Southwest boys happy to be back on pitch. And more happy to be 3-0 after rivalry win

Contender: Grand Island, Kearney, Omaha Burke, Papillion-La Vista.

Comments: Omaha South moves up one spot after its 2-1 shootout win against Creighton Prep on Monday. South also beat one of the top programs from Illinois, Peoria Notre Dame, 7-1 to begin the season.

Worth noting: The format for the May 11-19 state tournament has changed this year due to COVID-19 procedures, going from a six-day tournament to eight days to reduce the maximum number of matches played each day from six to four. For Class A boys that means matches will be spread over eight days (Tuesday first round, Saturday semifinals, Tuesday championship).
