Field conditions at Cownie Soccer Park in Des Moines have forced the Iowa High School Athletic Association to make adjustments to the 2019 boys’ state soccer tournament.

Quarterfinal and semifinal games have been moved back a day, from Thursday and Friday to Friday and Saturday. The championship games in all three classes, originally scheduled for Saturday, have been postponed to Tuesday.

Games cannot take place on Sunday according to IHSAA policy, and the IGHSAU has girls' soccer regional finals set for Monday.

Here’s a look at the complete pairings and schedule.
