Edina
Lakeville South

Lundgren Leads Lakeville to AA Title

By Mark Genosky
Metrodome

The Hornets created an early buzz, but in the end it was Lakeville South swarming to the championship in the Girlsí Class AA Soccer Tournament, defeating Edina 2-1.  Player of the year Krista Lundgren led the way.

 

Lundgren scored her second goal of the game, and the game winner, off a corner kick with 6:32 left in regulation.  Olivia Bagnall delivered the corner, and Lundgren deflected it in from inside the 6-yard box.

 

Edina almost netted the equalizer with 2:22 left.  With Lakeville goalie Lindi Steffan caught in no-manís lad, Neredith Finsand headed one just over the crossbar from 7-yards out.  That would be the last good chance for the Hornets.

 

Lakeville needed Lundgren to be the player of the year.  She converted in the 26th minute off a pretty play.  Madeline Russell dished the ball into the middle of the box, and Lundgren ran on and did an effortless re-direct past Edina goalie Callan Faulkner to tie things up.

 

The Cougars found themselves digging out of an early hole.  Natalie Pastor drilled a free kick from 45-yards out up and over Steffan and into the back of the net just over a minute into the game.  But Lundgren and the Cougars had enough to battle back.

 

This is the first state title for Lakeville South.  They finish the season 20-2.  Edina falls just short of their 2nd state championship, and wraps up their season with a record of 18-2-2.
