The combination of St. Francis beating Presentation 1-0 and Mitty upsetting St. Ignatius 1-0 on Saturday means the Lancers (11-0-3, 5-0-2) trip to San Francisco on Tuesday will likely determine the West Catholic Athletic League girls soccer title.
The St. Francis-St. Ignatius winner will clinch at least a tie for the title. Should the match end in a draw, the Lancers gain the advantage with two more matches remaining next week.
St. Ignatius (9-3-3, 6-1-2) has played St. Francis twice this season, losing 3-1 at the Fremont tournament early in the season and playing to a 1-1 draw during the WCAL regular season. Tuesday’s match is SI’s final regular-season contest.
Defending Central Coast Section champion Mitty (9-4-2, 4-2-1) is in third place.
In the Peninsula Athletic League Bay Division, Woodside was upset by host Aragon 2-1 Saturday in a makeup contest from Jan. 13. It was Woodside’s first loss of the season.
Sofia Bellver-Eymann scored for the Wildcats (14-1-1, 6-1-1), who host co-second place Burlingame at 4:30 p.m. Tuesday.
Woodside, which played Menlo-Atherton to a scoreless draw in its previous match, also has a game at co-second place Sequoia on Thursday.
Aragon (5-7-2, 2-5-1) is in fifth place in the PAL. Burlingame and Sequoia are both 5-2-1 in league play.
In a West Catholic Athletic League boys soccer match Saturday, St. Francis won its fifth straight match, beating Bellarmine 1-0.

St. Francis hosts St. Ignatius on Wednesday at 4 p.m. The Wildcats beat SF 4-1 in their first meeting.
