Listen live online Wednesday via JoeInsider.com as Hackett Catholic Prep faces Kalamazoo Christian in boys soccer with a 5 p.m. ET kickoff at Soisson-Rapacz-Clason Field.
Both squads are off to a strong start and look to compete for the top spot in the SAC this season. The Irish are 3-1 and opened league play with a blowout 8-0 win Monday over Saugatuck. The Comets are 3-0 and 2-0 already in conference play with a 3-0 win last week against Delton Kellogg and a 9-1 mauling Monday of Lawton.
There has already been a common opponent for both as well in Hillsdale Academy, the team HCP beat in overtime for a district title last year. Hackett beat the Colts 3-0 last Thursday and KC earned a 2-0 victory Saturday, a far better result for the Comets than their 5-0 loss last season. K-Christian hopes to similarly flip the script against the Irish, who have defeated them in each boys soccer match since 2012. HCP won 5-0 in their regular season meeting and 7-0 in the regional semifinal against KC last season.
