Two of the Northwest Suburban Conference's highest scoring offenses will battle this week when Champlin Park hosts Blaine on Wednesday.

The Rebels (9-0, 8-0) have outscored their last three opponents 47-7, and just one team has come within three goals of beating Champlin Park all season long. Rebels junior midfielder Sam Nolan (50-16-66) is a big key for the high-octane offense.

Blaine will need all the firepower they can get from sophomore midfielder Abby Jones (32-12-44) on the road against first place Champlin Park, which is second in the league in scoring with 124 goals. 

The Bengals (5-4, 5-3) are also an offensively-focused team, scoring 110 times in nine games for an impressive average of 12.2 goals per game.

With Jones and Nolan spearheading superior offenses, this Northwest Suburban matchup promises to be a high-scoring affair in our pick for the Top Game of the Week.
