Concordia boys soccer wins playoff opener

The Concordia Academy boys soccer team did something last week that it hadn’t been able to accomplish in quite a few years. With their 3-0 victory over Hmong Academy on Oct. 13, the Beacons won a post-season game for the first time in six years. 

Concordia Academy had lost six consecutive playoff matches dating back to 2010. That year, the Beacons opened the post-season with a win over St. Agnes but lost to St. Paul Como Park in the second round. Since then, they’ve been one-and-done in the playoffs each year.

Concordia Academy (8-8-1), the seventh seed, advanced to the quarterfinals and played a match at second-seeded St. Paul Como Park on Oct. 15. That match was not completed before this edition of the Review went to press.

The Raiders drew the fifth seed in Section 5AA and opened the playoffs on Oct. 15, past the deadline for this edition of the Review. Roseville played at fourth-seeded Irondale with the winner advancing to the semifinals on Oct. 18 against either top-seeded Park Center or eighth-seeded Mounds View.

The Section 5AA championship match is Oct. 20.
