The Story Line: With whispers of overtime in the air, Blake scored with just 3:08 remaining in regulation to defeat Duluth East 1-0 and return to the Class-A title game. David Brenton created the game winning goal, by beating a Greyhound defender on the end-line and dribbling towards the net. Brenton then dished the ball back off to Nick Warner at the 6-yard line, and Warner put in the game winner. Blake will face Totino-Grace in the final on Thursday. The Bears lost in the championship game last year to Duluth Marshall.
