Monday night was a big night in girls’ soccer, as two area squads looked to punch their ticket to state in Pella.
The first game of the doubleheader was the Class 1A Region 6 title game, where Bondurant-Farrar shut out Fairfield 3-0 to qualify for state. Bondurant-Farrar is 10-11 on the season, and with the low winning percentage draws the #1 team in Nevada, who is 17-1 this year. That quarterfinal game is Thursday at 12:45 PM at the Cownie Soccer Park in Des Moines on Field 9.
In the nightcap, the host Lady Dutch held off a feisty Indianola team to win 2-0 and get to the state tournament. Pella is 12-3, and will play conference foe Dallas Center-Grimes in the quarterfinals on Thursday on Field 9, with the first kick scheduled for 3:15 PM. DCG and Pella met once during the regular season, with the Fillies pulling out the thrilling win on their home field 1-0 on May 27th. That served as Pella’s final regular season game.
