Benilde-St. Margaret’s vs. Blake

7 p.m., Tuesday, April 27

While Blake hasn’t won a state title since its run of five-straight ended in 2014, the Bears remain in the mix of the state’s consistently good-and-often-great programs.

Blake’s Saturday loss to Prior Lake halted a two-game win streak to start the season but proves the No. 6 Bears (2-1) once again have the talent to compete with the state’s elite teams.

Junior attacker Erin Lee had nine goals and sophomore midfielder Ellie Morrison tallied eight through Blake’s first two games.

Benilde-St. Margaret’s (3-1) might just be the state’s best program never to have reached the state tournament. A 13-4 victory over No. 10 Breck on April 23 a week after a 9-8 loss to No. 3 Lakeville South indicate the No. 9 Red Knights, led by freshman Julia Evens’ 12 goals, might just end that drought this spring.
