NP Soccer Wins District Semifinal, Set for Title Game

The North Platte Bulldog soccer teams both earned first-round wins in their districts and have now set themselves up for a District Title Wednesday and Thursday.

Monday, the top-seeded Lady Bulldogs dominated Fremont 8-0 to move in to the District Title. They’ll face #2 Lincoln Pius X tonight (Wednesday) for the A-6 District Championship and a chance at state. The last time the Lady Bulldogs qualified for State Soccer was in 2012, with a history of seven qualifications. These two teams have not met up yet this season. The match will begin at 7 CT at North Platte High.

Tuesday, the North Platte boy’s soccer team continued the success, knocking off #4 Norfolk 1-0. It was the third win against Norfolk this season, all being close wins. On the other side of A-7 District, #2 Lincoln North Star beat Papillion-La Vista 3-1 to advance to the District Title. That game will be played Thursday at 7 CT at North Platte High. This will be the second meeting between them, as North Platte beat North Star on April 21st at the Kearney Double Triangular 4-2. The Bulldog boys are looking for their 5th state qualification, with their most recent coming in 2016.
