Here are this week’s options for Team of the Week presented by Minnesota National Guard:
The Panthers started the week off with a bang, upsetting No. 4A Goodhue Monday in overtime. There was no letdown game either as the Panthers backed that up with a win at Zumbrota-Mazeppa the next night. Pine Island wrapped up the week with a blowout win over Cannon Falls.
The Titans picked up two big wins last week, handily defeating North St. Paul and St. Thomas Academy. Tartan’s only loss on the year is a six-point loss at Mahtomedi and the wins over the Cadets and Polars keeps them alive in the conference race.
When teams beat Goodhue, people notice. The Eagles bounced back from a 16-point loss to Caledonia the previous weekend and picked up two solid wins last week. Lourdes beat Hayfield in double overtime before knocking off Goodhue 38-34.
The Tigers improved to 13-3 on the year and picked up a pair of wins last week. They opened the week with a blowout win over Holy Family Catholic and wrapped it up with a huge win over No. 5AAA Orono. Calvin Wishart starred in that one, scoring 32 points.
Winners of 10 games in a row, the Tigers are on a roll. Nevis picked up two huge wins last week, starting with a 60-40 win at No. 2A Red Lake Tuesday. The Tigers backed that up with a 13-point win over Cass Lake-Bena — the team that handed them their only loss on the season.
