TWIN FALLS, Idaho (KMVT/KSVT) - The 4A district girls soccer championship was on the line Thursday afternoon between a pair of rivals, Canyon Ridge and Twin Falls.

Later in the first half, Canyon Ridge’s goalkeeper tries to kick a ball away, but Regan Rex makes her pay. She finds Madelyn McQueen and the junior scores on a beautifully executed play, Twin Falls takes a 2-0 lead.
They win this one, 4-0 capturing their sixth consecutive title and taking the one seed from District IV to state.
The Riverhawks will face the Tigers on Saturday to decide who takes the second and final seed to state. This, after Jerome eliminated Mountain Home on Thursday from contention, 1-0.
