The substate soccer final hosted by Pella High School Monday will be played at the Pella Soccer Complex, not the high school. Best advice is to googlemap or mapquest it for exact directions, however it is on the same road as the high school (University St and turns into Idaho Street) but take it about 3 miles west of the high school and over HWY 163 – look for Neil Drive on your left about 1/4mile over the hwy.
