The Maplewood Richmond Heights Blue Devils (20-5) will face the Saxony Lutheran Crusaders (15-10) in a Class 1 state quarterfinal soccer game at MRH on Saturday, October 29 at 1 p.m.
MRH played Saxony in the Hannibal Varsity Tournament in the beginning of the season, with the Crusaders coming out on top 2-0. It was a very physical and competitive game, a parent said. The Devils finished third and the Crusaders finished second in the tournament.
MRH qualified for the state quarterfinal game by beating Brentwood 6-0 in the district final. It’s the first time in 30 years that the Blue Devils have won districts.
