The three-time defending state champion Eagles (16-2) are back in the title game, prevailing in a weather-shortened semifinal round game over the Panthers (14-3) at Chanhassen High School.

 The game was called with under seven minutes remaining after lightning was spotted in the area.

The top-seeded Eagles controlled the majority of the game. Maggie Brown put the Eagles ahead for good 6:30 into the game. They went on to score seven consecutive goals in a 14:18 span in the first half.

“We had no holding back this game,” junior Brooke Lewis said. “Sometimes we stall a little bit. We wanted to keep pushing and show that we deserved to win this.”
