Knoxville will try to qualify for the class 2A boys State Soccer Tournament for the second straight season this afternoon when the Panthers face Norwalk in the Sub State final. The Panthers have faced Oskaloosa and Pella in the first two rounds, while Norwalk dispatched Centerville on Wednesday night. Panthers Coach Jon Smith and the team have been waiting to get a second chance against Norwalk after falling 1-0 in a game he says could have gone the other way. Kickoff is scheduled for two this afternoon, the winner gets a trip to the class 2A state tournament next week.
