Bloomington Kennedy is a newcomer to the Tri-Metro Conference this season. So far, the Eagles look right at home as they sit in first place in the conference with an unbeaten record, but will be tested when Richfield comes to town.
The Eagles (6-0-1, 2-0) had not even suffered a draw until Sept. 10, notching a 2-2 tie against St. Louis Park at Bloomington Stadium.
Bloomington Kennedy's calling card has been goal-scoring, finding the back of the net four times a game on average. One of those players who has contributed to that is senior Santiago Singer. He scored both of his team's goals in the St. Louis Park game.
Richfield (4-1, 1-1) is close behind Bloomington Kennedy and has garnered some more respect at the state level, ranked No. 5 in the Sept. 6 Class 2A coaches' poll.
While the Richfield defense has allowed just three goals all season, there is still plenty of production on the offensive end. Antwane Ruiz, a junior forward, got things going in a big way this season with five goals in his first three games of the season.
