The CIF Southern Section released the pairings for the 2019 Division I Boys Soccer playoffs today (Feb. 2), and Loyola's Varsity Soccer team earned the No. 1 overall seed in the bracket.
With a 23-1-2 record, the reigning Mission League champion Cubs have a first round bye and will host the winner of an opening round game between El Dorado (Crestview League/13-9-5 overall) and Valencia HS of Placentia (Empire League/14-3-10 overall).
The second round game will be held at Loyola, set for a 3:00 p.m. start on Saturday (Feb. 9) at Smith Field. A win there would move Loyola into the CIF Quarterfinal round the following Wednesday (Feb. 13).
