Boys Soccer

  1. Mercy Rule: A running clock shall now be used once a lead reaches six (6) goals or more in the second half. Timing shall only return to regulation timing and stoppages if the lead decreases to three (3) goals. The current 10-goal early termination rule remains in place.

  2. All sub-state contest hosts are required to collect gate/admission for those contests. If, due to special circumstances, the host school cannot collect a gate, they may request a waiver from the SDHSAA staff.
