Big Saturday of soccer districts

Many eyes will be on football both Friday night during the last full night of the regular season and on Sunday when the playoff pairings are announced on Fox Sports Detroit.
But Kosmo is even more intrigued by all the good boys soccer district finals that will take place on Saturday afternoon, so much so that college football won't be the only thing on the K-Man's mind.
The biggest game will be at Walled Lake Central, where Troy and Walled Lake Northern will meet in a battle of two teams that are ranked among the top 5 in the state in Division 1.
The Knights are coming off a penalty-kick win over Lakeland, so Troy could be the fresher team.
Another good game will be at Fenton, where OAA Red rivals Rochester Adams and Lake Orion will play for a district title.
Adams is the favorite and the better team on paper, but Lake Orion is no slouch and is fully capable of avenging a loss to the Highlanders during the regular season.
Yet another big game is in Division 2, where Bloomfield Hills Cranbrook Kingswood will face Birmingham Detroit Country Day at St. Clair Shores Lakeview.
Cranbrook has had a terrific season, losing just once, while this is not one of Country Day's best teams.
Still, Country Day has won the most state titles of any program in the state for a reason and is never an easy team to eliminate.
If those three good matchups weren't enough, there'll be another one at Fowlerville (not sure why they just don't re-schedule a closer site now) when Bloomfield Hills Lahser takes on Auburn Hills Avondale.
Don't be surprised if this game is decided in penalty kicks.
Without question, it should be an outstanding soccer Saturday.
