The women are currently sitting in ninth position of the playoff standings and have nine points possible to earn from their final three matches @ Allen County (Mon.), v #1 Hutchinson (Wed.) and @ Pratt (Thu). The Lady Conquistadors will need some help this week if they are to make their second-straight appearance in the Region VI tournament. A loss versus Allen County or a Coffeyville win over Kansas City, Kansas means elimination for the Dodge City women.
With a 2-1 victory over Johnson County, Pratt allowed the idle Dodge City men to clinch a playoff spot. The men currently sit tied for fourth, but are actually fifth because of their head-to-head 4-3 loss to Johnson County. Scenario is simple, win out and the men finish 3 points clear of anyone else with their best efforts. Should Johnson, Kansas City and Pratt all lose on Monday, the men would only need to draw Monday at Allen County to clinch the fourth seed and host a first-round playoff match for only the second time in the program’s history.
The closer Playoffs are, it usually means anything can happen, and they usually get pretty crazy!
