Local soccer teams will play finales

For the Utah Blitzz, Saturday night is their final game, but more games are in store once the playoffs start. For the Utah Spiders, Saturday night is their last game of the season.

The Blitzz host the Arizona Sahuaros, the Division's worst team, at 7:30 p.m. at Rice-Eccles Stadium.

The game is crucial as far as playoff positioning goes. Utah trails first-place Chico by four points (four points are awarded for a win) and second-place Tucson by three points in the D3 standings. Four teams advance to the playoffs, with the top two hosting in the first round.

The Blitzz's final regular-season game will be next weekend at Riverside.

The Spiders would likely be playoff bound, too, if the WPSL had a postseason. However, Saturday's 7 p.m. game against San Diego at Juan Diego High School probably won't lack in playoff atmosphere.

San Diego is in a first-place tie with California, and a win over the Spiders would secure a league championship.
