The Lady Longhorn soccer team’s postseason fate could rest on the result of an Oct. 18 clash in Snowflake. That’s because Payson (3-4) is now sitting eighth in power point rankings and eight teams from Division IV’s 12 schools will advance to the state tournament set to begin Oct. 28 at Quail Run Complex in Mesa. An upset win over the homestanding Lobos could supply enough points for the Lady Horns to remain in tournament contention, but a loss might drop the team out of consideration. “I’m hoping a win will get us in,” said head coach Amy Wilcox.
