WIAA boys soccer: WIAA regionals kick off today


The Manitowoc Lincoln, Kiel and Roncalli boys soccer teams will all be in action today as the WIAA soccer tournament begins regional play throughout the state.

The No. 6 seeded Ships (11-10-0) take on host No. 3 Oshkosh West (10-5-0) in Division 1, a team Lincoln hasn’t faced this season but both have faced common opponents. Both the Ships and Wildcats have lost to Sheboygan North while earning a win against Green Bay Southwest. As a No. 8 seed last season, Lincoln lost its playoff opener.

In Division 3, No. 7 Kiel (5-15-1) visits No. 2 New Holstein-Elkhart Lake (13-7-2) while No. 6 Roncalli (3-14-2) travels to No. 3 St. Mary Central (14-7-0) in Division 4.

The Raiders lost twice to the Huskies during the Eastern Wisconsin Conference season by scores of 2-0, and 6-0. Both teams were in Division 2 last season, dropping down one with the addition of a fourth division this season.

The Jets didn’t fare any better against the Zephyrs in Packerland Conference action, losing both meetings by identical 8-0 margins. This is a rematch of a playoff opener last year, which SMC, a No. 6 seed, edged the No. 11 Jets 4-3.
