Bursville vs. White Bear Lake
2 p.m., Saturday, Sept. 16
Burnsville deservedly started receiving votes in the Class 2A poll two weeks ago. The Blaze (5-1, 1-0) have posted wins over DeLaSalle (2-0), Edina (3-1) and Minneapolis Southwest (6-1). The lone loss, a 5-2 final, came Aug. 31 to No. 2-2A Minneapolis Washburn. Burnsville responded with a 5-0 win over Prior Lake and a 6-0 win over Rochester Century.
The No. 10-2A Bears picked up big wins over Eastview (2-1) on Aug. 26 and 1-0 win over No. 5-1A Mahtomedi on Aug. 29. Edina escaped with a 1-0 win Saturday over White Bear Lake (3-2, 1-0) but the Bears are expected to make serious runs at the Suburban East Conference and Class 2A, Section 4 titles this year.
