St. Thomas Academy comeback tops busy Friday night in prep football

St. Thomas Academy's come-from-behind win over Mahtomedi was the marquee game in a great night of high school football across Minnesota. Blaine, Lakeville North, and Rogers were among the other big winners.

Week three of Minnesota's high school football season was headlined by the matchup of the second and third ranked teams in Class 4A. The meeting did not disappoint, as the Cadets used a second-half comeback to earn their first win on the Zephyrs' home field.

In Blaine, the Bengals used five interceptions to stay undefeated by beating rival Champlin Park 35-21.

Lakeville North stayed on top of the tough Lake Conference with a 21-14 home field win over Edina.

In a battle of Mississippi 8 Conference unbeatens, Rogers prevailed over St. Michael-Albertville 35-21.
