All three games start at 7 p.m.

Winners of those three loser-out contests will move into the double-elimination portion of the tournament with games on Saturday, May 6, against higher-seeded opponents to to be determined.

The Warriors earned their likely No. 1 seeding in the district tournament by going undefeated during the regular season, 14-0-2 overall and 14-0-1 in the 3A Wesco League to earn the league’s regular season title. E-W will be looking to improve upon their third-place finish in last year’s District 1 3A tournament.

The Royals are returning to the district tourney for the second straight season; Lynnwood went 7-9-0 overall and 7-8-0 in league play this year and ended the regular season with a four-match winning streak — all four victories coming via shutouts.

Meadowdale and Mountlake Terrace are back in the district tournament after failing to make the field last season. The Mavs finished this year’s regular season with a mark of 6-6-4 overall and 6-5-4 in league play; the Hawks went 6-8-2 overall and 6-7-2 in the Wesco League this year.
