Vicksburg comes in hot, earning a third-best ranking in LaxPower.com’s latest Division 2 rankings. The Bulldogs are 13-1 overall with an eight-game winning streak.

Harper Creek sits at 6-10 on the season and are the seventh seed. The Beavers fell to Vicksburg when they met on May 3 by a 21-7 final. That match was Vicksburg’s best offensive output of the season and the worst defensive output for Harper Creek.
Last season, the Bulldogs won three meetings over Harper Creek, including in the 2017 regional semifinal. However, the Beavers gave them their tightest game in the postseason, with the Bulldogs snagging a 10-8 victory.
