Congratulations to the Wakeland boys and girls soccer teams on advancing to the 5A Region II championship games. The Wakeland teams clinched regional final berths with convincing victories Tuesday night -- the girls beat Forney 6-0 and the boys beat Nacogdoches 2-0.
The Wolverines will play Friday for a spot in the state semifinal round, and having both teams still in the brackets this late in the playoffs is nothing new. Back in 2018, the Wakeland boys and girls teams swept the 5A state titles.
Here’s when the Wakeland teams play in the regional finals on Friday (April 9):
Wakeland v. Highland Park, 6 p.m. Friday, Mesquite Memorial Stadium
Wakeland v. Longview, (UPDATED DAY/TIME!) 11 a.m. Saturday, Sulphur Springs High School
Good luck, Wolverines!
