It's hard to beat the same team twice. Though with homefield advantage, St. Louis will be tough.
I think Vandy will come prepared. I know that coaching staff is hungry for another title...and as much as I'd like to be known as a member of the last State Championship VCH soccer team, I think I'd rather see my alma mater bring home another 'ship.
Since Vandebilt only beat ASH 2-0 im gonna have to say St. Louis 4 and Vandy 2. The reason is because Vandebilt is too good of a team to only score 1 goal and theres no way Vandy will shutout St Louis. Anyways with that being said I wish I could be there to see these two go at it but goodluck to both teams.
