The Bearcats were defeated by North Platte 4-26 but rebounded in districts, earning a place in the championship round of the Class B District 6 tournament this Thursday. 
HOLDREGE — The Scottsbluff boys’ soccer team was on the road in Holdrege for a chance to play in the championship round of the Class B District 6 tournament – and they came away successful.
Scottsbluff posted a 1-0 win over Grand Island Northwest in the semifinal game on Tuesday afternoon.

The lone score came from Eseah Ingram, who kicked in an unassisted goal just a couple of minutes into the second half of play. Scottsbluff outshot Northwest 7-3 in the match and had a slight 3-2 advantage in corner kicks.

The match marked Scottsbluff’s second straight shutout, and eighth of the season. The first came the day before when the Bearcats blanked Kearney Catholic by a 5-0 score on Monday in the first round of the tournament.

The win sets up the May 2 B-6 title match when Scottsbluff will face Lexington. The Minutemen beat the Bearcats 6-0 back on April 1. The winner earns an automatic berth in the state tournament, which starts May 8 in Omaha.

The Gering boys’ soccer team was also in Holdrege for the B-6 tournament, but was eliminated in the opener on Monday afternoon with a 3-1 loss to Holdrege.
