Brophy, Pinnacle advance to AZ Showcase quarterfinals

ESR Winter Boys’ Soccer Top 50 No. 3 Brophy Prep (Ariz.) and Pinnacle (Ariz.) became the first two teams to secure places in the Arizona Showcase quarterfinals with Friday victories.

Brophy closed out a perfect run through group play with a 5-0 decision over Westview (Ariz.). Although Pinnacle played to a draw with Ironwood (Ariz.) in its final group match, the Phoenix-based school advanced on points.

ESR No. 12 San Clemente holds a commanding lead in its group and is almost a lock to advance. San Clemente would have to lose by four goals in order to make it through. Likewise, No. 25 Paramount needs only a draw in its Saturday morning match to move on.

It is likely all four ESR Top 50-ranked teams in the Arizona Showcase field will advance to the quarterfinals.
