The McPherson Bullpups Boys soccer team plays the Salina Central Mustangs Tuesday night at 7 at McPherson Stadium. The Bullpups roll into Regionals with a 13-2-1 record and the overall fourth seed; the Mustangs stagger in with a 5-10-1 record and the 13th seed.
The McPherson boys were often dominant this season, with a staggering +57 goal differential. The Mustangs, however, had a -27 goal differential. Salina Central only scored 16 goals overall during the season, contrast that with McPherson’s 76 goals scored and 19 goals allowed. No team can be overlooked in the playoffs, and stranger things have happened, but I feel confident in saying the boys will get a win tomorrow night. If the Bullpups do manage to win they will play the winner of the Emporia vs. Valley Center game at McPherson Stadium on Thursday. Go Bullpups!
