Top-seeded Delta will face No. 3 Sikeston in the championship game at 8:30 p.m. Delta made it to the finals by beating No. 4 Oran 65-22 in one semifinal, while Sikeston knocked off No. 2 Kelly 70-58 in the other semifinal.

Oran and Kelly will play in the third-place game at 7 p.m. In the consolation final, Scott County Central will face Chaffee at 5:30 p.m. Chaffee defeated Scott City 60-43 consolation play, and Scott County beat East Prairie 80-21.

Omission

Jackson senior midfielder Cameron Keller was omitted from the boys soccer all-state story in Saturday's edition.

Keller was named honorable-mention all-state by the Missouri Soccer Coaches Association. The Indians fell to Central in the championship game of the Class 3 District 1 tournament. Keller was Jackson's lone all-state representative.
