Manti and St. Joseph have staged memorable Class 2A boys’ soccer games the past two seasons, last year in the semifinals and 2012 in the title game.

When the tournament begins this year, though, the two rivals won’t have to wait long to play. Manti, which joins Parowan, defending champion American Leadership Academy and Waterford as the top seeds, opens the tournament at home Wednesday against St. Joseph.
