The high school girls soccer season reaches the postseason next week with conference races wrapping up before regional play begins on the pitch.
Freeport has its sights set on a NIC-10 title and the Lady Pretzels improved to 6-0 in conference play with a 5-0 victory over Guilford in Stephenson County on Senior Night for the home team. Freeport faces Belvidere North on Thursday in a matchup of the NIC-10's undefeated squads in the standings.
In non-conference play, a NIC-10 vs Big Northern tilt went to a draw between two teams gearing up for their respective brackets. Lutheran and Harlem played to a 3-3 tie in Machesney Park.
