The Playoffs are Underway in the Bulegrass and we have already had a ton of action in just these first couple of days. The KSLL District 1,2, and 4 championships have been set. The District 3 championship was played a day before the rest, Wednesday. Also, all of the KLA Play-in games have happened so we know what all the first round, or second round, match ups will look like.

I also failed to mention on the podcast and in the first playoff post that Owensboro was in their tournament as well. They are in the Hoosier Southern Lacrosse Conference which is basically comprised of teams in the Evansville, IN area.


First, I want to clear something up. I was mistaken on the most recent podcast when I said that the number one seed in the district gets to host. Here is how KSLL playoff system works. 

District Tournements - 
    There are four districts, 1, 2, 3, and 4, and host sites rotate schools each year.

KSLL State Tournament -

     The four district winners and are draw out of a hat for number 1, 2, 3, and 4 spots. Each district runner-up will be on the opposite side of the bracket as the winner from their district. The 1 &2 or 3 &4 teams could possibly meet in the semifinals. That all depends on if they win. The top 4 teams, district winners, will host the quarterfinals on Monday.

We have one winner already in district 3. District 1, 2, and 4 will have their championships tonight.


The KLA has a more simplier playoff system as teams are basically seeded based on where they stand in their district. So that top 4 teams are the top 4 seeds and the other teams fill in, so to speak. The bottom teams in each district will go to the play-in games.

The play-in games have been concluded and the first round has been set. Those games will begin Thursday and Friday.

I am not exactly sure how it works in the HSLC so I can't really explain. What I do know is that Owensboro lost their first playoff game to Evansville North on Tuesday. 

Good Season boys and keep growing the game in the Western part of the state.
