The Southern Section Division 1 soccer semifinal on Tuesday between Servite and host Loyola is scheduled to begin at 3 p.m. For fans who might be a little late, don't worry. You probably have until about 5 p.m. when penalty kicks might happen.

"In this rivalry, you never know," Servite Coach Jon Spencer said.

These two schools are meeting for the third consecutive season in the semifinals. Last year, unbeaten Loyola needed 10 penalty kicks to beat the Friars. Both schools are expected to practice penalty kicks on Monday in preparation should no winner emerge after regulation play.

Servite is led by junior Garrett Amador. Tommy Fraher has been Loyola's top goal scorer.

The other semifinal matches unbeaten El Toro and Huntington Beach Edison.

It's four terrific teams one win away from playing for a title.
