Hey everyone, it's Joe Nelson from FM 100.3's Friday Night Scoreboard. There hasn't been a lot of action in my top five this season, but I'm doing the best I can to find a team capable of surprising the state's top teams. I think I found one this week.
1. Eden Prairie (6-0)
The Eagles shouldn't have any trouble beating Edina this week, but next Wednesday is a possible preview of the state championship game. It's Eden Prairie vs. Wayzata... Awesome.
2. Wayzata (6-0)
3. Cretin Derham-Hall (6-0)
This is a well-balanced team that continues to improve. The Raiders have allowed double-digit points in a game only once this season.
4. Lakeville North (6-0)
I thought Lakeville South was the better team in Lakeville, but I was dead wrong. South was destroyed by North, 30-6. I've been searching for a team like this all year long, and they could be a dark horse state championship contender.
5. Mounds View (5-1)
The Mustangs have put together a nice four game winning streak. Their last two victories were against tough opponents, Stillwater and White Bear Lake.
