Two-time defending champion Omaha Skutt has home matches Tuesday and Friday before a weekend meeting with Millard West in the Kicks For a Cure event. … Elkhorn South will play in Monday’s Metro tournament quarterfinals, where a win could get it a meeting with Marian in the semifinals Tuesday. Win there and a match with another ranked opponent would await in Wednesday’s championship before a weekend match with Millard South.
