The boys high school soccer preseason kicked off Friday with the Mason Preseason Classic tournament at Heritage Oak Park (masonpreseasonclassic.com).

Teams from Fairmont, Bellbrook and Carroll represented the Dayton area against dozens from Cincinnati and beyond,. Games are scheduled through Sunday.

This video is from Friday night's top-division game between Fairmont and Bellbrook, which Fairmont won, 1-0 on a late goal.

Nearly 35 girls high school soccer teams, many from the Dayton area, start their preseason this Saturday and Sunday at Northmont's Good Samaritan Classic at the Englewood Soccer Complex on Hoke Road (northmontsoccerclassic.com).

Next week, the tournaments flip, with the girls at Mason, and the boys at Northmont.
