Flivvers, Mountaineers to compete in UP soccer championship Saturday
MARQUETTE — Fans will be admitted to the Upper Peninsula Soccer Championships to be held at the Kaufman Sports Complex in north Marquette on Saturday.
The boys high school tournament will feature the host Redmen, Iron Mountain, Kingsford and Houghton playing a round-robin format with a pair of fields being used for simultaneous games with starting times ranging from 10 a.m. to 2:30 p.m Eastern time.
Games will have 30-minute halves with a five-minute halftime period. Five-player shootouts will determine winners for games that end in ties.
Admission is $5 per person and medals will be presented to the team champion, runner-up and third-place finishers, with a trophy for the championship team.
Organizers established a tiebreaking procedure in this order — head-to-head, goal differential, fewest goals allowed, and finally, a shootout.
