Minnetonka – W, 28-21 over No. 2 (6A) Maple Grove

The No. 3 Skippers emerged from a see-saw, turnover-filled affair to get the seven-point victory at home against the Crimson.

Junior quarterback Aaron Syverson continued his breakout season with a 240-yard, three-touchdown performance against the stout Maple Grove defense. His third passing score was a 37-yard strike to Eric Douville that stopped a run of 21-straight Crimson points and gave Minnetonka the lead for good.

With Maple Grove driving for a potential game-tying score, the Skippers defense provided the heroics. The unit stuffed Crimson running back Evan Hull on a fourth-down rush with less than 30 seconds to play to seal the win.

Nevis – W, 44-12 over No. 6 (9M) Waubun

The rematch of last year’s Section 8, 9-Man final had the makings of another classic when Waubun trailed Nevis 16-12 midway through the second quarter.

The Tigers, however, had other ideas. In a role reversal from last year’s playoff game, they scored the final 28 points of the game to pull away and improve their record to 3-0.
