1. Eden Prairie
A 5-0 start is nothing new for Eden Prairie. As a matter of fact, this is the sixth straight year the Eagles have started the season 5-0.
They survived a first half scare against Minnetonka but walked away with a convincing victory. The Trojans pulled away with a dominating 22-point third quarter.
3. Cretin-Derham Hall
The Raiders are 5-0 and clearly on their way to an 8-0 regular season and Suburban East Conference title.
4. Lakeville South
Could just as easily put Lakeville North, also 5-0, in this spot but the Panthers haven't played the schedule that South has. The two meet this Friday in the battle of Lakeville. It could be a classic.
5. Mounds View
They are 4-1 and the only non-undefeated team in my top five. Their only loss is to Cretin-Derham Hall, and it wasn't a bad loss. They won on Friday night, due in large part to a backup running back.
Honorable Mention: Lakeville North, Anoka, Blaine, Mankato West, St. Thomas Academy, South St. Paul, Rogers, Rochester Mayo, Osseo, Shakopee, Owatonna.
