Andover halts Knights' playoff march

At football games at Andover High School, whenever the home team gets a first down or scores a touchdown, the sound of a barking dog is played over the public address system. Those canine sounds were heard quite often on Saturday afternoon as the Huskies ended Irondale's season.
Andover scored on its first three possessions of the game and then blew the game open in the third quarter of its 42-3 win over the Knights in the Section 4AAAAA semifinals.

Mustangs avenge loss, advance to section final

There was a time in the late 1990s and early 2000s when Mounds View and White Bear Lake met in the section playoffs nearly every year. What made that era even more notable was that it seemed more often than not that the team that lost the regular-season match-up would rise up and get revenge in the post-season.

Wild victory doesn’t help Mustangs in seed department

It’s hard to imagine a more entertaining high school football game than the one Mounds View High School treated its fans to last Wednesday. The Mustangs came out on the winning side of a seesaw affair against Roseville on the night before the annual state teachers’ convention.The 50-47 contest left spectators nearly breathless and gave Mounds View head coach Jim Galvin his 100th career victory. One thing it didn’t do, however, was help the Mustangs in terms of section seedings.

Road to state runs through Roseville’s stadium

The last time the Roseville Area High School football team made it to the state tournament, it won a pair of home section playoff games before playing a third section game on the road. This year, the Raiders need just the two wins on home turf to qualify for state.
Roseville, despite dropping its final game of the regular season last Wednesday to Mounds View, received the No. 2 seed in Section 4 of Class 6A and opens the post season Friday at home against seventh-seeded Woodbury. A victory over the Royals guarantees the Raiders a second home playoff game on Nov. 1 with the winner that night advancing to the state tournament.
