There won't be a third matchup between the Sauk Prairie and Baraboo prep boys soccer teams this season.
The Badger North Conference rivals were placed in different WIAA postseason brackets over the weekend, as Sauk Prairie earned a No. 1 seed in Division 2 while Baraboo is seeded third in Division 1. Reedsburg is seeded seventh in Sauk Prairie's regional.
Sauk Prairie (5-2-2) and Baraboo (9-2-1), which split their two games against each other this season, will both open regional play at home.
Sauk Prairie is scheduled to host eighth-seeded Mauston (3-1-3) on Oct. 20. The winner will advance to take on No. 4 Platteville/Lancaster (2-1-0) or No. 5 Portage (0-6-1) on Oct. 24.
Reedsburg (0-7-1) is at the bottom of that bracket, and will open up at No. 2 Dodgeville/Mineral Point (4-0-0) on Oct. 20. The winner will meet No. 3 Madison Edgewood (4-3-1) or No. 6 Wisconsin Dells (2-2-1) in the second round.
Baraboo was set to host No. 6 Wausau East (1-6-0) on Oct. 20, but the Lumberjacks forfeited. Therefore, the Thunderbirds will take on No. 2 Wisconsin Rapids Lincoln (4-2-0) or No. 7 Tomah (1-3-3) in an Oct. 24 regional final. Wausau West (6-0-0) is the top seed in the bracket, while No. 4 Marshfield (2-3-2) and No. 5 D.C. Everest (2-2-1) round out the field.
It will take four wins for the local teams to reach state, which is scheduled to be held Nov. 5-7.
