Quite possibly the most incomplete "preview" I have ever read. Only 5 schools named that they are in the tournament, and mentioned one that lost the play in game. What about all the other schools that worked just as hard to get to the tournament?

I understand that soccer isn't as widely watched as Basketball or Football, but there are still plenty of soccer fans that would enjoy knowing what is going on.

I have to agree with NK84. There is no mention of the 5A leading goalscorer, just the 2nd leading goalscorer. The fact is, Connor Thompson of Copper Hills not only finished as the leading scorer, he also broke the school record for goals scored in a season. Unfortunately for him, he doesn't get a mention because he doesn't play for the "right" school. Quite an accomplishment I would say, especially when you consider he had to play the top 2 teams (Brighton and Alta) in the region to set the record.
It would be nice if such accomplishments were noted in the article, and I am sure there are others that fully deserve a mention too. This article seems to have been written with very little thought or understanding of the game.
There is no question Brighton are favorites (in my opinion) and Alta will be there or there abouts, but a little less bias would be appreciated.
Good luck to every player and school involved.
