Southwest Christian vs. Blake

7 p.m., Tuesday, Sept. 10

Twelve to zero. Ten to one. Nine to zero. Eight to one. Yes, these are scores posted by No. 1-1A Blake in a thoroughly dominant start to the season.

Blake’s closest game to date? A 4-0 triumph on Saturday over Rochester Lourdes, once ranked in Class 1A's top 10, which failed to register a shot on goal against the Bears.

Junior Benji Pomonis, senior Will Mortenson and junior Keegan James all have scored at least nine goals for the defending Class 1A champion Bears (7-0-0, 4-0-0). 

Southwest Christian (5-1-0, 0-0-0) started the season with three one-goal victories and 2-0 loss to Waconia before cruising comfortably past New Life Academy (11-1 on Sept. 5) and Columbia Heights (3-1 on Sept. 6) last week. Sophomore Jon Brain (six goals) and senior Jeremiah Konkel (five goals) have provided the bulk of the Stars’ scoring.
