Mississippi Valley Conference boys soccer this season seems to come down to the survival of the fittest in each and every game.
With the MVC boasting six of the top seven rated teams in this week’s Class 3A poll, there are few easy matches.
Pity the sixth-ranked Prairie Hawks, for instance.
They started the year with eight straight wins and climbed to the No.1 ranking. They’ve since lost four out of five, but their last six games have been to ranked foes.
The Hawks dropped yet another nail-biter Monday night at home, this time a hard-fought 1-0 loss to top-rated Kennedy (10-0, 7-0).
