5:30 p.m.: Hopkinsville v Christian County (Stadium of Champions)

The Hopkinsville Tigers and Christian County Colonels meet tonight in the first game of the 8th District boys' soccer tournament at the Stadium of Champions. 

Hoptown took down the Colonels 5-1 in the only meeting this season between the two teams as it was the same result during the 2018 season. 

The Tigers have won five-straight games heading into the district tourney where they've outscored opponents 21-3. 

The Colonels have lost five of six coming going into tonight with a 2-2 draw against Williamstown in the Bruin Class at the Elizabethtown Sportspark. 

Despite the losing streak, Christian County fell to Madisonville-North Hopkins 5-1 in the regular-season finale, but the Colonels gave the Maroons all they could handle. 

Benito Rubio has led the Cols in goals this season with 10, but eight Christian County players have scored this season for first-year coach Austin Byrum. 

Tyler Greenwell leads the Tigers this year as he has 16 goals heading into the postseason. Welby Horn has five assists to lead Hoptown. 

7:30 p.m.: UHA v Fort Campbell (Stadium of Champions)

University Heights Academy has scored the second-most goals in the 2nd Region as the Blazers have 80 this season while Fort Campbell is in the bottom half with only 31 goals. 

The Blazers have won three of their last five since the All "A" Classic State Tournament with losses to Owensboro and Collins. 

UHA has finished with 12 wins the last two seasons and a win tonight would give the Blazers 13 wins, their most since 2013 when the team finished with 14. 

The Blazers have been led by the two-headed attack of William Bryan (30 goals, 10 assists) and Tanner Thomas (24 goals, 16 assists). The duo, along with Connor Dill (12 assists) have also led the Blazers in assists. 

Fort Campbell hasn't won a game since Sept. 17 when the Falcons took down Christian County 5-2. 

Jhony Paniagua-Solis has led the Falcons with 15 goals this season.
