The victor will play in the 6 p.m. quarterfinal match against the winner of the sectional match between District 1 champion Gideon (26-6) and District 2 champion Bernie (23-7).

Perryville (31-5-1) won the Class 3 District 1 title as the No. 3 seed, upsetting top-seeded Notre Dame, and will face De Soto (20-14-2) in a 3 p.m. sectional match at Lutheran South High School. The Lancers (24-6-2), who finished third in last year's Class 3 tournament, won the District 3 title to gain the host rights and will face University City (7-18-2).
