As the 3A girls ‘soccer season came to an end in the past few weeks, a big question was whether the Ogden and Morgan girls’ soccer teams would clash in the postseason, whether it might be in the semi-finals or in the final.
The answer: a potential finale. Morgan earned number 1 in the upcoming 3A state tournament, the bracket of which was released on Wednesday morning.
Ogden is seed # 3, on an opposite side of the mount from Morgan. Both teams have first round bye tickets and will host a second round match on Wednesday October 13th.
Should both get that far, MHS and OHS could play against each other in the state championship game at Rio Tinto Stadium on Saturday, October 23rd.
It’s a place that both programs are familiar with. Morgan is the reigning 3A national champion and has won three of the 3A trophies in the past four years. Ogden is the defending 4A runner-up and the 4A state champion of 2019.
The No. 2 seeded Canyon View (Cedar City, Region 12 Champion), the No. 4 RSL Academy (Region 15 Champion) and the No. 7 Judge Memorial, who advanced for the state title in Game 3, are also expected to compete for the title are the last four seasons.
Another area team that deserves a bye in the first round is Ben Lomond, who is number 10. The Scots will be born on October 13th at No. 7 Judge Memorial on the way.
Layton Christian is number 20 and is playing in the first round this Saturday in Grantsville.
There was one more question from Tuesday that was answered on Wednesday.
Ogden and Morgan will actually share the Region 13 girls’ soccer championship by splitting the season streak against each other, confirmed OHS Sporting Director Scott Yetter.
Following Morgan’s 3-2 win over Ogden on Tuesday, it was unclear what exactly would happen to the region title, as OHS had a 9-1 region record and MHS had an 8-1 record as Layton Christian was out of competition in September (MHS beat LCA 6-0 on Monday at the first meeting of the year).
