The Marshfield Blue Jays soccer team heads into district play today, at Hillcrest, as the #3 Seed even though we have the best record in the District.  The 4 team district is seeded like this:

#1              Bolivar  (10-10)

#2              Willard  (8-13)

#3              Marshfield (13-9-1)

#4              Hillcrest  (1-21)

Bolivar gets the top seed largly due to a 1-0 victory over our Jays on September 29th.  Two days later the Liberators beat Willard by the same score 1-0.

Marshfield and Willard have not faced each other this year but have at least 5 common opponents.

Willard beat Republic twice 2-1 and 1-0, we lost to Republic 3-1.

Willard beat Greenwood 2-1, we lost to Greenwood 2-1.

Willard beat Monett 3-1, we lost to Monett 3-1

We both beat Rogersville with the same score of 2-1,

We both beat Hillcrest with the same score 10-0.

This explains why Willard is the #2 Seed.  In this case the seed doesn’t matter as 2 and 3 face each other in the first round anyway.


Today #1 seed Bolivar will play #4 seed Hillcrest at 4:30.

(Hillcrest’s only win of the season was on August 27th vs Rogersville 1-0.)

Marshfield and Willard play at 6:30.

As you can see this should be a very competitive District with just a single goal seperation between the top 3 teams.
