High school soccer playoff preview: Rocky Mountain at Legacy

By


Time: 1p.m. Saturday — Location: Legacy High School, North Stadium

INSIDE SCOOP: When the Rocky Mountain girls soccer team visits North Stadium on Saturday for its second-round Class 5A state playoff matchup with Legacy, it will complete a Lightning sandwich. In Rocky Mountain’s first game of the season, the Lightning topped the Lobos 2-1 on the strength of two Kelsey Killean goals. Rocky Mountain will certainly focus on Killean — Legacy’s leading scorer with 10 goals this season — in the rematch. The two squads come into their matchup under much different circumstances. Legacy finished off Adams City 3-0 on Wednesday, while Rocky Mountain put away high-scoring Grandview 2-1 on a direct kick in overtime. If pressure plays an active roll in round two, consider the Lobos ready.
