Wayzata vs. Edina

5 p.m., Tuesday, Sept. 22

Wayzata boys' soccer has got its plate full entering Tuesday's matchup with Lake Conference rival Edina.

Twenty two wins. Zero losses. That’s how Edina ended last season, when the No. 22 Hornets co-head coach Bill Garner had tattooed on his shin a few months prior became dream fodder for sportswriters up against deadline following Edina’s 2-1 win over East Ridge for the Class 2A state title.

Edina’s regular season this year has been shortened to 11 games, with a postseason plan still to be determined. Not the sort of setup that inspires tattoos or headlines. But the abbreviated season has been fun nonetheless for Wayzata, which is off to an unblemished start that includes a 2-1 triumph over Edina on Aug. 27 to start the season. Edina has also lost to Minnetonka — 1-0 on Sept. 14. However, the Hornets (4-2-0, 4-2-0) have actually been climbing the state rankings, all the way to No. 2 in the Class 2A coaches’ poll from Sept. 15.

Edina features junior Sammy Presthus, a top goal scorer from last season’s team who is having a good fall with four points (3 goals, 1 assist) in the Hornets' last three games. Goalkeeper Hank Stechmann, a senior, has also been key. He had six saves in the loss to Minnetonka.

Senior Charlie Kassmir is among the No. 1-2A Trojans’ (4-0-1, 4-0-1) top scorers with four goals this season. He had a goal on Sept. 16 in a 5-0 triumph over Buffalo.
