OREM, Utah — The Mountain View girl’s soccer team was awarded the 17-seed in the UHSAA 5A playoffs and will face No. 19 Orem in a first round match on Thursday, Oct. 8, at 7 p.m. MDT.
The game will be streamed for free by Deseret Digital Media here.
The Bruins fell last Thursday to Lehi in overtime and Orem lost at Timpview in their final match of the regular season. Both teams enter the game having lost a combined seven of their last nine matches.
The teams split in the regular season, with Orem winning a home match back on August 25, and Mountain View evening the series nearly a month later. The Bruins finished in 4th place in Region 7, one spot ahead of Orem, which finished tied for 5th place.
Last season, the 16-seeded Bruins managed to advance to the semifinals before falling to No. 5 Skyline (the eventual 5A champions). Mountain View will begin what they hope will be another deep playoff run when they take the field against their rivals on Thursday.
