CHEYENNE, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - The 4A and 3A WHSAA Soccer State Tournaments began on Thursday in Cheyenne. If you win in your first game, you head to Friday’s state semifinals. If you lose, your season does not end but you play a consolations match on Friday and cannot win a state championship.

All told, the West Region dominated the East. West teams won 12 of the 16 quarterfinal games and Southeastern Wyoming teams went (1-5) on the day.

Attached are Nick Kuzma’s highlights from Thursday night’s sportscast.
