MIAMI — The Miami Wardog boys’ soccer team is playoff bound.
The only thing is the Wardogs don’t know who or where they will be playing in the first round Friday, April 27.
They’re locked into third place in District 4A-8, but could finish second if Grove defeated Tulsa Webster by three goals or more Monday, April 23 in Tulsa.
“We’re locked into third at least,” Miami boys coach David Douthit said. “If that happens, we are second.”
The Wardogs improved to 7-7 and, more importantly, 5-2 in the district with a 3-2 upset win in overtime at Skiatook on Friday, April 20.
That leaves Miami at plus-10 in marginal points.
The loss was the first in district play for Skiatook (6-1 and 11-3), which has completed its season.
Webster is 5-1 and plus-12 in points while Grove stands 4-2 and plus-6.
District 4A-8 is paired against 4A-5 in the first round.
Catoosa and Verdigris finished 6-1 in district play, but Verdigris owns a 3-2 win at home over the Indians on April 17.
“We should’ve scored a couple goals against Webster and Commerce — we would be champs.”
Shane Herrel had two goals, including the game winner in a second 10-minute overtime period, against Skiatook.
Ryan Hackett had the other score for the Dogs.
“It was a crazy game,” Douthit said. “After starting 0-5, we’ve gone 7-2.”
The Wardogs made up the Owasso JV game Monday night.’
Miami’s girls wrapped up their season with a 3-2 loss at Skiatook.
That was their eighth loss in 14 matches that was decided by three or less goals.
This was the Lady Wardogs’ third 3-2 setback.
Beca Hopping and Rebecca Bell scored the goals for Miami (5-9, 3-5), which trailed 2-1 at the break.
For the first time in program history, both Miami teams posted 10-0 victories on one night in routs against Langston Hughes Academy for Arts and Technology from Tulsa on April 17.
