A roller coaster season for Chanhassen continued upward Tuesday in a come-from-behind thriller against Benilde-St. Margaret’s.
The visiting Storm (7-3, 3-1) scored six of the game’s final seven goals to finish off a comeback 10-9 win on a warm May evening. And it was a game featuring two top-five state ranked programs with some recent history. The Metro West Conference rivals most recently met in the state semifinals last season where Chanhassen won 11-8 and eventually finished as the runner-up to Lakeville South.
