In 2013, the Green Wave made it to the state championship game and lost to Faith Lutheran 17-0. This year Churchill County had no problem defeating Chaparral High School (9-3), 40-27 and look for them to give Moapa Valley a run for their money.

The game will be up in Reno on Saturday at noon.

The team could break it this Saturday. Spring Mountain lost to Whittell (7-0), which means the Warriors will play the Panthers at 12 p.m. on Saturday at Dayton High School.

South Lake Tahoe hosted the state championship, but it wasn't to be. The Crusaders, after years of making it to the playoffs, finally won their first soccer state title after making three state playoff appearances in 2012, 2013 and 2014.

They beat South Tahoe 1-0. This was Faith Lutheran's final year in I-A.
