The postseason is underway. Brent C. Wagner updates the ratings.

Team (Rec.); Pvs.

1. Omaha South (16-1); 1

2. Lincoln Southwest (13-0); 2

3. Gretna (13-3); 3

4. Omaha Westside (11-5); 5

5. Creighton Prep (12-5); 4

6. Lincoln East (11-4); 6

8. Millard South (11-5); 9

9. Omaha Bryan (9-7); -

10. Columbus (8-7); -

Contenders: Grand Island, Lincoln Southeast, Millard North.

Comments: The Class A districts and Class B subdistricts started Saturday and really ramp up early this week. Columbus pulled the big first upset by beating then-No. 4 Creighton Prep 1-0 in overtime. Columbus at one point had a six-match winning streak, but has now won seven straight and is one win away from making state. Columbus (8-7) will play Grand Island (9-5) in the district final Thursday. Lincoln Southwest finished the regular season 13-0 for its first undefeated regular season in program history.

Tough districts: A-3 (Gretna, Omaha Bryan); A-5 (Millard South, Omaha Burke); A-6 (Lincoln East, Millard West); A-7 (Omaha Westside, Lincoln Southeast).

CLASS B BOYS

Team (Rec.); Pvs.

1. Omaha Skutt (14-1); 1

2. Lexington (15-1); 2

3. Bennington (14-2); 3

4. Scottsbluff (9-4); 4

5. Northwest (10-3); 5

6. Beatrice (13-2); 8

7. Columbus Scotus (9-6); 10

8. Mount Michael (7-5); 9

9. Schuyler (9-6); 7

10. South Sioux City (7-8); -

Contenders: Blair, Kearney Catholic.

Comments: The only loss in the regular season for Omaha Skutt came in a shootout against Lincoln Southwest. Beatrice has a nine-match winning streak, and at No. 3 in the NSAA wild-card points has a good chance to make state for the first time.

Tough subdistricts: B-3 (Bennington, Mount Michael, Elkhorn North); B-5 (Beatrice, Crete, Norris, Waverly); B-6 (Columbus Scotus, Schuyler).

10. Elkhorn South (7-6); 9

Contenders: Lincoln High, Omaha Westside.

Comments: Lincoln High upset then-No. 4 Papillion-La Vista 1-0 in a shootout on Saturday in the district semifinals. It was the Links’ first win against a Class A team that had a winning record this season. Lincoln High (7-9) will play Kearney in the district final. Kearney beat Lincoln High 3-0 to end the regular season. Gretna has already set a Class A record for goals in a season (126). That includes 39 scored by Nebraska recruit Sarah Weber, which is just four from tying the Class A record for goals in a season.
