QUINCY (WGEM) - The IHSA postseason gets underway on the prep gridiron this Saturday for the (6-3) Mustangs of Unity. UHS will face a tough challenge on the road when they travel to Nashville to take on the (7-1) Hornets.

NHS has won 6 games in a row heading in this weekend’s contest against the Mustangs, who have been led by a strong defensive unit this season. Heading into Saturday’s collision against Nashville, Unity has posted a (2-2) slate playing on the road during their 2021 campaign.

The WGEM Sports-Cam recently traveled to Mendon to check in on Mustangs head coach Matt Woodworth and his squad as they focus in on their biggest game of the year.

Give the (5-8-2) Lady Blazers a lot of credit for not resting on their recent success! On Wednesday, just 24 hours after posting their very first post-season victory in the programs short history, the John Wood Women’s Soccer Team was back at work on the practice pitch, and for good reason.

On Friday, 4th-seeded JWCC is set to take on top-seeded Heartland on their home turf in the semifinals of the Region 24 Tournament. HCC plays on artificial turf on their Normal, Illinois campus, so to better prepare the Lady Blazers for that environment, John Wood head coach Hayley Womack changed practice venues. The Lady Blazers moved from the natural grass at JWCC to the artificial turf at Flinn Memorial Stadium.

For Blazers freshman goalkeeper Maddie Hill, who tallied 6 saves during John Woods 4-0 win against Parkland on Tuesday, the move to Flinn was almost like a mini-homecoming.
