Soccer Playoffs Enfuego for Chesterfield teams

While most sports fan are watching the Stanley Cup (go Ducks) or the NBA Playoffs (could care less) we have the Central Region Playoffs with High School athletics being played out across town. My heart lies with soccer and lacrosse (since we have yet to see lacrosse played as a Central Region endoresed sport) I will stick with soccer.
Thomas Dale Knights are ENFUEGO. The varsity soccer team are two time winners of Stae and will attempt to extend a 67 game winning streek against the Titans of Cosby High. Cosby was the runner up in the Dominion District and is putting together a really nice first year run at the Region title. Cosby is 13-5-1 and Thomas Dale is 19-0-0 going into the 5:30 PM matchup at Cosby High School. Cosby is a very young team and is getting the chance to take on the State Champs at home and they have to be excited about that. While many believe that the Dominion was more competitive than the Central where Dale plays, Cosby will have some work to do. Thomas Dale has as many shutouts as most teams have wines (16).
Heart: Cosby Reality: Thomas Dale Gut: Thomas Dale
One of my favorite teams to watch is James River, whose style of play is enjoying to watch. The Rapids however, came up short against Central Region champ Mills Godwin. Rapids were winners of the Dominion and matched up well against Godwin, but in the end the Eagles defense was relentless and secured the 1-0 victory . Godwin will challenge Atlee, a cinderalla of sorts in this playoff.
Atlee has taken down Clover Hill and Thomas Dale to reach the championship game against Godwin being held at Cosby tomorrow at 5:30. Both have qualified for States. Godwin is the sure hand favorite.
Heart: Atlee Reality: Godwin Gut: Atlee in upset

Baseball playoffs begin as well:
Hanover Vs. James River (Gut: James River)
Cosby vs. Deep Run (Gut: closer than you think but Deep Run)
