Minnetonka doesn’t have a wunderkind goal scorer. Wayzata’s defense is incredibly stingy. So the sizable advantage in this matchup should belong to the Trojans, right? Not so fast.
This is one of those rivalries where stats and trends and tendencies could just as easily be replaced by a coin flip in predicting the outcome.
Minnetonka has allowed more than just one goal once this season. Junior Alex Gonikman is among several scoring threats for the No. 5-3A Skippers (6-2-1).
Wayzata, meanwhile, has won all but two of its games (both against Edina — and one was a 3-0 loss to the Hornets on Sept. 20) by shutout. Edin Nguyen is among the scoring leaders for the No. 1-3A Trojans (9-1-0).
