DEVENS--

Wednesday afternoon the Massachusetts Interscholastic Athletic Association announced the seeds for the upcoming Central Mass. boys' and girls' soccer tournaments. Groton-Dunstable and Bromfield have both their girls' and boys' teams competing for a shot at a sectional title. The Bromfield boys' and girls' team will both square off with Littleton on Friday afternoon at 2 p.m. The Lady Trojans will take to the pitch at Harvard Park, while the boys will play at Depot Field.

Groton-Dunstable's girls' team will play on the road at Oakmont under the lights at 7 p.m. In Ashburnham. The Lady Crusaders secured their spot in the tournament with a 1-1 draw with Marlboro last week. Groton-Dunstable's Danni Kenney struck a majestic penalty kick in the game, which ended up being the Lady Crusaders lone tally. Groton-Dunstable are owners of an 8-8-2 overall record, with a Midland-B division mark of 5-3-2.

Oakmont took care of business in the Wachusett League-C group with an overall record of 11-3-2, and 8-1-1 in the league. Saturday evening marks the first meeting between the two clubs this season.

On the boys' side, the defending Division 2 State Champions will play host to St. Bernard's on Friday at 2 p.m. The Crusaders own a Midland-B conference best 9-0-1 record with an overall standing of 12-3-2. The Bernardians come into the game with an 8-8-2 record.
