We task our reporters with identifying several intriguing games throughout the state to assemble our Top Games of the Week. The matchups are presented in no particular order, and when there are additional games we want to highlight, we’ll include them with brief notes.
Blake vs. St. Paul Academy, 4:30 p.m., Tuesday, Aug. 27. Defending Class 1A champion Blake (2-0, 0-0) is off to a sizzling start this season, with the No. 2-1A Bears pummeling Fridley 8-1 in its opener last Thursday before thrashing Spring Lake Park 10-1 on Saturday. St. Paul Academy (0-2, 0-0), meanwhile, looks to right the ship after starting the season with losses to St. Paul Humboldt (2-1 last Thursday) and 1-0 to St. Thomas Academy (1-0 on Saturday).
Prior Lake vs. Edina, 6 p.m., Tuesday, Aug. 27. Home victories over Minneapolis Washburn (3-2) and Breck (3-1) have the No. 3-2A Hornets (2-0, 0-0) off to a hot start, but No. 8-2A Prior Lake (0-1, 0-0) figures to provide a much stiffer test.
