Prior Lake at Rosemount
730 p.m., Tuesday, April 28
Prior Lake heads to Rosemount in battle between two of the top 10 teams in the state and top three teams in the South Suburban Conference.
The No. 2 Lakers (4-0, 2-0) are tied with the No. 7 Irish (4-0, 2-0) -- along with Lakeville South -- for first place in the league thanks to a trio of upperclassmen.
Junior midfielder Ben Ward has a team-high 11 goals, while senior midfielder Cullen Sowder has nine and senior attackman Taylor Kropp has five.
Junior attackman Luke VanOverbeke tallied 11 goals and 10 assists in Rosemount's first three games. Junior attackman Jack Alberts (5-3-8) and senior midfielder Blake Longhenry (4-5-9) give the Irish (4-0, 2-0) alternative scoring options, but Rosemount isn't all about the offense. The Irish also feature a strong defense, having allowed only four goals in conference games this season.
