The 5A state quarterfinal between section 7 winner Coon Rapids and section 5 winner Spring Lake Park was a back-and-forth, defensively dominated 14-2 victory for the Coon Rapids Cardinals that sent them to the state semifinals and a date with the Chaska Hawks next Friday at U.S. Bank Stadium. Before the game looms too large in the future however, it's important to remember the past and acknowledge the Northstar Football News Offensive Players of the Game from last Saturday's matchup. Congratulations to the Spring Lake Park Panthers senior class on a wonderful 2019 season and good luck to Coon Rapids at the Bank. Hudl recap:

1) David Geebli (5'9, 180lbs.) was without a doubt the offensive MVP from both teams. His 28 attempts going for 115 yards (4.1 average) and a TD in the game led all offensive statistical categories except passing. Only a sophomore, Geebli has a bright future ahead of him and was a physical back the played behind his pads with a lot more strength than his age/weight suggested. I'm going to make sure to keep an eye on Geebli moving forward for the Cardinals. Geebli midseason Hudl:
