Minnesota Sports Broadcast Network broadcast preview, week Six

WEST ST. PAUL, MN; The Minnesota Sports Broadcast Network announces today that eight games are on the broadcast slate for Friday, October 3, featuring teams from four different twin cities conferences, and teams from all four corners of the metro area.  All eight games can be heard on the Minnesota Sports Broadcast Network’s website at www.mnsportsnetwork.com.  Previews of each game are as follows:


Saint Thomas Academy (4-1, 3-1 Classic Suburban) vs. Richfield (2-3, 1-3 Classic Suburban): The Saint Thomas Academy Cadets will be looking for their fourth victory in a row on Friday night, as they head on the road to take on the Richfield Spartans, who are also on a two-game winning streak.  The Cadets, who have scored more than 40 points in each of their wins this season, racked up a 47-21 in a victory over Henry Sibley last Friday night.  Meanwhile, Richfield’s defense has been their catalyst recently, giving up just eight points in their past two games, leading them to victories over South St. Paul (19-0) and St. Paul Arlington (14-8).  Saint Thomas Academy won last season’s match-up, 36-6 at Richfield.


Mahtomedi (5-0, 5-0 Classic Suburban) vs. Edina (3-2, 1-2 Classic Lake): The Mahtomedi Zephyrs will travel across the twin cities on Friday night to face the Edina Hornets in a match-up of two of the top individual players in the state, Mahtomedi running back Stephen Johnson and Edina quarterback Anders Lee.  Johnson, who leads the state in rushing yards with 1,045, scored four touchdowns last week in a 33-18 win over Simley.  Johnson’s 14 rushing touchdowns ranks second in the state, behind Anders Lee, who has 21 rushing scores for the Hornets.  Lee scored all three touchdowns for Edina last week, but the Hornets were not able to withstand the Minnetonka Skippers, who scored twice in the fourth quarter to beat Edina 28-21.  Along with the 21 rushing touchdowns for Lee, he also is second in the state in passing yards, with 1,220.  Mahtomedi comes into this game ranked #1 in Class 4A. 


Wayzata (5-0, 2-0 Classic Lake) vs. Hopkins (4-1, 1-1 Classic Lake): The top two in the Classic Lake Conference will square off on Friday night, as the Hopkins Royals host the Wayzata Trojans in a game that points to an offensive shootout.  Both teams are averaging more than 40 points per game, including a 63 point effort for Wayzata over Robbinsdale Armstrong and a 56 point game for Hopkins vs. Edina.  However, while both teams can score at any time, Wayzata has been stout defensively all season, giving up just seven points per game, while Hopkins has given up an average of 28 points per game.  Senior quarterback Sean Borman, who has missed most of the last three games with a knee sprain, may be back for Friday’s game.  If not, senior Charlie Hacker, who has gone 2-1 in place of Borman, will get the nod again for Hopkins.  Wayzata shut out Hopkins in last season’s game, 28-0. 


Lakeville North (4-1, 4-1 Lake) vs. Rosemount (4-1, 4-0 Lake): The Lakeville North Panthers will try to extend their winning streak to three games on Friday night, when they head to Rosemount to take on an Irish squad coming off their first loss of the season.  The Panthers have been offensively unstoppable their past two games, scoring a combined 109 points against Burnsville (63) and Apple Valley (49).  In fact, in the Panthers’ four wins this season, they have scored at least 31 points in each game.  Meanwhile, the Rosemount Irish are in a regroup mode after losing their first game of the season in a non-conference clash with Hopkins last Friday night.  In that game, the Irish were able to keep the high-octane offense of Hopkins at bay early, holding the score to a 7-7 tie at the half, but in the end the Royals were able to make the game a shootout, eventually knocking the Irish off by a final score of 32-21.  Rosemount won last season’s match-up with the Panthers, 17-0.


Apple Valley (3-2, 3-1 Lake) vs. Lakeville South (3-2, 2-2 Lake):  Two teams from the Lake Conference will try to regroup on Friday night in Lakeville, as the Apple Valley Eagles and the Lakeville South Cougars will try to get back on the winning track after each lost last week.  Apple Valley comes into Friday’s match-up on a two game losing streak, having lost their past two games on the road at Wayzata (44-14) and Lakeville North (46-13).  The Eagles, now playing their third straight road game, will undoubtedly be trying to re-establish their defense, which early in the season allowed them to start the year 3-0 before their past two games.  Lakeville South, meanwhile, is coming off a historical loss of sorts for their program.  Last Friday’s 42-14 loss at Eastview was the largest margin of defeat in the Cougars’ history, 28 points.  They will try and recover from that game on their home turf, where they have not played in three weeks as well.  If last year is any indication, this game should be extremely close.  In their only previous meeting, Lakeville South held on to defeat Apple Valley by a score of 21-20.


Eagan (2-3, 1-3 Lake) vs. Bloomington Kennedy (0-5, 0-4 Lake): The Eagan Wildcats will look to even their record at 3-3 this Friday, when they take on a Bloomington Kennedy Eagles team that will be trying to notch their first win of the season.  Eagan broke a three-game losing streak in week five, knocking off Chaska by a score of 25-8, and are looking to win back-to-back games since 2005, when they beat Henry Sibley and Bloomington Kennedy in the 2005 section 5AAAAA playoffs (after going 0-8 in the regular season) before losing to Cretin-Derham Hall in the sectional final.  Bloomington Kennedy, meanwhile, is looking to snap a six-game losing streak dating back to last season.  They nearly broke that streak last week, when they led rival Bloomington Jefferson 27-17 in the fourth quarter before the Jaguars scored the final two touchdowns of the game to win 31-27.  Eagan will be looking to avenge last season’s 41-7 Bloomington Kennedy victory. 


Stillwater (3-2, 3-2 Suburban East) vs. Forest Lake (2-3, 1-3 Suburban East): The Forest Lake Rangers will be trying to break a two-game losing streak on Friday, as they host the Stillwater Ponies, a team that has alternated wins and losses each week all season.  The Rangers, who have lost the past two games at Woodbury (33-21) and at White Bear Lake (34-13), will be playing at home, where they are a perfect 2-0 thus far, as opposed to 0-3 on the road.  Stillwater, meanwhile, has played well on the road, (going 2-0) but has had trouble at home, winning just one of three games played at Pony Stadium.  The Ponies were able to come out victorious in last week’s home contest, defeating Hastings by a score of 44-20.  The teams have alternated wins in their past three meetings in this series, and each have been within 10 points, with Stillwater winning in 2005 (21-19) and 2007 (27-17), and Forest Lake winning in 2006 (28-20). 


Roseville (0-5, 0-4 Suburban East) vs. Park of Cottage Grove (0-5, 0-5 Suburban East): Something’s got to give for either the Roseville Raiders or the Park of Cottage Grove Wolfpack in week five, as each team looks for its first win of the season in this match-up at District Stadium in Cottage Grove.  Both the Raiders and Wolfpack come in to the game having given up 42 points in their previous games, with Roseville losing last week to Cretin-Derham Hall, 42-13, and Park getting shut out at Mounds View, 42-0.  Though neither team has a win thus far, both teams may have played better than their records may indicate.  Roseville led Stillwater in the opening week of the season 13-10 going into the fourth quarter before losing in double overtime to the Ponies 29-28, while Park of Cottage Grove has lost three games this season by five points or less.  Roseville has won the last two meetings in the series, including last year’s 31-21 victory in Roseville.
