Lakeville South is one win away from the state tournament and has yet to allow a goal in the postseason.

The Cougars won their 12th straight game, doing so in dominating fashion, winning as the No. 1 seed over No. 4 seed Rochester Century, 21-0, in Friday’s Section 1A semifinal.

Some nice saves by Rochester Century (11-4) goalie Abigail Conners kept a high-powered Lakeville South (14-1) offense to two goals in the opening nine-plus minutes. The Cougars have scored seven or more goals in every game this season and double digits in all but two.
