.
This is a rematch of a first-round game last year won 5-4 in overtime by Dove Science.
Woodward is looking to reverse that outcome this year and is coming off perhaps its most impressive night of the season in last week’s 6-1 rout of the Weatherford Eagles to win the district crown.
Dove Science advanced with a 3-1 win over Classen in last Friday’s preliminary round game. Dove Science finished second in its district to Santa Fe South, losing in a shootout.
The Boomers have outscored their opponents 33-3 over the last 6 matches.
The winner will face Santa Fe South or Clinton in the quarterfinals. Clinton scored a 2-1 upset at Madill last week.
Weatherford also advanced in the preliminary round with a 3-1 decision over Newcastle and will face Southeast tonight.
